Event ECSM2010: the Second European Conference on Sludge Management

This international scientific conference aims to bring together researchers and engineers from European universities, R&D laboratories, water agencies, governmental delegates, private companies involved in the management of sewage sludge.

As the environmental regulations became stricter, the production of sewage sludge increased continuously in the last decade.

This growth is particularly important in those countries, which joined the EU in the last two rounds of accession.
The new member states in Central and Eastern Europe have set out their National Strategies on Waste Water Treatment for 2010-2020 on the development of waste water treatment facilities to meet the European requirements on waste water treatment.

These requirements raise problems in this region.

As the disposal of waste without pre-treatment is prohibited, the importance of energy recovery and spreading on land have increased.
