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

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.

International IWA conference on sustainable solutions for small water and wastewater treatment systems

The International IWA conference on sustainable solutions for small water and wastewater treatment systems (S2small2017) will be held on October 22-26 in Nantes, France.

Small2017 co-organized by IMT Atlantique, GEPEA , IWA and ASTEE will be held in Nantes (city congress center). S2small2017 will address the latest advances in the field of water and wastewater management for small systems and decentralized approaches.

This joint conference will bring together the 14th IWA Specialized Conference on Small Water and Wastewater Systems (SWWS) together with the 6th IWA Specialized Conference on Resources-Oriented Sanitation (ROS) and the 3rd International Conference Terra Preta Sanitation & Decentralized Wastewater System.

The event is a continuation of the previous successful Conferences of the 11th SWWS (Harbin, China), the 12th SWWS and 4th ROS (Muscat, Oman), the 13th SWWS and 5th ROS (Athens, Greece) and the 2nd TPS (Goa, India).

S2small2017 is intended to:

  • Researcher specialized in environmental sciences
  • Engineers working in research and development
  • Stakeholders from the water sector (local community, water agencies etc.)
  • Entrepreneurs…

The scope of our conference is to go beyond the simple assumption that small water and wastewater systems are technically feasible and working to answer specific needs under many different configurations. The scope of our conference is to demonstrate that small water and wastewater systems represent part of the solution for the future of humanity, from theoretical concepts up to very applied cases study our conference will show that small is smart, small is beautiful, small is efficient, small is affordable, small is generous in other words small is the future!

Only small solutions for water and wastewater will enable to meet UN Sustainable Development Goal 6: « Ensure access to water and sanitation for all ». Only small water and wastewater solutions will help to increase water re-use, water recycle and resource recovery from wastewater. If you also believe that small water and wastewater systems represent tomorrow’s solutions do not hesitate anymore and come to S2small2017 to share your knowledge, meet the main actors in the field, strengthen your network in a wonderful city (surrounded by water) and in a region where small water solutions are really developed!

Register by 21st October to attend!

15th IWA World Conference on Anaerobic Digestion

The 15th IWA World Conference on Anaerobic Digestion (AD-15) is taking place om Beijing, China on 17th to 20th October 2017.

Anaerobic technology is widely adopted as a cost-effective way to waste (water) treatment, and has currently transferred from sole waste (water) treatment to integrated measure of waste-to-resource recovery, e.g. carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous, sulfur, biogas, biofuels, etc. It can be expected that the demand of technical innovation for fossil energy substitution, nutrients circulation, and efficient wastes management would increase continuously due to the global carbon emission reduction pressure. This indicated that we are standing at the turning point of reframing the future anaerobic technology towards a more sustainable world. Therefore, this conference will mainly target the most promising technologies that could significantly boost the development of AD globally, and will emphatically address cutting-edge and emerging technologies with high acceptability to industries during a three-day event.

The main topics for the conference include:

  • Anaerobic-Centric Technology for Industrial and Municipal Wastewater Treatment
  • Innovative/Emerging Anaerobic Technologies
  • Anaerobic Technology for Resource Recovery
  • Anaerobic Technology for Agricultural Waste Treatment
  • Low Cost Anaerobic Technology

To find out more and register your place, visit the conference website – http://ad15.medmeeting.org/en 

 

Key Date:

Registration deadline: 1st October 2017
