Resource Recovery Tour

Waste water is a rich source of numerous materials, like nutrients and fibres. With resources running out on a global scale and an ever increasing focus on a circular economy, water is an interesting source of valuable resources. The point is: how to recover them on an efficient and cost effective way?

In the Northern Netherlands, several processes to recover various nutrients and fibers like cellulose have been successfully developed and implemented. In the Resource Recovery Tour you will see and learn about those technologies and processes, you will meet the bright minds behind the technologies involved and you will take home great ideas and practical insights to improve the resource recovery in your company.
Join one of the tours and meet the people, learn about technologies and get opportunities to solve your water related issues, or the issues that one of your customers has.

At the end of the afternoon, all participants of all the tours will meet in Sneek, where we will start a network reception on a nice boat. Grap this chance to see some of the beautiful surroundings of Sneek and the Sneek lake. After this ‘after-party’ you will be returned to the WTC by coach.
