During the trade fair, the various projects completed in Costa Rica were presented to more than 300 stakeholders in the green building industry and members of the Green Building Council of America.

The opening of the Green Building congress also marked the start of the Green Expo at which Veos Water was one of the exhibitors. The programme touched upon key issues such as LEED v4, affordable housing, andurban ecological and environmental planning.

Veos technology can generate drinking water saving of up to 80% while reducing the impact on the environment.
