“Overwhelming response” to new wastewater and sewage expo, say organisers

Momentum is said to be building for the Wastewater & Sewage Treatment Expo 2017, with the number of wastewater and sewage professionals attending the event at the NEC in Birmingham on 5-6 July having surpassed 400 thanks to its partnership with UK AD & Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2017.

Wastewater & Sewage Treatment Expo will focus on commercial advantages arising from deregulation in the water industry and opportunities in resource recovery, and will bring together wastewater treatment professionals from across the industry to debate sector-specific challenges and solutions. Visitors from across the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, paper, chemical, and numerous other wastewater producing sectors are coming to meet the major water companies and other treatment providers from the UK and Europe offering solutions for procuring wastewater treatment and extracting the value these ‘wastes’ contain.

High-profile attendees at the show will include water companies Anglian Water, Severn Trent Water, Southern Water, and Thames Water, who join Atkins, BP, Ecotricity, ENGIE, Scania, Veolia, Walkers Snacks, water2business and other companies from across the wastewater and sewage treatment value chain. There will also be representation from the Department for International Trade, the Environment Agency, HMRC, and the Welsh Government.

The show will be an opportunity for wastewater, sewage and effluent treatment professionals to innovate, collaborate, and communicate with other industry leaders. Delegates will gain a better understanding of the commercial opportunities arising from the Water 2020 and Open Water market initiatives and stay at the cutting edge of technological developments. Exhibitors will showcase the latest technical innovations to improve the productivity, efficiency and quality of wastewater and sewage treatment.

Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive of We Are Orchard, the event organisers, said:

“We are delighted with the overwhelming response from the wastewater and sewage treatment industry to this new and exciting tradeshow. It complements UK AD & Biogas and World Biogas Expo exceedingly well, offering visitors access to the full range of treatment options for what we have to date seen as wastes. There’s a great range of interesting topics that will be discussed at the show, and it will be the best event to attend to find the most innovative solutions for extracting value from wastewater and sewage.”
