A leading Midlands waste water treatment specialist is to deliver waste treatment advice to Europe's sewage and environmental clean up experts.
Neil Willoughby of Rugeley-based ARM Limited will present a key paper on the benefits of reedbeds as a natural and environmentally sound way of treating sewage to the 10th European Biosolids Conference to be held in Wakefield next month.
Neil Willoughby will be presenting his paper jointly with Danish environmental consultant Steen Nielson.
The two will argue that reedbeds, as well as being a natural way of treating waste water from sewage treatment plants and industrial and agricultural processes, are also far more energy efficient and produce waste which can be recycled for crop fertilisation.
The Bio-solids conference - which is attended by experts from many countries - covers all aspects of sewage treatment and food and farm waste.
It is backed by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management, the European Water Association, the UK Water Industry Research Group and the Chartered Institution of Waste Management.
Mr Willoughby said, "I am pleased to be presenting on a subject in which ARM is an expert company.
"Our natural solutions to the tricky issues of waste treatment have huge environmental advantages over mechanical methods more commonly employed."
ARM, provides major reed bed installations for natural pollution, waste water and sewage treatment at waterworks and industrial sites all over the UK.
