Many companies in the water sector are involved in the development or application of new technologies. Such technologies have the disadvantage that their environmental benefits cannot always be demonstrated, simply because the technology is too novel and therefore does not always fit within existing assessment schemes. To stimulate quicker market uptake, the EU has developed the so-called Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) tool. During the Aqua Nederland Vakbeurs, KWR and the Polish IETU (Institute for Industrial Areas) will be organising a workshop on ETV, to which you are cordially invited.
With ETV, claims concerning a technology can be investigated and verified independently. The tool delivers a ‘Statement of Verification’, a confirmation of the claims, making them credible and scientifically sound. This can allow for quicker market access/uptake and/or a greater market share for suppliers, and reduces the risks for technology users. In this workshop (partly in English), experts from IETU and KWR will explain more about the ETV programme and how this may add value for your company.
The ‘Environmental Technology Verification’ workshop will take place on Tuesday, 13 March, at 15:00-17:00, in the Evenementenhal Gorinchem (meeting hall 1). Register here for free. You can also visit the Aqua Nederland Vakbeurs for free before or after the workshop, including the KWR stand on excellent water quality (stand H.111) and, before the ETV workshop, the ‘Excellent water quality in the watercycle’ symposium’ (also in meeting hall 1).
