Welcome to ecoSTP18 Conference
Ecotechnologies for Wastewater Treatment
June 25 to 27, 2018. Western University, London, Ontario, Canada

Following three successful IWA Specialized International Conferences on "Ecotechnologies for Wastewater Treatment (ecoSTP)" in Spain (2012), Italy (2014) and the United Kingdom (2016), we are pleased to announce the 4th ecoSTP conference (IWA ecoSTP18) to be held in London, Ontario, Canada.

The goal of this conference is to facilitate the efficient transfer of knowledge into practice - removing roadblocks between scientific discoveries and commercial implementation, essentially bridging the "valley-of-death" in the innovation cycle.

In cooperation with Western University and Water Environment Federation (WEF), the IWA ecoSTP18 Conference aims to attract a global audience with representation by technology providers, consulting engineering firms, academia, and utilities.

IWA ecoSTP18 will promote discussion and exchange of ideas through a combination of pre-conference workshops and network-centered conference sessions. A number of panels coordinated by visionary leaders will discuss the role of transformative technologies for wastewater treatment.

On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees, we are delighted to invite you to the 4th IWA Specialized International Conference "Ecotechnologies for Wastewater Treatment (IWA ecoSTP18)" to be held in London, Ontario, Canada during June, 2018.

Dr. Ted Mao (Chair), Dr. Domenico Santoro (Co-Chair), Dr. George Nakhla (Co-Chair)
