Sign-up for this webinar, which is taking place at 12pm BST on 8 July 2020
Given the high power consumption of water infrastructure, utilities are continuously exploring ways to improve the energy performance of their existing processes or integrate new technologies to save power and money. This webinar will explore the overall strategy for the UK Water Industry in achieving net-zero carbon by 2030 and expand with a technical case study on the recovery of energy from waste.
Two speakers from Mott MacDonald, one of the two international consultancies advising on Water UK’s carbon zero plan, will share insights and take questions on the following:
- UK Water sector net-zero carbon aspirations and roadmap to 2030
- Water sector carbon/energy hotspots and required action
- Sludge management – how it fits to the net-zero carbon agenda and energy reduction
- Sludge technologies – current trends and future possibilities to maximise resource recovery
This webinar is free to watch, book your place via this website to join the webinar.
