How Water Can Flow in the Circular Economy

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Room 401, Chelan

How can circular strategies improve both our engagement with and conservation of water?

As climate change advances alongside increasing rates of water consumption, water must be at the center of circular economy conversations. Keeping water in circulation is no longer just a question of efficiency but one of security. To fuel today’s linear economy, groundwater is pumped out of aquifers faster than it can be naturally replenished. Long periods of drought are exacerbating already diminishing amounts of water, while elsewhere, excessive rainfall is overwhelming water treatment infrastructure and the absorption capacity of soil.

What improvements are being made to stabilize the water supply? Closed Loop Partners and innovators in this space will discuss water circularity and advances in filtering industrial water streams. This discussion will shed light on the status of overloaded industrial water filtration systems, and how water reuse can improve these systems and build community resilience. Learn about the groundswell of new innovations and investment opportunities making water circularity possible.
