During the conference, a site visit was organized at the Wastewater Treatment Plant of the Sewerage Board of Larnaka. The Wastewater Treatment Plant covers the Larnaka district and uses the sewage for producing two end-products for re-use. The treated water is given back to farmers, for irrigation purposes for free, and remaining  solids are compacted into pellets and used as a fertiliser. First the Plant was presented by Mr Haris Papanikolaou (Laboratory Technician) and Ms Ioanna Ioannidou (Chemical Engineer), illustrating the purpose of the infrastructure and its importance to the community. After that the participants toured the premises and the tanks, where the different stages of the treatment take place with interesting information about the process.
