Moreover, within the frame of activities developed during the event, it was the Technical Conference on the Spanish experience in irrigation modernization, organized by the Spanish Association of Irrigation and Drainage (AERyD) in which, Mr. Marcos Rincón, from Molecor, participated giving the speech “Analysis of materials used in irrigation modernizations”. The aim of this paper was to promote the establishment of technical and commercial relations among Spanish companies and institutions, as well as governments and agencies from other countries with interests in the irrigation field. Delegations from Peru, Romania and Turkey composed by senior ministerial positions attended this presentation, together with members of their diplomatic corps and the most prestigious business associations, public administrations, universities and other national entities.
Molecor, in its commitment to the environment, develops more and more efficient and sustainable systems. This fact was reflected with the technical presentation given by Mrs. Yolanda Martinez, “The environmental footprint in sustainable networks of PVC-O”.
Without any doubt, a great technological showcase where there was only room for the most cutting-edge infrastructures and equipment on the market, which shows the potential of SMAGUA as a reference show of the water industry.
