The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange the latest developments regarding holistic sludge management. It will give possibilities to examine and discuss the different challenges connected to resource recovery through treatment and handling of wastewater.

The conference covers sludge management and resource recovery from wastewaters within a broad holistic system perspective. It includes energy recovery and quality assurance of sludge as a prerequisite for enabling sludge to be recycled to farmland as well as different upstream or downstream processes and procedures for recycling of nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen in more refined ways.

We also want to share knowledge, practices and ideas for the future directions of process development of wastewater handling and the sludge treatment is one of the key issues here. The aim of the conference is to take a major step forward by addressing  all aspects of sludge management.
