Submit an Abstract for Poster Presentation

Share your best practice, ground-breaking technology or pioneering research at Europe’s premier event for biosolids and bioresource professionals and practitioners.

The investment requirements resulting from The Industrial Emissions Directive sit high on the immediate priority list of the Bioresources sector. Delivery will strain the supply chain, but we must remain focused too on the longer term where biosolids seem inevitably moving towards advanced thermal conversion.

The landbank is and will become less and less available due to constraints arising from nitrogen and phosphorus application, PFAS and other emerging contaminants.

In any of the possible future scenarios anaerobic digestion looks set to stay, as such advances in the process and supporting assets that deliver more energy, greater throughout and less biosolids are of great interest.

And where does the Circular Economy fit into this mix?

This year’s European Biosolids & Bioresources Conference, as ever, focuses upon the pressing issues facing our industry and practical examples of how the industry is and can meet these challenges.

We invite oral and poster presentations addressing the following hot topics:

2024 Themes

  • Measuring & mitigating process emissions – methane and more
  • Landbank challenges – PFAS, nitrogen and phosphorus, antimicrobial resistance
  • Maximising anaerobic digestion capacity, performance and the value of biogas
  • Advanced Thermal Conversion (ATC) processes – char and non char processes
  • Advances in thickening, dewatering and liquor treatment technologies
  • Realising circular economy opportunities – leveraging the value of technologies (e.g. cellulose, hydrogen)

Technology Suppliers

As this is a technical conference, we encourage talks that share operational experiences. If you are a technology supplier and would like to be considered for an oral presentation, your abstract should include details such as site specifics and performance data. Ideally, the abstract should be presented by an appropriate client.

he event is packed with highly valuable presentations delivered by experts in the field from all backgrounds: operations, science & research, engineering, consultancy, regulation, suppliers, etc.

The event is targeted well so it is big enough to have everyone in the room, but small enough to allow for people to network effortlesly.

This even is the highlight of the year to meet with good old friends and catch up.”

Principal Engineer, Cambi

“Cutting edge information on global trends, regulations and technologies. Great networking potential. I loved how well organized the conference was and easy to get acclimated.”
