About the Conference 

As the global population continues to grow, so does the demand for water resources. Therefore, it is imperative that we explore innovative solutions to ensure the sufficient availability and quality of water for generations to come. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 has emerged as the primary guideline in our endeavors to tackle the escalating water demand and forestall a potential global water crisis.

In alignment with the United Nations' SDG 6 for achieving universal access to clean water and sanitation by 2030, we are pleased to welcome you to the highly important International Conference on Emerging Trends in Water Treatment 2024 (ETWT-2024) from 17 to 19  September 2024, Mikkeli, Finland.
