On 9 April 2015, UNESCO-IHE organizes the 1st international seminar on Algal Technologies for Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery.
Recent advances in algal technology, mostly developed for biofuel production, open up possibilities for application to wastewater treatment and resource recovery. At the same time, in the developing world increasing volumes of wastewater go untreated, partly because available technologies are either costly, technologically too complicated or demanding too much land.
Algal technologies have the potential to be used for energy efficient, compact wastewater treatment in which by-products are generated for cost-recovery.
Presentations during the seminar will address the potential and challenges of innovative technologies.
This seminar will be live streamed. Follow the programme online via this link.
