This event is no longer available for registration.
The aim of the Conference is to bring together leading experts in the field of priority substances listed in Annex X of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The event will discuss potential issues associated with the implementation of the Directive 2013/39/EC relating to Priority Substances in the field of water policy. It will also help to disseminate information on the development and validation of new test methods for monitoring priority pollutants.
The cost of the sampling and analysis is going to be excessive to meet the proposed environmental quality standard limits associated with the new Directive. This meeting will aim to establish what is cost-effectively feasible.
The event will offer the opportunity for debate on what is a critical priority within the resource efficient Europe roadmap agenda.
The event will showcase emerging innovation and research in the are of priority substance management which will include projects recently awarded development grants through the SBRI call in Scotland.
