In 2020 it is 55 years ago that Department of Environmental Technology was established. That means that in the first week of June 2020, it is time again for our traditional conference, held every five years. The central theme of this unique conference will be focused on innovations, technologies, systems and concepts that can solve pollution issues as well as resource recovery challenges. For example, removing selenium or pharmaceuticals from wastewater, while recovering phosphate or selenium to close nutrient cycles.

We invite all environmental engineers worldwide to participate in our conference and give a scientific contribution by presenting their latest innovations and technologies. We believe environmental technologies are more needed than ever in a world with an ever-growing population that never seems to have enough wealth, putting a high burden on the environment.

In addition to our conference, we will also organize an alumni event for professionals graduated at ETE in Wageningen. Please have a look at the program on our website:

Together we can innovate faster and solve problems more effectively!
