War on Waste – Webinar

September 17, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm AEST

WIOA TALKS are available to members only – if you are not a WIOA member sign up now

WIOA invites members to join us for a technical webinar on the War on Waste – Biosolids and residuals beneficial reuse

In this month’s webinar we will talk about the challenges water utilities face in dealing with biosolids and water treatment residuals. Historically these have been considered a waste product of treatment with a significant cost impost due to storage, handling and disposal. However, this need not be to case. In our “War on Waste” webinar this month our speakers will cover local, national and international perspectives on the beneficial reuse of biosolids and residuals. They will talk about development of national and international quality standards for biosolids, as well as how to work with state regulatory frameworks to promote positive uses and avoid landfilling.

WIOA Talks Program:

  1. What’s happening in the world of biosolids? (Peter Tolsher, North East Water)
  2. Is landfill the only option for water treatment residuals? (Sallyanne Bartlett, WaterQPlus; Kate Smith, Veolia)
  3. Kempsey biosolids reuse project (Barry Young, Kempsey Shire Council)

Registration is available to the first 100 members to register and attendees will be contacted with the login instructions, in the lead-up to the event.

The webinar will use the Adobe Connect platform and may require an installation process.
