Resource-oriented sanitation (ROS) goes beyond ensuring public hygiene and protecting the environment. This sanitation approach is based on the concepts of circular economy by recovering water, nutrients, organic raw materials, and energy.

The Specialist Group on Resource-Oriented Sanitation (SG ROS) of the International Water Association (IWA) and the Process Engineering Department of the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) invite you to a webinar series on recent developments of ROS. 

Starting with an overview of ROS activities in the IWA specialist group, experts from various countries report on the developments in their region. All presentations address drivers, barriers and main stakeholders of ROS.
