6th IWA Specialist Conference on Oxidation Technologies for Water and Wastewater Treatment (AOP6)
This conference is one of the very successful International Conference Series and serves to discuss and promote Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) in the field of water, wastewater, groundwater and potable water.
AOPs are progressing rapidly all over the world as they have proved to be successful in meeting increas ing ly stringent global regulations as well as protecting public health and the environment. Thus AOPs are strong alternatives to conventional treatment techniques in many applications for complete elimination of recalcitrant compounds in water and to improve the biodegradation of wastewaters by partial oxidation.
Continuous basic and applied R&D already helped to improve the effort-benefit ratio of AOP in many applications as well as exploring and consolidating new fields of application and concepts of AOPs. The conference will bring together both experts from research and development as well as from industry. The discussion about novel developments of models, measurements, reactors and processes together with experience in recent full-scale applications including operational problems should promote the further progress of AOP.
All contributions on AOP-processes and technologies such as ozone based, UV based, photocata lysis, iron based, electrochemical processes and pressurized oxidation and plasma discharge technologies or their combination with other techno logies like in biological and membrane technologies related to the following areas are welcome.
* Water treatment and wastewater treatment
Treatment of industrial, municipal, hospital and landfill leachate wastewater, water reuse, groundwater, drinking and surface water, disinfection, partial oxidation
* Sludge treatment
Improved sludge degradation, sedimentation, dewatering
* Soil treatment
Remediation, multiphase reactors, leaching of contaminants
* Treatment of emerging contaminants
Treatment of trace pollutants (e.g. PPCPs) and recalcitrant substances
Generation of radicals, design and operation of AOP-systems, modelling, reaction kinetics, mass-transfer, reactor engineering
* Innovations and applications
Combination of AOPs with other physical and (bio)chemical processes, process improvement, full scale technical studies, novel applications and processes, health care protection
