Marina Arnaldos is Cetaqua Barcelona’s new General Manager

– The goal of this new management team is to position Cetaqua Barcelona as an essential territorial agent for driving innovative, market-applicable solutions that guarantee efficient, sustainable water management.

This afternoon, Cetaqua Barcelona’s Board of Trustees, the centre’s governing body formed by Aigües de Barcelona, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech (UPC) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), met to officially appoint Marina Arnaldos as Cetaqua Barcelona’s new General Manager.

Marina Arnaldos holds a degree in Industrial Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de València (Valencia, Spain) and a PhD in Environmental Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago, USA). She also holds an MBA from ESADE Business School (Barcelona, Spain). In the course of her career, she has held a number of innovation-related positions in the water industry, concerned specifically with the development and optimisation of water treatment technologies. Leaving her position as Growth and Solutions Manager at Cetaqua, she takes over management of the Barcelona-based centre with the vision of “turning Cetaqua into an essential territorial agent” and the mission of driving innovative, market-applicable solutions that guarantee efficiency and sustainability in water management.

Marina takes on the goal of transforming the centre into an essential player for addressing the current climate emergency scenario and the unprecedented social and economic context, engaging with public and private organisations, and ensuring that solutions are proposed that meet society’s current and future challenges in order to maintain Cetaqua’s position as a knowledge leader in the water industry.

We would like to thank Carlos Montero for his work during the last 8 years as general manager of the Cetaqua centres; he will continue to maintain close links with the group through his new position as strategic project manager in Veolia España’s Business Continuity Department.

Digitalisation, decarbonisation and water reuse, Cetaqua’s main lines of action

More than 15 years of experience in the execution of RDI projects have positioned Cetaqua as a centre of excellence and an international benchmark in the application of scientific knowledge to the water and environment industry. With the new management team, it is expected to address social, environmental and economic challenges, based on digitalisation, decarbonisation and reclamation as main lines of action.

The event was attended by Manuel Cermerón and Fernando Tallarico, as representatives of Agbar; Daniel Crespo, from the UPC; and Carlos Closa, as representative of the CSIC.
