This Conference is dedicated to prof. Jan Oleszkiewicz for his contribution in nutrient removal and recovery on the IWA forum and water quality in Poland over the  last 25 years. In the introductory session, prof. Oleszkiewicz will give a special lecture on “Sustainable wastewater treatment compatible with new regulations”. The lecture will be followed by a presentation on “Transformations in wastewater management in Poland in the last 25 years – from the outsider to the leader”. The next session will comprise a series of keynote presentations on innovations in biological nutrient removal and recovery (North-American and European perspective) as well as case studies from large wastewater treatment plants in Eastern Europe (including Poznan WWTP).

Welcome message

On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees, we are pleased to invite you to the IWA Wastewater, Water and Resource Recovery (WWRR) 2021 Conference, which will be held at Poznan University of Technology. This time, the nutrient removal and recovery conference returns to Poland to honour prof. Jan Oleszkiewicz of the University of Manitoba for his long-standing contribution to the development of modern wastewater treatment technologies. The WWRR will provide an excellent space where many distinguished scientists and practitioners from all over the world will share their knowledge and experience. Even though the conference is focused on nutrients, new challenges will also be addressed, including energy efficient technologies, removal of emerging contaminants, resource recovery from sludge and wastewater, and water safety systems. Poznan is the capital of Wielkopolska region in western part of Poland. It is a historical city, cradle of the Polish statehood, and nowadays a modern academic and cultural center. We hope you will join us to present your work, learn from colleagues, make new friends and professional contacts and, of course, enjoy a wonderful spring time in Poland. We are looking forward to meeting you in Poznan in May 2021!
Prof. Jacek Mąkinia, Chair of the Scientific Committee, Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland
