Old acquaintances and new contacts at the Accadueo H2O Show 2018 in Bologna

The Accadueo H2O Show in Bologna took place from the 17th to the 19th of October this year. Over 300 exhibitors from several countries were represented and welcomed more than 9,000 visitors. The international trade fair focused on three topics this year:

H2O Urban: Municipal water treatment, water distribution, sustainability
H2O Industry: Technology for treatment systems, equipment and services for water management
CH4: Technology and systems for the transport and distribution of gas

Italy has been an important market for us for many years, especially in the area of ​​Rome are some regions with very high arsenic concentrations in the groundwater due to the volcanic underground. For example, the world's largest adsorber plant for removing arsenic with GEH is located in Italy, treating 1,300 cubic meters of water per hour, with more than 200 tonnes of GEH 102 being used.
That means we could welcome many well-known business partners and customers, but also make new contacts from Italy and neighboring countries. We could see that the topic  arsenic removal is still current and new topics, such as the removal of vanadium from drinking water, are coming on the agenda.

On Wednesday morning, GEH Wasserchemie also hosted a workshop with plant builders and users of GEH. Here, application examples were presented, current problems discussed and experiences shared in practice.

We were very pleased about the participation in the workshop and the interest in our technology at our booth and would like to thank everyone involved!
