Helping water companies with disinfection

 
An UKWIR workshop was held at Cranfield University in June to disseminate the findings of the UKWIR supported PhD Identification of Treatment Conditions which Minimise DBP Formation, being carried out by Cranfield University’s Erin Losty.

 

The opportunity also was taken to have a number of closely related presentations that were followed by detailed discussions on the wider issues relating to the research.

Professor Cristina Villanueva Belmonte from ISGlobal at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health was the special guest.
Her presentation DBP Exposure and Health Effects from an Epidemiological Perspective reflected the Institute’s long-term commitment to the subject.

This was followed by Dr Tom Bond from the University of Surrey who gave the background to the Formation and Control of Disinfection By-products.

There were further academic presentations from Cranfield University researchers. Dr Chrissa Sfynia dealt with Minimisation of Regulated and Unregulated DBPs in Drinking Water at Anglian Water and Dr Emma Goslan looked at Natural DBPs in Scottish Water.
