    ABSTRACT DEADLINE: 5th International Conference on Ecotechnologies for Wastewater Treatment (ecoSTP2020)

    All day

    Following four successful IWA Specialized International Conferences on ‘Ecotechnologies for Wastewater Treatment (ecoSTP)’ in Spain (2012), Italy (2014), the United Kingdom (2016), and London, Ontario, Canada (2018), we are pleased to announce the 5th ecoSTP conference (IWA ecoSTP2020) to be held in Milan (Italy).   High anthropic pressure is impairing water, impacting the environment and limiting its potential uses, so innovation is the key for a new paradigm in wastewater treatment and management, as for: a) energy and resource recovery, favouring a new water economy. b) potential for multiple-use and reuse of the water resource, such as improvement of recreational surface water uses, promotion of indirect potable reuse, requalification of agricultural reserves, revitalization of waterways reconnecting people. The conference will feature plenary and parallel sessions, as well as workshops and short courses for students, postdocs and interested researchers.   The conference is organized by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Politecnico di Milano and will be supported by Water Utilities, Companies in the Water Sector, Local Authorities and other stakeholders.


    • Impact minimization and prevention
    • Water multiple uses and resource recovery
    • Preservation of human and ecosystem health through risk-based decision support for treatment selection
    • Monitoring and control strategies for optimization and scale-up

    Agilent Sustainability Symposium: Emerging Techniques for Water Quality Testing

    08:30 -15:00
    Department of Chemistry, Chernoff Hall - CHE202, 90 Bader Lane, Kingston, ON, K7L 2S8

    The Agilent team would like to invite you to this free Environmental Sustainability Symposium. This event will focus on water analysis, since a high level of drinking water quality is essential, whether the source is bottled water or the tap. In addition, the environment is easily damaged by contaminants from industry in wastewater or improper disposal practices and requires continuous monitoring of these pollutants. Join our experts for these in-depth discussion on the most advanced water quality monitoring solutions to ensure continual protection of human health.
