Recovery of resources from domestic sewage management

SESSION B3 / 19 November 2020 / 11:45 - 13:00

Recovery of resources from domestic sewage management

Chair / Presidente: Francesco Fatone (IT)


Water is one of the key resources for the full implementation of the circular economy and the circular management of urban water is of particular importance. In this sense, waste water is the category of waste currently least exploited by the circular economy due to legislative, social barriers, economies of scale, standardisation and quality/competitiveness of recoverable resources; and also, maturity, reliability and technological diffusion. The session is an opportunity to present new experiences and to discuss different points of view with the aim to promote a wise water cycle.
