Closing the loop on biological waste - testing innovative methods
This visit will look into possible solutions to the world’s growing waste problems. To close the loop and take advantage of the nutrients in the waste, we look at a fly larvae-composting system where waste is converted into proteins. We also visit a pilot plant for testing different techniques for anaerobic digestion.
Tickets can be purchased when registering to the World Water Week.

14:00 Visit the first treatment plant
The first treatment plant is a protein recovery plant where fly
larvae is used for processing latrine waste as well as solid
waste where up to 40% of the incoming material is converted
into fly larvae, then to be used as high quality animal feed.

15:15 Coffee and walk to digestion plant at Swedish Institute of
Agricultural and Environmental Engineering
15:45 Visit the second treatment plant
The second pilot treatment plant is a mobile anaerobic
digester, situated in a shipping container. This unique
treatment unit enables advanced testing of a large variety of
substrates and process alternatives in a very scalable size.
