Charting the Future of Biosolids Management: Forum Findings on Trends and Drivers
01/26/2011 - 2:00 - 3:45 pm EST
The National Biosolids Partnership (NBP), in conjunction with WEF, held a Future of Biosolids Management Forum on December 1-2, 2010 in Old Town Alexandria, VA. The purpose of this facilitated forum was to Identify trends in technology, operations, and management; regulatory and public policy drivers; research needs; and professional and training needs over the next three, five, and ten years for biosolids. A panel of nearly 50 invited biosolids experts from a broad spectrum of disciplines and geographical areas were provided with a background document that referenced past, current and future biosolids management activities.
This webinar, hosted by the National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) will bring together plant operators, utility management, consulting engineering, equipment/process vendors, regulators, and academics interested in the forum’s findings about current and future trends in biosolids management practices. A report is expected by late-January 2011. Join NBP for its next “no charge” quarterly webcasts/webinars based on critical biosolids technical topics.
