II INTERNATIONAL DESALINATION SEMINAR IN ANTOFAGASTA
Development and sustainability for Latin America

The North of Chile, located in the driest desert of the world, has a great population and industrial growth, mainly related with mining projects, which require a reliable and sustainably water supply in permanent growth.

As a result, the desalination technology is presented as a reliable alternative which has been proven in countries like Spain, Australia and Middle East. These countries have faced similar challenges to those faced by this region, such as drinking water supply for cities and industrial water for current mining sites and mine development projects. Consequently, desalination becomes a strategic tool for economic development of the North of Chile and southwest of South America.

On that account, in 2008 it took place the 1st International Desalination Seminar in Antofagasta, which was organized by the University of Antofagasta and Aguas de Antofagasta S.A., with the participation of leading desalination consultants, plant manufacturers and desalination equipment suppliers.

Now in 2010, for the second version of this seminar, Aguas de Antofagasta S.A. has joined with Universidad Católica del Norte through the Water Technology Research Center for Arid Zones (CEITSAZA) to carry out the coordination and execution of the seminar. The objective of this seminar is to present new technologies to improve desalination plant operations, design, construction and plant operation experiences around the world, as well as desalination business development experiences and related activities.

The seminar venue will become in the main meeting point in South America where there will be equipment suppliers, manufacturers, consultants and final customers, as well as government regulators, collage students, scholars and researchers interested in desalination technology as well as South American government entities in charge of water issues who are responsible for planning public policy and authorities related with environmental regulations from Chile and South America.
