From 26 to 29 June 2023, the 6th IWA International Conference on eco-Technologies for Wastewater Treatment (ecoSTP23) will be held in Girona, Spain. The International Water Association (IWA) is the leading network and global knowledge hub for water professionals.

ecoSTP23 aims to discuss the latest cutting-edge eco-technologies for a sustainable transition in wastewater treatment, reuse, and resource recovery, at urban and industrial scale, giving special attention to the efficient transfer of knowledge into practice.

The 4-day conference will include keynote presentations (one from academia, one from industry), daily plenary sessions with invited world-wide recognized speakers, platform and poster sessions, workshops in the afternoon to debate about open questions in our field, specialized courses and guided technical visits. ecoStP23 will host a diverse audience represented by researchers, technology providers, consulting engineering firms, and utilities.

Some of the main topics are: I) emerging technologies and processes, II) decentralized strategies, III) resource recovery and safe use, IV) digitalization, and V) economic, environmental and social footprint. The workshops will focus on I) full-scale experiences in the implementation of new ecotechnologies, II) the hydro-social cycle and the socio-political aspects and the human dimension of water, and III) wastewater-based epidemiology and the ethics of AI application in the water domain.
