Event description

The Central Southern branch invite you to an evening seminar showcasing the research being undertaken by the Water & Environmental Engineering Research Group (WEEG) at Southampton University.

Speakers will highlight the innovations being made in water and environmental engineering and science, focusing on nutrient and energy recovery and lessons learnt from nature.

The first session will provide two outlines of new developments. Dr Yongqiang Liu and Dr Yue Zhang will overview novel water and wastewater treatments with nutrient recovery that are being developed in the department.

Followed by Professor Sonia Heaven who will describe FP7 ALL-GAS: a case study of energy-positive algal wastewater treatment and the evolution of this highly successful project led by FCC Aqualia, Spain.

Session two will look at Beaver dams, river restoration and the Water Framework Directive. Dr Gerald Muller will explore the concept of 'natural' rivers and the effect of some of nature's greatest ecosystem engineers in the context of the WFD. He will expand this into the potential for low-head hydropower.

This free event is open to CIWEM members and non-members. It will be of interest to those looking for innovation in the sector; for those with responsibility for new directions; and for members and students seeking to expand their careers.

Doors open at 5:30pm with plenty of opportunities for networking before the talk starts at 6:00pm.
