The conference attendees will have the opportunity to disseminate, acknowledge and discuss of cutting edge research on the thematic of emerging water micropollutants, including the development of new sensors for in-situ monitoring, innovative devices for on-site detection or laboratory analysis, and their proper removal from water and wastewater by means of cost-effective techniques. Participants will include academic researchers, scientists and specialists from water processing and associated industries.
The main aim of this conference is to promote multi-disciplinary collaboration and transfer of knowledge among scientists, industry and official authorities concerning the problematic of emerging micropollutants.
The abstracts selected for either oral or poster presentation undergo a review process within the Scientific Commission of this conference.
LE STUDIUM, together with BRGM, the University of Orléans, CNRS, INRA and the cluster DREAM will support this international conference in the framework of PIVOTS project.
The PIVOTS project is a coordinated set of seven experimental and analytical platforms focused on environmental quality monitoring and sustainable management of natural resources (soil, subsurface, surface water, groundwater, sediment and air) within a context of global change (increased anthropogenic pressure and climate change).
The innovation through PIVOTS will be founded on an integrated approach based on excellent research by academic and industrial experts together at all stages of the value chain, from fundamental research to validation of products and services.
The platforms are identified as:
DECAP: Development of Environmental Sensors and Pollutants Removal Processes
PRIME: Remediation and Innovation in the Service of Environmental Metrology
O-ZNS: Observatory of transport in the Unsaturated Zone
PERMECA: Testing and Research Platform in Collaborative and Applied Environmental Mechanics
PESAT: Soil – Atmosphere exchanges in peat bogs
PESAA: Soil – Atmosphere exchanges in Agricultural soils
PRAT: Atmospheric Reactivity
The teams involved originate from BRGM (French Geological Survey), University of Orléans, CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research), Antea Group (consulting and engineering), DREAM (cluster of enterprises) and LE STUDIUM (Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies).
