Welcome to Sludgetech 2017 in London

We are excited to announce that The IWA Specialist Conference on Sludge Management: SludgeTech 2017 will be taking place in London from the 9th–13th July 2017.

We feel privileged to be working with the International Water Association to host this event which aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry. Bringing together leading experts to share knowledge and insight into the challenges and opportunities surrounding sewage sludge, this conference will showcase the latest research and innovation taking place across the world and inspire the next generation to seek a career in sludge. We will build on the success of SludgeTech 2015 and 2016, where an emphasis was placed on quality papers delivered in a collaborative, dynamic and fun environment.
