17-19 October 2018 – Bologna, Italy – in collaboration with IWA & H2O Fair

Where | When
IWA WaterIDEAS 2018 is held in cooperation and conjunction with ACCADUEO www.accadueo.com during H2O Fair in Bologna (17 – 19 October 2018) – the international exhibition of technologies for treatment and distribution of drinking water and wastewater treatment and follows a series of successful conferences of IWA, including WaterLossEurope Conference in Ferrara in May 2012 and WaterIDEAS in Bologna in 2014 and 2016.
The Water utilities have old infrastructure to meet water demand, stringent environmental targets and increasing regulatory requirements. At the same time the utilities have to improve their operational efficiency and reduce the volume of non-revenue water.
Aim of the Conference
IWA WaterIDEAS 2018 is intended to present and discuss the latest developments, strategies, techniques and applications of international best practices in Innovative Water Networks Management.
Conference contents
The conference will include a number of keynote presentations by selected international experts dealing with any smart water related topics (Smart water networks, Innovative data driven technologies, Water Loss, Energy and Demand in Water Distribution Systems, AMR etc.). The aim is to provide a comprehensive program of the highest quality, reflecting a wide range of international experiences.
Workshops and Learning Modules
IWA WaterIDEAS 2018 will also host (click link for details):

Isle Emerging Technologies Pavilion

at Accadueo (H2O) Fair, Bologna (Italy), October 17-19, 2018


Innovation and the adoption of new technologies are fundamental for achieving an adequate development of water networks and industrial water management systems. As Strategic Partner of Accadueo-H2O for their Innovation Program, Isle will host the Isle Emerging Technologies Pavilion during the H2O Fair. The Isle Emerging Technologies Pavilion will facilitate as the meeting point between the water utilities behind the challenges and the innovative solution providers. The pavilion aims to showcase promising new water solutions for the Italian market. This select group of water technology businesses have been vetted on market readiness, commercial viability and impact on water resource management. Below, some of the companies present at the Emerging Technologies Pavilion:

·         Inflowmatix (UK): solutions to support water network operators to control pressures and optimise the water supply service (https://inflowmatix.com/).

·         Pipecare-Curapipe (Israel-Italy): technology for the simultaneous and without excavation repairing of main trunks and injections (https://www.curapipe.com/).

·         Invenio (UK): patent pending system for estimating the flow rate through small diameter service connections that does not rely on a water meter (https://www.invenio-systems.co.uk/).

·         Riventa (UK): solutions for precision on-site measurement of pump, blower and turbine efficiency, and to optimize operational performance and maintenance (https://riventa.com/).

·         Martinek (Austria): innovative sensor-based solution to systematically force the recognition and reduction of water losses by open and closed network operation (https://martinek.org/).

·         SIS-TER (Italy): Artificial Intelligence-based platform to monitor, analyse and manage big‑data sets from the various components of the water system (http://www.sis-ter.it/).

·         Syrinix (UK): intelligent pipeline monitoring solutions for clearer network insights (http://www.syrinix.com/).

·         Hydropath (UK): physical water conditioning devices to improve flocculation, prevent struvite scaling and reduce biofouling (https://hydropath.com/).

On Wednesday 17th October from 10:00 to 11:30, visitors will have a special access to the pavilion through the Water&WasteWater Emerging Innovation Tour, a guided tour to review the innovative technology solutions on display in the fields of water and wastewater. The tour provides easy access to the Pavilion, explanations about the showcased technologies from an Isle technology expert and direct introductions to the exhibitors.

The tour will be organised according to the number of participants. For further information, please contact Andrea Piazzoli (Isle) at +39.338.8747691 or email: andrea.piazzoli@isleutilities.com or info@water-ideas.com.
