This course will address the regulatory framework of the water sector, establishing the regulatory hierarchy, the European Water Charter and the guidelines of a sanctioning dossier. As an example, the current Bylaw on Management and Efficient Use in the city of Madrid, an example of water regulation and control, will be analyzed.

The uses and demand of water, as well as the costs and energy derived from its integral cycle and its heating in DHW generation, will be accurately analyzed. Within the hydro-efficiency management, measures for water management and efficient water use will be analyzed and developed, including the various water efficiency techniques, from plumbing devices at terminal points of sanitary equipment to other techniques for rainwater harvesting.

Furthermore, the processes associated with waste management will be studied in depth, establishing the associated regulatory framework and management strategies. The main techniques for energy recovery and waste recovery will be analyzed.

The innovative ZERO-WASTE initiative will be discussed in detail, where under the objective of the circular economy model, waste management will be redesigned, enhancing waste prevention and valuation actions in order to reduce the raw materials extracted. During the module, the guidelines and actions that an organization can apply in terms of Zero Waste will be analyzed.

By completing and passing the evaluations of this program, the student will obtain a solid knowledge of the rules and regulations to be applied in relation to environmental and energy management in organizations. A complete, high-intensity program, which will allow incorporating into practice the most updated knowledge in this field of work.
