WETPOL is an important global conference bringing together wetland scientists, engineers and practitioners working on the use of wetlands for water quality improvement as well as the potential roles of wetlands in a future more sustainable circular economy and resource-oriented setting.
The conference programme will include recent advances in the following areas:
- Biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nutrients
- Carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions
- Wetland plants ecophysiology and invasiveness
- Constructed wetlands for the treatment of domestic, industrial and other types of wastewater
- Nutrient removal in constructed wetlands in agricultural landscapes
- Cold-climate, arid-climate and warm-climate constructed wetlands
- Intensified constructed wetlands
- Microbial electrochemical wetlands for wastewater treatments
- Evaporative willow systems
- Sludge treatment red beds
- Phosphorus recovery from constructed wetlands
- Paludiculture, i.e. the cultivation of wetland plants as wet crops on rewetted peatlands
- Other related topics.
