About the event

Explore cutting-edge water quality assessment technologies.

Join us for an enlightening session featuring innovations from leading companies and research groups and explore cutting-edge innovative technologies for monitoring water quality. Discover solutions for monitoring water quality and detecting contaminants, from biological to metals and toxins. The event will showcase both innovations that are currently being trialled and exciting new developments poised to shape the future of water quality assessment. This event will have an international flavour with an insight into innovation that is being used in Australia to monitor water quality.

Attendees will learn about the application of biosensing and flow cytometry, for analysing waterborne microorganisms and particles. The application of capillary electrophoresis will be discussed for its versatility in routine monitoring of water and its potential for detecting chemical contaminants. The event will also explore inexpensive optical methods, offering cost-effective and sensitive approaches to monitoring water. Additionally, innovation for monitoring and surveying pipes, using acoustic technology will be covered.

How will these technologies be adopted by the water industry? I round table session with the speakers will explore this thorny issue, learning from the companies who are undergoing trials or have there innovation already in place.
