Press Release for International Conference on Green Technologies for Sustainable Water 2017

PRESS RELEASE

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

ON GREEN TECHNOLOGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE WATER

(GTSW 2017)

 

 

Time, venue: October 13 – 16, 2017 at Pan Pacific Hotel, Ba Dinh, Hanoi

 

International conference on Green Technology for Sustainable Water – GTSW 2017 will take place from October 13 to October 16 at Pan Pacific Hotel, Ba Dinh, Hanoi. The conference was jointly organized by 05 stakeholders: University of Technology in Australia, University of Wollongong (Australia), Tianjin Polytechnic University (China), Vietnam Japan University and University of Science under Vietnam National University, Hanoi.

Against the backdrop of increasing population of Vietnam, resources are gradually depleted and Vietnam is strongly affected by climate change, the development of environment-friendly technologies (green technologies) in the field of water resource management is of paramount importance.

The first International conference on Green Technology for Sustainable Water - GTSW2017 to be held in Vietnam has attracted keen interest from the research community, state management agencies, environmentalists, experts and the media. The conference will host 150 prestigious national and international scientists. In addition to the 18 keynote presentations, the conference will feature 85 oral reports and 30 poster presentations.

Keynote speakers of the conference include international experts on green technologies for water treatment, such as Prof.Dr. Roger Benaim (French Institute of Fluid Separation and Filtering), Prof.Dr. Ramaraj Boopathy (Nicholl State University, USA); Prof.  Jega Jegatheesan (RMIT University, Australia); Yamamoto Kazuo (University of Tokyo, Japan), Prof.  Jun Nakajima (Vietnam Japan University, VNUHN); Duujong Lee (National Taiwan University, China), Prof.  Ashok Pandey (Center for Bioprocessing and Innovation India) and Prof.  Xiaochang C. Wang (Xi'an University of Architecture and Technology, China).

At the conference, experts and scientists will present the latest scientific and technological innovations on water supply, wastewater treatment and reuse of water; resource restoration from wastewater; water resource management; water treatment by Nano technology, etc.

Green technology is the major theme throughout the conference. Participants of the conference will have the opportunity to discuss advanced technologies and techniques such as oil production from seawater and wastewater using microalga Chlorococcum sp . RAP-13; integrated water recycling and reclamation systems for Asian countries; anaerobic digestion technology for food waste to reclaim wastewater; biological treatment of wastewater from shrimp ponds by SBR technique; application of nanomaterials in water supply and wastewater treatment.

In addition, the conference will also feature a major in membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology that addresses the application potentials of this technology in the treatment of wastewater and water supply in the world and in Vietnam.

The conference will also welcome many leaders from ministries, international organizations, training institutions, research institutes, and enterprises nationwide sharing interest in environmental issues in general and green technologies for Sustainable Water in particular.
