Emerging Technologies Programme

Municipal & Industrial Challenges and Solutions

IWA and Isle Utilities present

The IWA-Isle Emerging Technologies Challenge Exchange Hub

The water sector faces some key challenges such as rapidly rising customer demand due to population growth and urbanization / industrialization, increasing energy costs and in most regions an aging asset base with minimal available finance to maintain or replace it. The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition will be the stage where industrial utilities behind the challenges and solution providers showcase unique and innovative best practices. The cooperation between solution provider and utilities will be presented in a program shared between Municipal & Industrial Challenges and Solutions.

The Challenge exchange forum will showcase concrete, relevant and urgent challenges from leading utilities, industrial end users and other stakeholders. Everyday we will focus on a Municipal or Industrial Challenge or Best Practice in (Waste) water market. An interactive panel discussion will follow, where different perspectives will be shared on how to adapting innovations to support Environmental Water Sustainability. The latest global innovations will also be presented daily in a Dragon Den style pitch session.

Why the Challenge Exchange Hub?

  • A platform to showcase concrete, relevant and urgent challenges from End User Utilities
  • Enhanced visibility and exposure to the World of Water and multiple solutions providers together in Tokyo
  • Facilitating solution providers and other visitors to meet the utilities and pitch their solutions
  • Interactive forum sessions open and accessible to visitor and exhibitors to acknowledge best practices in a workshop format
