SCI would like to invite you to Innovative Applications of Materials Chemistry in Water Treatment - Part 1: Removal of Contaminants from Drinking Water, their meeting being held jointly with the RSC which will take place on Wednesday 11 May 2016 at Burlington House in London.
Organised by SCI's Materials Chemistry Group and RSC's Water Science Forum and Applied Materials Chemistry Group, this conference is the first in a planned series. The aim of this event is to bring together problem holders and technology providers to discuss some of the more urgent problems in water and wastewater treatment where there are opportunities for innovative materials chemistry approaches. This first meeting will focus specifically on the challenges around the removal of pesticides (such as metaldehyde) and natural organic matter from drinking water.
The meeting will start with a keynote overview of the problem species, the limitations of existing treatments and the regulatory pressures, followed by sessions on natural organic matter/disinfection by-product removal, pesticide removal, and the problems and barriers in moving promising ideas through to market. There will also be a poster session. Ideally, suitable ideas for potentially transferable technologies can be included here as well as those directly targeting drinking water treatment.
The organising committee for this event looks forward to welcoming you on the day. For more information on the event, the programme and how to book, please follow the links below.
