BIOSOLIDS AND BIOWASTES – THE CIWEM PRESIDENT’S VIEW

Robin Green, CIWEM President

(free)

The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) is an
independent professional body representing over 12,000 managers, and other professionals,
in all sectors, who are responsible for the stewardship of environmental assets.
Biosolids and biowastes are an inevitable consequence of human life and especially of
urban living where the production of organic residuals is unavoidably magnified by the
concentration of people. In nature nutrients are cycled from the soil to plants and animals
and back to the soil. Plants fix atmospheric carbon dioxide and release oxygen; decaying
organic matter feeds the soil to feed the plants and it also feeds the biomass in the soil and
improves its ability to filter contaminants out of water as it percolates to underground
reserves and to watercourses.

Biosolids and biowastes exemplify many of the technical and communication issues we
face today. It is a field of continuous scientific and technological development. CIWEM
welcomes opportunities for sharing information and for Continuing Professional
Development; as President I wish the conference every success and continued
usefulness.
