- Identify regulatory obstacles to nutrient recycling/reuse from waste-derived algae / micro-algae, i.e. which either have had ‘waste’ status or which are grown using waste inputs
- Outline potential valorisation routes, current status of development and market potential, important risk questions (contaminants, safety)
- Propose possible approaches to address key regulatory questions identified.
Water treatment operations can set a prime example of circular economy in action, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12 for responsible consumption and production. What has traditionally been considered as waste – sewage water and sludge – carry great potential for value capture for instance in terms of nutrients and energy. Join this webinar to hear some examples of how to enhance the circularity performance of your water treatment operations, backed by science.
