The 3rd International Seminar on Environmental Simulation and Pollution Control Held

The 3rd International Seminar on Environmental Simulation and Pollution Control and the 8th Symposium on Environmental Simulation and Pollution Control was held in Beijing, China, from November 7 to 8. It was co-hosted by the State Key Joint Laboratory of Environmental Simulation and Pollution Control and the Chinese Society for Environmental Sciences. SOE Prof. Huang Xia, Director of the State Key Joint Laboratory of Environmental Simulation and Pollution Control presided over the seminar.

Prof. Bruce E. Logan from the Pennsylvania State University, Academician of American Academy of Engineering, Associate Editor of ES&T, Prof. Armistead G. Russell from the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, SOE Prof. Zhou Jizhong, member of Thousand Talents Program, and other well-known experts were invited to attend this seminar. A total of 8 special lectures were given by these experts, covering the areas of pollution treatment and new energy development, air pollution detection and simulation, the applications of molecular biology in eco-environment, the progress and challenges of anaerobic treatment technology, hydrometerology and water monitoring. Around 300 experts and scholars from more than 50 universities and research institutes in 9 countries attended this seminar. The participants had a warm discussion upon the following themes: 1) air pollution control; 2) new technologies of environmental monitoring; 3) transformation, control mechanism and technologies of toxic persistent pollutants; 4) new theories and technologies of water pollution control; 5) environmental pollution and human health; 6) theories and technologies of drinking water purification; 7) improvement and ecological restoration of water environment; 8) greenhouse gas reduction and global climate; 9) control, planning and management of regional environmental pollution; 10) migration and transformation principles of pollutants in multi-media and multi-interface environment. They also introduced their own research progress. According to the scientificity and novelty of the topics and the live performances, 9 Student Encouragement Awards were awarded at the seminar.
