VIRTUAL EVENT: Delivering on net zero carbon in wastewater management

29 September 2020,

We are pleased to announce the programme for the Delivering Net Zero Carbon in Wastewater Management virtual event.

At around five million tonnes (CO2-e), the UK water industry is the nation’s fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG), representing just under 1% of the country’s total emissions. Recognising their significant contribution to the nation’s carbon footprint, the UK water industry in 2019 announced a target of net zero emissions by 2030 – twenty years ahead of the Government’s commitment for the country as a whole.

Delivering on this commitment will require a root-and-branch review of capital and operational practices – with carbon impacts factored into all future decision making.  This is additionally challenging when set against a context of increasing discharge constraints requiring more intensive wastewater treatment.

This event will explore how future carbon-efficient wastewater management approaches could take advantage of emerging technologies to become net carbon sinks.
