Event/Product information

The extensive experience in combining the use of anaerobic, heterotrophic and photosynthetic microorganisms in waste stabilization pond systems constitute an important asset for the development of a modern model for wastewater treatment systems with emphasis in resource efficiency systems. Such approach will open up new possibilities for sustainable and more bio-based economic growth, including the recovery and reuse of valuable resources embedded in wastewater steams. These features are important to encourage both a circular economy and a green economy and to move wastewater treatment away from being considered a drain on resources, to one where it can make a positive economic contribution.

This conference will cover aspects of innovative pond technology applications for improving wastewater treatment systems, and in particular we will have presentations covering the following topics:
