Human activities generate elements that can have a considerable impact on the environment even as traces amount. The chemical composition of the elements, their speciation and their size have a critical influence on the way they interact with the environment.
Recently, Hg, Si, As and Cl emissions have been targeted due to their potential or proven impacts, not only on the environment - and therefore human health - but also on asset durability and product quality. As a result, various economic sectors have been focusing on improving the safe management of these trace pollutants. The oil & gas, mining, material recycling, soil remediation and water treatment sectors, along with consultancies, research communities and analytical facilities, have set about understanding the underlying phenomena and developing new methods for the detection, characterization and mitigation of these elements.
The purpose of this Rencontre Scientifique is to provide a platform for scientific and technical dialogue, promoting and sharing ideas relating to the management of Hg, Si, As and Cl as pollutants, and analyzing potential removal solutions, supported by a multidisciplinary panel of environmental solution specialists.
This international event provides an opportunity to access the latest developments in the following areas:
