Workshop on Wastewater Reuse Applications and Contaminants

Workshop on Wastewater Reuse Applications and Contaminants of Emerging Concern
Limassol (CY), 13. - 14. September 2012

More than 70 participants attended this international workshop, held jointly by the NORMAN Network, COST Action TD0803 (DARE) and the NIREAS-International Water Research Center. The workshop offered a great opportunity to the scientists of the NORMAN network and the DARE Cost Action to discuss key issues of common interest about wastewater reuse practices and the existing challenges associated with the presence of contaminants of emerging concern.

These include their fate and behaviour while in the environment, their potential uptake by plants and crops, the effects that these contaminants may induce in the environment, the evolution and release of antibiotic resistance, and the technologies that are able to remove such contaminants from wastewater.

The main messages and conclusions are summarised in a WORKSHOP REPORT. The oral presentations can be downloaded as pdf files (see below).
