ROOM

Room 27

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-44]

Sludge was traditionally considered a waste in the water sector. But now technology has turned it into a valuable resource from wastewater that can be used to generate electricity, recover nutrients, and reduce landfill disposal. This session will present case studies where technology and innovation were used for sludge management in ways that lowered costs, built community resilience, and benefited human health and the environment. The session will explore how viewing sludge as a resource has led to more integrated approaches for water and waste management.
