Location Online

Due to unforseen unavailability from the speaker, the webinar has been postponed amd will now take place on February 7th. 

On October 26th, the European Commission released the Proposal for a revised Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive.

To understand more the proposal and its potential implication, we have invited Michel Sponar, Deputy Head of Unit at the European Commission, Directorate General for the Environment.

He will give us a general introduction of the directive but also present the last revision with its new impacts, new criteria/obligation for all concerned water actors and to exchange on the ideas and concepts behind this proposal.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A, so make sure you sign up so you can ask all the questions you have!
