On 27 January 2022, the event “From wastewater treatment plants to biofactories: the potential of water in the circular economy” will take place, organised by Cetaqua and FEUGA in the framework of the innovation projects Ecoval Sudoe and WALNUT.

This meeting aims to explore the concept of biofactories and present the technical advances of both projects. In addition, the social, legal, and market barriers for the valorisation of high added value products for agriculture and industry, such as sludge or biofertilisers obtained from waste flows from urban water treatment plants, will be discussed.

Here you can consult the program of the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with presentations and round tables to reflect on the essential value of water in the transition to a circular economy. The main parts of the day are:

  • Part I: past, present, and future of biofactories.
  • Part II: legislative barriers/transfer for the implementation of biofactories
  • Part III: end-users of biofactory by-products.

The event will be broadcast by Zoom with English translation. The capacity of the virtual event is limited. Registration will close when the maximum number of registrations is reached. Don’t miss it, register here!
