The 2nd Swedish Conference on Sewage Sludge Biochar

After a successful 1st Swedish Conference on Sewage Sludge Biochar in 2022 in Malmö with 120 participants from 14 countries, we now invite you for a second conference in Malmö in October 2024. The conference brings together researchers, companies and other stakeholders regarding sludge pyrolysis and biochar.

The conference will be held at Studio, very close to Malmö Central Station.

Themes such as full- and pilot-scale installations, sludge biochar characterisation, phosphorus availability, removal of micropollutants, energy and carbon balances, carbon sequestration, different applications for sludge biochars, regulations and business models will be raised during the conference.
