5th IWA Resource Recovery Conference

Community Organizer:

Resource recovery from water has a long-standing history, but in light of carbon neutrality targets and sustainable development goals, it continues to be a prominent subject in the environmental field. As our understanding of the far-reaching environmental and economic implications expands, there arises a crucial challenge: reimagining the role of urban water management within the circular economy. This entails moving beyond the traditional focus on pollution mitigation and embracing a proactive stance towards sustainable development through the extraction of resources embedded in urban water.

The advancement of cutting-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence and advanced data analysis methods, has underscored the interdisciplinary nature of resource recovery research. In recent years, extensive efforts from both the water industry and the scientific community have been dedicated to developing innovative approaches that enable resource recovery while maintaining water quality standards and ensuring human satisfaction. Consequently, it is imperative to gather scientists and practitioners from across the world to share outstanding research and studies in this field.

We believe that this conference will facilitate global best practice exchange, foster advancements in fundamental science, showcase innovative research, and present successful case studies pertaining to resource recovery from water. By doing so, we aim to take significant strides towards a greener and more sustainable world while promoting academic dialogue and collaboration.
