China is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most important growth markets
for desalination and water reuse. One reason is that China’s demand for water is
expected to grow 63% by 2030 according to the Asia Water Project. Another factor
is the country’s 12th Five-Year Plan, which established a goal of having 2.2-2.6 million m3/d of online desalination capacity by 2015, more than double the capacity over 2012 when the plan was set forth.With this demand comes great opportunity, and this is one of the reasons that we expect to see a new record for attendance at the 2013 World Congress
