Green Technologies for Sustainable Water (GTSW) 2019

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Sai Gon, is the biggest city in the south of Vietnam. It was built on Sai Gon River and considered as the Pearl of the Orient during French colonial time. This city, with its essential French colonial character, has enough to draw your attention. The presence of colonial villas, wide avenues, and a lively café society will remind you of the days of French dominance. Over the past 10 years, Ho Chi Minh City has experienced a spectacular change in its cityscape. The once low-rise landscape of the city’s central area, district 1, is now marked with shining skyscrapers including high-rise apartments, international hotels, and companies. Ho Chi Minh City is also the cultural center and economic capital of the country. The city with its teeming metropolis mingled with the elegance of ancient culture is the best representation for the whole of Vietnam.

With its charm, Ho Chi Minh City is a wonderful and the most suitable place for organizing the second Green Technologies for Sustainable Water (GTSW 2019), as the first conference (GTSW 2017) was successfully organized in Ha Noi by the Vietnam-Japan University. This time, GTSW 2019 is hosted and organized by Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT), University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Institute for Environment and Resources (IER), Vietnam Japan University, CARE-RESCIF, Tianjin Chengjian University, and Tianjin Polytechnic University. GWST 2019 will also include the 4th International Membrane Bioreactor and Scientific Writing Workshops.

TransCon2019

Understanding and managing microbial biotransformation of environmental contaminants

TransCon2019 will take place this year from 28. April to 3. May, 2019 at the Congressi Stefano FransciniMonte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland.

Environmental microbial communities are key in detoxifying the environment from chemical contaminants by degrading them to less active substances, but we still lack a sufficiently mechanistic understanding of microbial biotransformation that is essential to progress in different fields of application, including water treatment and chemical risk assessment. Recently, a number of analytical tools have become available that enable scientists to study microbial biotransformation of contaminants and causal links between specific microorganisms and contaminant removal at the level of complex environmental communities and which thus have revolutionized the field. We expect that TransCon2019 will act as a catalyst in contaminant biotransformation research by gathering the leading scientists in the field to take stake of the progress and consolidate our understanding of the principles underlying contaminant biotransformation in natural and engineered environments.

The conference will be structured along four key topics (click on the topic’s title for more details):

  1. Frontiers in analytical and bioinformatics techniques to characterize contaminant biotransformation and microbial community characteristics
  2. Linking contaminant biotransformation to influencing factors and microbial community characteristics
  3. Adopting new knowledge for the design of next-generation biological water treatment systems
  4. Implications for prediction and regulatory assessment of biotransformation

For further information about the event including a full list of confirmed speakers and how to register, please visit the conference website here: https://transcon2019.ch

World Water Week – Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology prize winner.

Congratulations to Suhaib, who won the Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology prize for young rapporteur at World Water Week, where he participated as an assistant and a junior social rapporteur!

Suhaib M. Ibrahim is a passionate water Resources engineer from Sudan. He studied civil engineering at Khartoum University, Sudan, and then has had an experience of three years as an irrigation engineer, where he has worked with a wide range of agricultural, irrigation, and infrastructure projects different in scales. Later on, he decided to further his education and Currently He is doing a master degree in water resources engineering at Lund University, Sweden.

Coming from a technical background, he has developed a big fond for the social sciences, economy and humanitarian in general, trying to link it with the technical knowledge and combining them together when trying to attain sustainable integrated solution for Water arising issues. You can always reach him at Suhaib.eng@gmail.com , or Suhaib M. Ibrahim @ LinkedIn

Read his summary of the event and watch his winning interview below!

Hosted and organized by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), World Water Week is the leading annual global event for concretely addressing the planet’s water issues and related concerns of international development.

World Water Week 2017 was carried out under the theme “Water and Waste: Reduce and reuse”. It consisted of more than 200 sessions of different formats and covering a range of subjects.

There were three reporting teams to cover all those sessions; economical, environmental, and social (my team). I was a junior rapporteur and our amazing team was responsible for covering and reporting all the social-related sessions, it was a great effort. and it was the best opportunity for me with my technical background to have such diverse angle of ­sight, although it was really challenging, but I love new challenges. During the week we had the (daily splash) an opportunity for us to talk (on a live stream) about our impressions about the experience and what we would like to say as young water professionals in the water sector.

The point I wanted to outline the most was that we as engineering students we don’t really get exposed to all different aspects of water issues, that’s why always our solutions are technical focused, ignoring the socio- economic factors and lacking the holistic approach, and now I am trying to get a closer look to those aspects. with all the diversified background of people, expertise, politicians and international NGOs, the week was the perfect opportunity for that.
