BioFest 2017 - Biosolids: Beyond a Movement

BioFest at BioCycle REFOR17 on Oct 15-16th in Portland, Oregon

What can I expect to take away from BioFest 2017?

Northwest Biosolids & BioCycle REFOR17 are partnering to bring you two shows at one central location at discounted rates. Register for BioFest on our conference registration page by September 18 to save $70.  

One of our major focal points of this year's BioFest - Biosolids: Beyond a Movement - is bringing you the latest developments in biosolids program management, packaged in a highly customized program that maximizes your time at our event in both learning and networking opportunities.  You’ll learn how biosolids have become key ingredients for building sustainable communities, how custom blends are changing the biosolids recycling landscape and what you need to know in developing lasting community partnerships.  We’re also changing up our Sunday to start earlier, offering a robust session and roundtable on biosolids regulations.  Sunday evening will be capped off with our traditional evening banquet to celebrate 30 years of unearthing sustainable solutions.  BioFest would not be complete without our fun run/walk, so bring some comfortable soles and cross the bridge to our Monday evening gathering directly across the river from the hotel.  

You also have the opportunity to participate in the 17th Annual BioCycle Conference on Renewable Energy From Organics Recycling at a reduced rate.

10/15 - 10/16  BioFest Conference

Biofest 2016BioFest 2016: Ordinary People - Extraordinary Things   Blaine, WA

In 2016, NW Biosolids shed some light and started a conversation around the significance and extraordinary role biosolids play in the greater scheme of things. Ground breaking research projects answered questions that were asked by us in the biosolids field and by our communities. 

Featured sessions examined social media & biosolids possibilities and how to weigh the plethora of considerations when choosing a biosolids program management plan, application methods and technology options. Click here to view the presentations.
