WWT launches combined wastewater conference

Experts from water service companies, engineering contractors, equipment manufacturers and academia will meet in January to address the financial, operational and technical challenges facing the sector at the WWT Wastewater 2016 event.

An ageing network prone to sewer flooding, transfer of private pumping stations, emphasis on Totex in AMP6 and compliance with the Water Framework Directive means the water industry must find more creative ways to manage wastewater assets.

Combined with the ever-increasing need for low energy treatment and recovery, these issues are driving the industry’s appetite for innovative, cost-effective solutions to meet the economic, environmental and operational challenges facing the sector.

Experts from water service companies, engineering contractors, equipment manufacturers and academia will meet in January to address the financial, operational and technical challenges facing the sector at the WWT Wastewater 2016 event.

For the first time, the 4th annual WWT Wastewater Infrastructure and Networks conference will run parallel to a new WWT Wastewater Treatment Conference, meaning attendees can choose their focus for the day. A comprehensive innovation showcase will complement the programme sessions.  

The infrastructure and networks conference agenda will address network resilience and innovation, transfer of private pumping stations, environmental performance and investment. The conference will be chaired by Martyn Hopkinson, Chairman of Future Water Association and speakers include: David Elliott, Director of strategy and new markets, Wessex Water; Steve Wilson, Director of Wastewater Services, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water; Mark Thompson, Head of integrated planning for wastewater assets, Southern Water and more.

The treatment programme will address the efficiency of treatment works, nutrient removal and recovery, sludge treatment and recycling, and the commercialisation of wastewater bi-products. The day will be chaired by Paul Horton, Chief executive officer of Future Water Association and expert speakers include: Neil Corrigall, Head of strategy, Severn Trent Water; Dave Holthöfer, Head of waste water treatment, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water; Nick Mills, Wastewater innovation manager, Thames Water and more.

The event takes place on January 28th at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. A pre-conference networking dinner will take place at the Arden Hotel on January 27th.
