In this Conference, wastewater treatment will be faced from a global approach, meaning that issues about new processes and technologies will be considered together with those related to emissions, economy and environmental analysis in an integrated perspective.

The Conference will serve as platform for exchange of experience and know-how among professionals from academia, industry and public administrations.
