Event 6th IWA International Conference on eco-Technologies for Wastewater Treatment (ecoSTP2023)

ecoSTP-23 aims to discuss the latest cutting-edge eco-technologies for a sustainable transition in wastewater treatment, reuse, and resource recovery, at urban and industrial scale, giving special attention to the efficient transfer of knowledge into practice. Building a more resilient future for water management needs a transdisciplinary and multi-domain examination, including socio-economic and governance aspects. ecoSTP23 will include hydro-social aspects and the multiple factors that currently frame water management.

The 4-day conference will include keynote presentations (one from academia, one from industry), daily plenary sessions with invited world-wide recognized speakers, platform and poster sessions, workshops in the afternoon to debate about open questions in our field, specialized courses and guided technical visits. ecoStP23 will host a diverse audience represented by researchers, technology providers, consulting engineering firms, and utilities.

Some of the main topics are: I) emerging technologies and processes, II) decentralized strategies, III) resource recovery and safe use, IV) digitalization, and V) economic, environmental and social footprint. The workshops will focus on I) full-scale experiences in the implementation of new ecotechnologies, II) the hydro-social cycle and the socio-political aspects and the human dimension of water, and III) wastewater-based epidemiology and the ethics of AI application in the water domain.


The conference will be organized by the LEQUiA research group from the University of Girona and the Catalan Institute for Water Research, two recognised institutions in the area of water research technologies.
