HORIBA Scientific will be speaking at the upcoming Pittcon 2015 symposium entitled, 'Using analytical solutions to target emerging issues in drinking water safety.'
Adam Gilmore, PhD, will be discussing: 'Optical monitoring and optimization of wastewater recycling operations with simultaneous fluorescence and absorbance measurements.'
The symposium's description is:
'Using analytical solutions to target emerging issues in drinking water safety' will focus on emerging issues concerning drinking water health and safety. The symposium will convey how analytical instrumentation is critical in monitoring and protecting public health in drinking water treatment. The symposium’s speakers include chemists, engineers, and public health officials that are on the forefront in analytical method development for unregulated contaminants, conducting emergency response, and optimizing drinking water treatment. The applications being used to investigate these issues include luminescence, fluorescence, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, drinking water testing, NELAC certification, and microbial assays. The topics will be of broad interest to scientists, chemists and consumers around the country and particularly to residents of Louisiana.'
Other speakers include:
Here is the working list of the symposium:
- Lauren Weinrich: Method development using luminescence for biodegradable organic carbon measurements in drinking water
- Ruth Marfil Vega, PhD: Evaluation of emerging and unregulated drinking water contaminants and the impact of operations at American Water facilities
- Adam Gilmore, PhD: Optical monitoring and optimization of wastewater recycling operations with simultaneous fluorescence and absorbance measurements
- Andrew Whelton, PhD: Emerging Issues Regarding the Impact of Polymer Pipes, Coatings, and Liners on Water Quality
- Jonathan “Jake” Causey, P.E: Brain-eating amoeba: Louisiana's emergency response to the recent public health threat by Naegleria Fowleri
