Persistent, Mobile and Toxic (PMT) Substances: A challenge for analytical chemistry and water quality control

21-22 January 2020, Leipzig, Germany

     

Persistent and (very polar) mobile substances (PM substances) are a potential threat to water quality. Neither biodegradation nor sorption removes such compounds from water. This is particularly critical if the substances are also toxic (PMT substances). This workshop wants to foster the scientific development in order to improve our abilities to evaluate the significance of PM (PMT) substances for water quality, wastewater reuse and drinking water supply. We cordially invite researchers, practitioners and further stakeholders involved in water quality monitoring, and water treatment and control from national and EU level to share their knowledge on PM(T) substances, elaborate how to close knowledge gaps and how the load of PM(T) substances can be reduced.

The proposed workshop wants to foster the scientific development in order to improve our abilities to evaluate the significance of PM (PMT) substances for water quality, wastewater reuse and drinking water supply.

Topics of Interest:

  • Recent analytical developments and unexplored options for highly polar compounds
  • Ongoing monitoring and screening activities for PM compounds
  • Toxicity and ecotoxicity of PM compounds
  • Assessment of persistence, mobility and precursors of PM substances
  • Consequences for (waste) water treatment and wastewater reuse

Abstract Submission: expected until 30 November 2019

Registration: now open
