As populations in cities grow, urban water management challenges increase. At this roundtable event, researchers plus municipal and industry leaders from Atlanta and Toulouse discuss today’s challenges and innovations in wastewater management, highlighting a shift from disposal to energy creation and resource recovery.
By developing sophisticated wastewater and sludge treatment programs that are efficient and environmentally friendly, engineers and scientists are transforming wastewater treatment plants into energy recovery facilities.
Atlanta and Toulouse have had strong ties since their former mayors Maynard Jackson and Pierre Baudis united the two cities in 1974, forming the Atlanta Toulouse Sister Cities Committee. Georgia Tech continues in this spirit of admiration and collaboration with dynamic partnerships in research, innovation and academics.
