Nowelties Final Conference in Croatia
On 11 and 12 May, the final conference of the Nowelties project will be held in Croatia. During the meeting, the results of the research programme will be presented, as well as new achievements in the field of development and application of new materials and processes for wastewater treatment, with emphasis on technologies capable of controlling organic micropollutant pollution (OMP).
The conference will present some recent technological and methodological developments that offer a range of opportunities for the transition to smart water management and the adoption of treatment approaches capable of significantly improving OMP degradation, while presenting a low energy footprint and residual flow. Thus, advances in biological WW treatment; progress in advanced oxidation processes (AOP); new materials and application of nanotechnology in WW treatment and, finally, WW hybrid treatments will be discussed.
The ICRA is co-organiser of the conference, led by its Head of Water Quality, Mira Petrovic. In addition, the Institute's research staff will be featured in three of the Nowelties' Talks. Barbara Topolovec will speak on "Degradation and study of transformation products of per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) during plasma treatment"; Michele Ponzelli, will speak on "The Impact of Graphene Oxide on Methane Production Kinetics", and Nikoletta Tsiarta will speak on "Degradation of pharmaceuticals with heterogeneous catalytic ozonation-membrane filtration process using modified ceramic membranes".
The conference is not limited to Nowelties members, but is open to the wider scientific community, industry and end-users.
