IWA Conference on Algal Technologies and Stabilization Ponds for Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery

1st - 2nd July 2019. Valladolid, Spain

This event represents a joint conference, bringing together the 2nd IWA Conference on Algal Technologies for Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery and the 12th IWA Specialist Group Conference in Wastewater Pond Technology. These two international conferences will allow scientists, algaeneers and practitioners to exchange the latest knowledge on the application of photosynthetic microorganisms for wastewater treatment and resource recovery, covering traditional opened ponds systems and the use of photobioreactors. Wastewater treatment using photosynthetic microorganisms can benefit from the knowledge coming from the use of algae to produce biofuels, food supplements or green pharmaceuticals and of microbial physiology of purple photosynthetic bacteria. Likewise, wastewater as a cheap source of nutrients and inorganic carbon is promising for the mass production of algae-based commodities. For example, microalgae based treatment systems in developing and tropical countries may reduce wastewater treatment costs via the recovery of its inherent resources, while providing effective sanitation services.
