Municipal utilities are stewards of the environment, but water and wastewater treatment is an energy intensive activity. Finding ways to reduce energy consumption can make huge differences in the costs of providing water and wastewater treatment, but also have immense environmental impacts, especially as we look to meet carbon emission targets.

This webinar will demonstrate ways utilities have reduced their energy consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions. This is your chance to hear from utilities who are leading the country in this field.

Speakers will discuss the regulation of biosolids in Canada, especially in light of emerging pathogens and contaminants. Our panel will then look at how different provinces approach biosolids management and how we can work to protect the environment, while also utilizing this important resource.
