Miguel Ángel Ayllón COO of Idrica has joined the jury of experts for these awards, whose aim is to protect the planet by broadcasting the best examples of circular economy strategies in the water sector. Idrica will also sponsor the Circular Economy Water Project of the Year 2020.

Participants will have the opportunity to attend different activities organized by Idrica in the city.
