Many of the Country’s most progressive residuals and biosolids programs will be in the spotlight at Residuals and Biosolids 2011--Adapting Residuals Management to a Changing Climate in Sacramento from May 22rd-25th, where you can participate in a number of workshops and sessions that take advantage of experience and in-depth knowledge on topics including energy recovery from residuals and biosolids, gasification, co-digestion of residuals and nutrient recovery. As a matter of fact, three of the four pre-conference workshops and more than one third of the ninety technical presentations will focus on recovering valuable energy and nutrient resources from biosolids and residuals.
We're definitely expecting robust dialogue about residuals resource recovery programs and the best use of residuals for a more sustainable wastewater treatment operation. The paradigm shift underway not only in our profession, but also among the general public as communities are beginning to recognize, accept, and indeed actively support programs that harness the value of residuals to support energy-producing programs and nutrient recovery for a more balanced approach to residuals and biosolids uses instead of the old disposal mantra.
At this meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to learn the very latest technical information plus find out what's driving the change to residuals resource recovery in the communities we serve. This is a very exciting time in our profession with lots of truly green thinking going on, so I hope you will join us!
