Event description

Description

As populations in cities grow, urban water management challenges increase. Millions of gallons of wastewater are discharged daily, and “Smart Water,” is a key component of every Smart City’s plan for a sustainable future. Engineers and scientists are addressing increasing infrastructure demands by developing wastewater and sludge treatment programs that are sophisticated, efficient, and environmentally-friendly. Wastewater treatment plants are transforming into energy recovery facilities, linking wastewater management to energy management.

At this roundtable, researchers, municipal, and industry leaders from Atlanta and Toulouse, will discuss today’s challenges and innovations in wastewater management, highlighting the shift from disposal to energy creation and resource recovery.

These events are co-organized by the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France to the United States, and Georgia Tech-Lorraine, in partnership with the city of Toulouse and Veolia.
