Among the environmental challenges addressed by the Conference, are:

* The climate challenge, in order to mitigate the effects of climate change.
* The challenge of the circular economy that, in the supply and sanitation systems, try to find solutions to recover or reduce the consumption of water and reagents 
* And, finally, those aspects focused on energy and its relationship with water.
 
Manuel Abellán has participated in the session of Solutions for obtaining energy in water treatment with a presentation entitled “LIFE-DRY4GAS: Waste water sludge solar DRYing FOR energy recovery through gasification GAS”, in which he has presented the project and the prototype installed in the WWTP of San Javier (Murcia).
