Removal of priority pollutants from aqueous waste and environmental streams
A seminar on the "Removal of priority pollutants from aqueous waste and environmental streams" will be held at the Environment Institute of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), in Ispra, Italy, on 22 June 1996.
The seminar is part of a series of "Blue seminars", being organized by the JRC to examine questions related to water. The results of the seminars will be used by the Commission's environment-water research/industry task force, which has a coordinating role within Community RTD programmes to focus research on priority areas within the area of environment and water.
The seminar will give details of recent developments in treating polluted aqueous streams which contain priority pollutants such as heavy metals and pesticides. Examples of developments to be presented include:
- Advanced oxidation processes for the removal of atrazine;
- Ion exchange and sorption with inorganic materials;
- Photocatalysis to remove phenolic substances;
- New activated carbons capable of removing pollutants.
