Title: Water and the Circular Economy
Speaker: David Baxter
When: Thursday 19th October 2017 at 1.15pm
Where: Room 3.6, Chancellors' Building, University of Bath (Location and maps)
Abstract: Despite the inherent circularity of the water cycle, water management occurs across a highly fragmented landscape, leading to conflicts, inefficiencies and waste amongst the complex array of water users. A drive for circular economy thinking in the water industry could help repair broken links and make better use of our most precious resources. The technical solutions and financial models that would make this a reality are growing fast. But are we doing enough to address the public health fears?
