Showcased at the Siemens booth will be a range of high-performance solutions for water and waste water treatment facilities as well as desalination plants. The Congress will be focusing on issues surrounding the protection and sustainable utilization of water as a resource.
The growing global requirement for drinking water has triggered a continuing rise in the number of large and complex water treatment plants. Alongside new water and waste water treatment facilities, in many parts of the world the planning and implementation of desalination plants is also on the rise. Visitors to the exhibition staged alongside the IWRM Congress will have a chance to visit the Siemens booth to find out more about the concept of integrated engineering.
Integrated engineering offers operators an efficient solution encompassing not only the planning and engineering of new plants but also their subsequent automation. Plants of all different sizes and levels of complexity can be effectively planned and designed using the Comos engineering software.
Using a newly established interface, prepared engineering data can be transmitted directly to the Simatic PCS 7 process control system, substantially simplifying and speeding up the process of plant commissioning. The Comos engineering software solution also permits the selection and configuration of field devices.
The PIA Life Cycle Portal online configurator supports the simple selection and fault-free collation of device order numbers both quickly and accurately.
When it comes to rapid engineering of field devices across the whole life cycle of a plant – whether at the detail engineering, plant expansion or maintenance stage – the new interface to the PIA Life Cycle Portal makes available the necessary technical data.
With five keynote speeches as well as 15 workshops encompassing over 60 presentations, the IWRM 2012 will offer participants the opportunity to find out everything they could wish to know about water resources management. Together with the trade exhibition staged at the same time, the Conference is a key international information and communication platform for the water industry.
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research will also be present at the event to report on its integrated water resources management-related activities. The IWRM 2012 will be rounded off by the presentation of the NEO Innovation Prize for outstanding work in research and innovation. With participants from more than 25 countries expected to attend this year’s event, the IWRM Karlsruhe 2012 creates the ideal link between science, practice and politics.Siemens Sensors Environmental

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
