13th IWA Specialized Conference on Small Water and Wastewater Systems together with the 5th IWA Specialized Conference on Resources-Oriented Sanitation.

14 Sep. 2016 - 16 Sep. 2016 • Athens, Greece

The Sanitary Engineering Laboratory of the National Technical University of Athens together with the Hellenic Water Association are delighted to host the 13th IWA Specialized Conference on Small Water and Wastewater Systems (SWWS) together with the 5th IWA Specialized Conference on Resources-Oriented Sanitation (ROS).

The event is a continuation of the previous successful Conferences of the 10th SWWS and 3rd ROS (Venice, Italy), the 11th SWWS (Harbin, China) and the 12th SWWS and 4th ROS (Muscat, Oman). The Conference will bring together researchers, engineers, water practitioners from academia, industry, water utilities, public authorities and administration to exchange know how and experiences. Within the Conference knowledge and expertise will be disseminated on innovative systems, technologies and processes which are/can be applied at small and decentralized regions for the management of water and wastewater. The whole water supply chain is considered from water abstraction to treated wastewater disposal and reuse. Furthermore, resource oriented sanitation as a route to sustainable and ecologically sound sanitation will be discussed.
