  • Testimonials

    “I first came to this conference 15 years ago and have returned every year apart from two. In my job I have attended most international, European and North American conferences on sludge treatment and biosolids use and from my experience, this conference remains the best in its field. I find the conference to be well organized, held in a great and convenient venue, and have a consistently high technical level of papers based on latest and cutting edge technologies and ideas. I always look forward to coming back.”

    Bill Barber, Technical Director, Cambi

    “Aqua Enviro have once again managed to organise a conference that remains fresh, relevant and involving a wide range of professionals”

    Alan Whipps, Divisional Waste Sector Director, Pell Frischmann

    “I have been attending the Biosolids conference for the last 14 years. The possibility to meet the key technical people involved in the different aspects of the sludge treatment during 2 or 3 days, outside the conventional business environment, is invaluable. I have always found the presentations very interesting regarding the new technologies or feedback from site operations. I believe the Biosolids conference is the best technical event in Europe related to Sludge.”

    Bruno Bigot, Technical Director, Veolia Water Technologies
