DESCRIPTION

Water recycling is an opportunity and challenge to advance research and dialogue around sustainable water management solutions. Thanks to technology resources it can be used for a variety of purposes inclusive potable water use and, in this context, must follow quality parameters that vary according to the applications that will be destined. In regions with high water scarcity, this solution becomes essential for social, economic and environmental sustainability because it reduces stress on the water resource. Recycling water promotes productive activities across sectors, and consequently reduces negative economic and environmental impacts and diminishing potential conflicts through a sustainable water cycle.
