Increase of population and demand for clean water, as well as deterioration of water resource quality and quantity are grand challenges of the century. Moreover, global climate change accentuates the already uneven distribution of freshwater, destabilizing the supply in water-stressed regions. Treatment of unconventional waters including; reclamation of wastewaters, brackish and seawater desalination, water loss reduction, deep groundwater uptake would be great potentials to augment water supply in the countries facing water scarcity.
The main objectives of the congress are to share the knowledge and experiences from the academia, private sector, water associations, and governments on the use of unconventional desalinated water, wastewater, rainwater, as well as the related technologies for supplying clean water to deprived zones such as Sistan and Baluchestan. Discussions on collaboration between the public-private knowledge owners and financing sectors presents opportunities in scaling up unconventional water treatment technologies for the humankind usage.
Some features of the UWTC:
Publication of selected papers in special issues of two Scopus journals:
UWTC 2021 has teamed up with the Special Journals Issue on Advances in Environmental Technology (AET) and Journal of Renewable Energy and Environment (JREE). A number of selected high-impact full text papers will also be considered for the special journals issues. All submitted papers will have the opportunity to be considered for this Special Journals Issue. The paper selection will be carried out during the peer review process as well as at the Congress presentation stage. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journal or publication. The final decision for paper selection will be made based on peer review reports by the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief jointly.
