17 - 20 June 2007
DECHEMA-House, Frankfurt am Main/Germany
5th IWA Specialised Conference on Assessment and Control of Micropollutants / Hazardous Substances in Water
In recent years several studies world-wide reported the identification of micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, biocides, fluorinated compounds or ingredients of personal care products in wastewater, surface water, sediments, soils, ground water and even drinking water. Regarding micropollutants the Micropol and Ecohazard Conference 2007 will encompass the currently emerging research in the fields of environmental chemistry, urban water management, intensive potable reuse technologies, ecotoxicology, human toxicology as well as regulations and measures to minimize hazards for biota and humans. Additionally, the emerging issue of nanotechnology related industrial applications and environmental implications will be a special focus of the conference.
The combination of the DECHEMA and IWA conference series Micropol and Ecohazard for the first time provides an international platform for drinking water and wastewater engineers, environmental chemists, water managers, hydrogeologists, ecotoxicologists and toxicologists to discuss the removal and the effects of micropollutants and hazardous substances in water systems.
We look forward to welcoming you in Frankfurt!
