WWT Wastewater Conference 2019

29th January 2019

The seventh annual WWT Wastewater Conference & Exhibition is the UK’s largest single-day wastewater event with four distinct programmes and a shared innovation zone running in parallel.

You will find a showcase of case studies, thought leadership, and innovative strategies designed to tackle all the current and future wastewater challenges under one roof.

What’s new for 2019?

  • An expansion from 3 to 4 dedicated agenda streams
  • International speaker case studies from the USA and Finland
  • New agenda formats including interactive debates, table discussions and snap polls

Your four content streams for 2019 are:

  • Infrastructure – take a deep dive into how new-build infrastructure projects are developing while exploring high-value opportunities emanating from BIM and new construction tech.
  • Networks– how will you optimise the existing system to meet a growing demand at an affordable price? See what new tech you can apply to evolve aging assets into smart sewers. This session will be introduced and chaired by our Operations Director, Martyn Hopkinson.
  • Treatment – See how you can apply advance treatment processes and scale up to meet bigger demands; bringing the success story of Chicago to the UK.
  • Bioresources – get ready for wastewater, resource recovery and energy leaders uniting to discuss opportunities being created by new tech and how the 2020 opening sludge market is evolving one year ahead of launch.
