This two-day conference will address all the aspects of an important pharmaceutical utility that is all too often taken for granted. Water is used as a heat transfer medium, as a cleaning agent, as a solvent and reaction medium, as a diluent and an excipient. The costs of abstraction, treatment, purification and generation of all purities of water are rising. It is increasingly important that our water is managed as a scarce and valuable resource.

Speakers from the regulatory authorities, academia, pharmaceutical manufacturers, consultants and contractors will trace the water supply chain from source to use within the pharmaceutical industry and eventual discharge back to the environment.

The conference considers sources of water and security of supply. Generation and distribution of USP / EU Purified Water (PW) and USP / EU Water For Injection (WFI) as well as non-compendial systems will be discussed. Speakers will share practical experiences of design and installation as well as validation and operation of PW and WFI systems. Options for water recycle and reuse as well as effluent treatment will be presented with specific examples from active pharmaceutical ingredient and biopharmaceutical manufacture.

Held in the 2005 European City of Culture, Cork, this conference is an essential overview for anyone involved in the sustainable management of water resources for pharmaceutical manufacture.
