Industry Analyst Eric Meliton for Frost & Sullivan's Energy and Environment Practice

The progression of the global water industry is driven by a number of forces, from political and financial, to ecological and social. As the population continues to expand exponentially, these drivers must ensure the regional infrastructures are capable of supporting this prolific growth, particularly those facilities that provide vital necessities – expressly, water.  According to the United Nations, in the past 50 years alone, water withdrawals tripled due to this rapid population growth.   

During the "Water Quality & Water Reclamation" online event by GlobalSpec, Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Eric Meliton will address these challenges head-on on during his presentation, "Global Sustainability of Water," which will begin online at 11:30 a.m. ET on Jan. 30, 2013.  Meliton will address issues around water affordability, availability and sustainability, including regional and country-specific case study examples, as well as the following key audience takeaways:

  • Understand the scope and timeframe of global water resource challenges
  • Discover treatment technologies, processes and services addressing sustainability
  • Learn where sustainability initiatives will have the greatest impact
  • Preview the water/wastewater industry's market outlook beyond 2012

This presentation will be particularly informative for audiences involved in the provision of treatment technologies and services in the global water and wastewater industry, in addition to those seeking information regarding the long-term sustainability of a fundamental resource.

This GlobalSpec online event will also include educational sessions featuring Director of Integrated Information Management Chuck Scholpp of the Hach Company, Energy Engineer Justin Rundle from Honeywell, President and CEO Trevor Hill of Global Water, and Executive Vice President James A. Bell from Bio-Microbics, Inc. The day will close with interaction between attendees and exhibitors in the exhibit hall and knowledge exchange.
