Dioxin 2018

The 38th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants & 10th International PCB Workshop: 

DIOXIN 2018 

This year, the conference will take place between 26th – 31st August, 2018 in Kraków, Poland.  

Dioxin 2018 highly promotes the involvement of industry in fighting POP pollution and interaction of industry representatives with potential and existing customers and clients in all areas of investigation: analytical, regulatory, exposure assessment, and toxicological aspects relating to Persistent Organic Pollutants. Therefore, the message of the DIOXIN 2018 is: no boundaries in POPs pollution, research and control.

Further information about the conference, including a full list of plenary speakers can be found on the main conference website

 

Register before 30th June 2018 and check the conference website for full details on registration fees.

Canadian Ecotoxicity Workshop 2018


 

The Canadian Ecotoxicity Workshop 2018 takes place this year from 30th September – 3rd October at the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver, BC.

The three day workshop aims to progress the field of ecotoxicology by reflecting the work done on the preservation of our natural ecosystems and mitigate the harmful effects of pollutants.  It will provide the opportunity to share information on current and emerging topics of regional, national and international importance related to contaminants in ecosystems, both aquatic and terrestrial. It covers a range of sessions which are fully listed on the conference website here.

 

Abstracts must be submitted before 6th July 2018

The Geochemistry and Mineralogy of Contaminated Environments 2018

The Geochemistry and Mineralogy of Contaminated Environments

6th June, Burlington House, London

Image result for the-geochemistry-and-mineralogy-of-contaminated-environments

 

The aim of this meeting is to explore how understanding the geochemistry and mineralogy of the natural environment can help us to predict the fate and behaviour of contaminants, and mitigate their impacts.

The deadline for standard registration closes on 18th May. Please register using the RSC booking portal and find further information about the meeting including confirmed speakers and contact details on our Conference and Events database.

Congratulations to the winner of NOSA Early Career Scientist Aerosologist Award 2018

We are delighted to announce the winner of the NOSA Early Career Scientist Aerosologist Award 2018. Jana Johansson (pictured below) from Stockholm University has been awarded the prize for the best Ph.D. thesis of 2017 by the Nordic Society for Aerosol Research (NOSA).

“I have a MSc in Chemistry and a PhD in Applied Environmental Science, both from Stockholm University. I defended my thesis in June of 2017. Its title is ‘Sources, transport and fate of perfluoroalkyl acids in the atmosphere’. Perfluoroalkyl acids are persistent anthropogenic chemicals present in humans, biota and in the abiotic environment globally. Several potential sources have been proposed to explain the presence of perfluoroalkyl alkyl acids in the atmosphere. My research is focused on increasing our understanding of their relative importance on the global scale. One of the main findings presented in my thesis is that perfluoroalkyl acids are strongly enriched in sea spray aerosol. Consequently, the global oceans may act as an important source of perfluoroalkyl acids to the atmosphere. As a post doc, I am now setting up studies to test this hypothesis as well as studies aimed at determining the importance of sea spray as a vector for ocean-to-atmosphere transport of other anthropogenic and biogenic substances.”

“During my time as a PhD student I noticed that there is quite a big divide between contaminant scientists and aerosol scientists. As a result, our view of the atmospheric transport of pollutants is sometimes overly simplistic. To address some of the questions which have remained unanswered in my field during the last decade, I collaborated with scientists from the atmospheric aerosol unit of the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (Stockholm University). Receiving recognition from the aerosol community has encouraged me to continue this work as part of my post doc”, says Jana Johansson.

Congratulations to Jana on this outstanding achievement. We wish her all the best with her future research on sea spray aerosols.
