  • Water Quality System

    Let me explain that our basic idea is how better to use the not many typologies (and parameters) of on-line sensors available on market to make low-cost sustainable intelligent monitoring. We all know that the total water quality is related to about fifty of quality measurement analytic parameters, but on-site and in on-line way, it is possible to detect only about ten electro-chemical or ISE ...

  • WISKI – Working Towards a Holistic View on Water

    Only 3% of all water on Earth is fresh water, 2/3rds of which is frozen and the rest mainly underground, with surface water possessing a small fraction of that 1/3rd. Water stress and scarcity are major concerns in the EU. In 2012, the World Economic Forum identified ‘Water supply crises’ as the leading threat to society. A Holistic View of Water Facing the challenges of water stress, ...
