In that sense, a special session on Accelerating the adoption of Algae-integrated Wastewater Reclamation, Recovery and Reuse of Water, Energy and Algae will be part of the conference programme. It will take place on Thursday 20 June, from 14h45 to 17h30 (PT Time).


In this workshop, experienced experts will present and discuss wastewater reclamation that includes the recovery and reuse of:

(1) recycled water,

(2) renewable energy,

(3) algae biosolids.

The case studies will illustrate the advantages of algae-based wastewater systems over more conventional electro-mechanical wastewater reclamation facilities. The case studies will also quantify costs (capital, operational, and life cycle), energy intensity, GHG emissions, degree of circularity, and Sustainability Development Goal 6 compatibility and advancement. The range of choice for reusing recycled water, renewable energy, and algal biosolids is constrained by the quality of each co-product.

The goal is to examine the obstacles that have inhibited more widespread adoption of sustainability quality and goals and end by brainstorming how best to optimise and accelerate dissemination and deployment of Algae-based Wastewater Reclamation with Reuse of Water, Energy and Algae.
