Project partner NSVA hosted the final project event on the 26th of November, a Replication Workshop for municipalities and other stakeholders was held on-site at the RecoLab. It was combined with an online satellite event hosted by project partner LeAF, enabling participants to watch a livestream of the event. Over 60 people from different countries in Europe participated in the workshop, to learn and discuss about replication of source separated wastewater systems and the resource recovery approach of Run4Life. First the managers of the four project demonstration sites briefly presented their main facts and experiences, as well as a representative of the Jenfelder Au site in Hamburg, Germany. Moderator Mats Johansson of Ecoloop actively involved the participants in expressing their thoughts about the different applied concepts. In the breaks it was possible to join a guided tour of the RecoLab by Hamse Kjerstadius .
The second part of the workshop consisted of a moderated panel debate, during which the five demo-site representatives answered questions about the challenges and opportunities related to building and operating their demo-sites, focusing on financial and regulatory aspects. The end of the panel debate focused on aspects that are important in replication of the concepts in other cities and engaged the workshop participants to share their own developments in setting up a circular sanitation project.
