Sustainable biosolids management in a circular economy


Duration: 01h30

Thermal hydrolysis case studies from leading utilities: interactive webinar 

This webinar, hosted by IWA in collaboration with Cambi, focuses on sustainable biosolids management practices for a circular economy. During a 90-minute interactive session, our panel of specialists will share their knowledge on advanced anaerobic digestion with thermal hydrolysis pre-treatment. You will have the opportunity to engage with:

  • Bill Barber, IWA Specialist and Technical Director at Cambi, who will provide a short introduction to thermal hydrolysis
  • Christopher Peot, Director of Resource Recovery at DC Water, who will introduce us to Bloom Soil, sharing his experience with the use of biosolids as fertiliser in the US
  • Ester Rus, Principal Engineer at Jacobs, who will illustrate how thermal hydrolysis facilitates a centralised approach to biosolids management, with a case study from the UK

The session will be moderated by Dr Richard Tsang, IWA Global Specialist on Sludge Management and Senior Vice President at CDM Smith.

The webinar is free and open for everyone. Feel free to prepare by accessing the reading materials below.

Find out more on the IWA event page. Upon registration, you can submit questions to the panelists in advance.

We look forward to engaging with you soon.
