AgroGo Málaga Forum: Sustainable water solutions

Reading time: 2

On May 9, we participated in the event “Solutions for a sustainable water mix: the potential of regenerated and desalinated waters in coastal areas“, within the framework of the AgroGo Málaga Forum. This initiative, organized by Caixabank, brought together leading experts and professionals from the sector to discuss the challenges and opportunities related to water management in coastal areas.

The event was moderated by Antonia Lorenzo, our CEO at BIOAZUL, who guided the debate on the fundamental role that regenerated and desalinated waters play in the construction of a sustainable water mix.

Among the featured speakers were:

  • Rafael Casielles, Senior R&D Project Manager at BIOAZUL, who shared his experience and knowledge about the latest innovations in the field of water management.
  • Ricardo Ruiz, Water Commissioner for the Mediterranean Basins, offered an institutional perspective on the challenges and opportunities in water management in coastal areas.
  • Enrique Gutiérrez, Manager of CETAQUA Andalucía, answered key questions about the practical application of innovative solutions in water management.
  • José Campos, President of the Central Board of Users of the South of Guaro, and Rafael Sánchez de Puerta Díaz, General Director of DCOOP, contributed their experience and vision from the agricultural and business sectors, respectively.

At BIOAZUL, as experts in water management, we highlight the potential of regenerated and desalinated water to address the water scarcity crisis. In our contribution, we highlight the importance of using innovative technologies to promote the sustainable use of these alternative water sources. Furthermore, we highlight the need for adequate hydrological planning and the development of efficient management practices to ensure the long-term viability and sustainability of these water resources.

In this context, we present the results of several innovative projects. For example, the BONEX project is developing a tool to carry out a nutrient balance and calculate the exact dosage of fertilizers, which allows optimizing the use of resources and reducing the risk of eutrophication. On the other hand, the P2GREEN project aims to automate the addition of fertilizers through the use of soil sensors, ensuring precise and efficient application of nutrients.

Furthermore, at BIOAZUL we are collaborating in the Sustainable Axarquía Operational Group, where the studies carried out on crops such as avocado and mango are being extended to other crops, such as pitaya and passion fruit.

The event was a space for exchanging knowledge and experiences, where participants could learn about the latest trends and innovative solutions in water management, with the common objective of promoting a more efficient and sustainable use of this vital resource.
