IDA 2022 World Congress: Sydney

Charting Resilient Water Solutions

The International Desalination Association’s flagship event, widely recognized as the premier event on advanced water treatment solutions in desalination and water reuse, returns to Australia a decade after the 2011 IDA World Congress held in Perth. The World Congress will take place during the week of October 9 – 13, 2022, in Sydney, Australia, at the International Convention Center Sydney (ICC Sydney).

IDA World Congress 2022 will consist of panel discussions, an excellent technical program, keynote presentations, an industry-driven exhibition, unparalleled networking opportunities, and specialized workshops. Global attendance from public and private sector leaders, researchers, and academics in desalination, water reuse, energy, environment, and project finance will provide knowledge-sharing and discussion opportunities for participants on many technical and business topics to ensure a secure water future.

First held in 1987, the IDA World Congress has been a global meeting point for promoting the appropriate use of desalination and water reuse technologies as a critical part of addressing the world’s freshwater shortages. The theme of the 2022 World Congress is Charting Resilient Water Solutions and how to secure a sustainable future that efficiently meets the growing water demand, threats to water security, and the increasing frequency and severity of droughts resulting from climate change.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Sydney!

Mrs. Shannon McCarthy, IDA Secretary General

EDS 2022: Las Palmas

Water and energy are the issues of this millennium.

This conference on desalination for the environment will be devoted to advances towards providing fresh water for all, at affordable cost and at economical energy requirements. With limited and depleting natural sources, desalination can supplement some of the critically lacking amounts of water needed for sustainable development.

Its place in the water cycle will be discussed. The conference will overview the most recent developments in desalination technology, its cost and extent of application, including socio-economic and environmental issues.

It will bring together research scientists, decision makers, managers, design engineers and operators from water companies, industries, government departments, consulting firms, research institutes and universities.

The place of industry, research and government decision making in this booming market will be addressed.

Why and how desalination should be integrated into the national or regional water management plans, ensuring socio- economic and environmental benefits, will be the focal point of the conference.

Conference Topics will include:

  • Feedwater pretreatment for desalination
  • Seawater desalination by reverse osmosis
  • Brackish water desalination
  • Nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration in water treatment processes
  • Forward osmosis
  • Pressure retarded osmosis
  • Removal of specific compounds
