Micropollutants Conference 2023

Deadline For Submitting Abstracts: Wednesday 1 February, 5 pm

Conference: Tuesday 28 March, Manchester, 10 am - 4.30 pm

Following the success of the first British Water Micropollutants Conference in 2022, the second Micropollutants Conference will expand the discussion on challenges posed by micropollutants to the water industry.

We are focussing on three areas:

• Legal frameworks – recent changes in the European legal framework have targeted micropollutants in terms of environmental quality standards, surveillance and, lately, a roadmap of obligations for quaternary treatment. These changes will be the pillars of an emerging economy addressing micropollutants and the objective of this theme is to inform the supply chain with concise and relevant regulatory news.

• Bioresources – biosolids can no longer be deemed waste and must be recognised as assets. Recovery of physical resources and generation of energy are classic examples of yields offered by bioresources. Nonetheless, implications posed by micropollutants accumulated in sludge are obstacles to innovation in this area and must be considered during the development of solutions.

• Commercial – as the regulatory regime continues to target micropollutants, the market responds with novel solutions. The commercial theme of the conference will provide a platform for technology providers to explain and showcase their achievements in this emerging industry.
