Water, Sewage & Effluent May June 2019 - Page 7

Sewage treatment in rural areas as well as the flush-out of pollutants from agricultural areas have also recently attracted attention. The management of wastes from agro-industries was first addressed in an international forum in the first International Symposium on Waste Management Problems in Agro-industries, held in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1989. The success of the event, with its high-quality contributions and the interest of participants from all over the world, established it as a regular IAWQ symposium. The purpose of AGRO 2019 is to provide a forum for discussion on as many aspects as possible within the context of the symposium title. The International Symposium on Waste Management Problems in Agro-industries has been held with IWA’s support since 1989 and the previous nine symposiums were organised under the same umbrella. It will be the 30th year of the symposium with the 10th AGRO 2019 this year. The symposium will address the increasing pace of complex environmental problems generated by a number of major industries such as textile, leather, pulp and paper, food, brewery and pesticide and other agro-industries. Topics to be covered include biological treatment of wastewaters and wastes, chemical treatment of wastewaters and wastes, nutrient removal and recovery, resources recovery and reuse, advanced treatment processes and innovative technological applications, modelling and design interaction, sludge stabilisation, utilisation and disposal and innovative water and waste management systems for agricultural areas.  Water Sewage & Effluent May/June 2019 The 10th International Water Association (IWA) International Symposium on Waste Management takes place in Rhodes, Greece, from 19 to 21 June 2019.
