Energetic, environmental and economic challenges (ES1202)

ecoSTP 2016 International IWA Conference

Monday, June 27, 2016 to Thursday, June 30, 2016


After two very successful editions of the IWA Specialized International Conference “Ecotechnologies for Wastewater Treatment (ecoSTP)” in Spain in 2012 and Italy in 2014,  the 3rd edition will be taken place  27-30 Jun 2016  in Cambridge, UK, coordinated by Dr Ana Soares from Cranfield University, UK.


ecoSTP has launched a novel holistic approach to the “new conceived wastewater treatment plants” and has become the second largest IWA conference in 2014. The Water_2020 network is consolidating this approach by bringing together European leading water professionals to integrate the technological, environmental, energetic, economic and social factors of the wastewater treatment plants.


The objective of the conference is to provide a common place for experts including engineers, scientists, economists and policy makers, to present their most recent technological and scientific outcomes.

The EcoSTP16 web site has all the key information and will be updated frequently.

Please note that the deadline for abstract submission has been extended until 15 of December 2015
