Event description

Description

This free-to-attend, educational workshop for water resource management professionals and researchers, will take place on Thursday 17 October, at Jury's Inn, East Midlands Airport, Derby, UK. A small group of expert speakers from UK, Irish and European water utility and research organisations will share their experiences of using Chemcatcher® for environmental monitoring and risk assessment.


The event is geared towards

- Water resource managers in utilities

- National and local monitoring and regulatory bodies

- Researchers

- Environmental consultants

- Environmental managers in industry/public infrstructure

- Wastewater treatment plant operators

- Members of River Trusts and other NGO


Why attend?

Environmental quality standards (EQS) for some priority substances, posing a threat to aquatic systems, demand detection at extremely low levels, particularly in marine environments.

Chemcatcher® is a passive sampling device, capable of monitoring ultra-trace micropollutants in surface water, groundwater and coastal water. Passive sampling offers many advantages compared with traditional grab or spot sampling or biota.

Chemcatcher® can be used to detect both polar and non-polar organic pollutants, including PAHs, PCBs, PBDEs, pharmaceuticals and pesticides, as well as radionuclides, trace metals, metalloids and organometallic compounds.


What you'll learn

Key topics that will be covered include

- Sampling for metaldehyde and acid herbicides

- The experience of a water utility using Chemcatcher® to manage a problem pollutant

- Comparison of Chemcatcher® with other passive sampling devices

With the continued maturation of passive sampling, standardising Chemcatcher® calibrations and the transfer of methods of analysis into a commercial laboratory will also be on the agenda.

In addition, time will be devoted to a Q&A session and discussion, enabling participants to pose questions and share practical user tips and insights.


Further details of topics and speakers will be announced over the coming weeks.
