The Water Industry provides a robust platform from which to build as the UK economy aims to Grow Back Greener. Exploring the art of the possible, at or close to market technologies, and current barriers – this essential event will be of interest to water company managers in business planning, innovation, commercialisation and market development roles – as well as researchers, innovators and operators active in this field.
Required to improve the quality of water bodies through increasingly tight discharge consents under the Water Industry National Environment Programme (WINEP), many £billion are currently being invested in resource removal from wastewater – particularly of phosphorus. Where they are retained (eg. as struvite or chemical phosphate precipitates in biosolids), then these resources already contribute to a circular bioeconomy. But wastewater and bioresources are reservoirs and enablers for a wide range of other resource recovery options – the key questions being: What are those options, and how close are they to commercial reality in the UK market? Understanding how Circular Economy approaches can contribute to 2030 net zero carbon commitments is also essential.
While biomethane and phosphorus have led the resource recovery agenda to date, the recovery of hydrogen, ammonia, cellulose, alginates, VFAs, and vivianite have also been demonstrated at scale, and potential uses for pyrolysis and gasification residues continue to attract interest. This one day conference will explore a number of aspects relevant to resource recovery – from innovative techniques and commercial opportunities to policy and regulatory frameworks.
