DERAC at the first fully online conference of SETAC Europe!

The organizing committee of the SETAC Europe 30th Annual Meeting, constrained by the COVID-19 global crisis, as made the tour de force to replace the face-to-face meeting in Dublin by a fully online event!

You shouldn’t miss this opportunity to follow our platform presentation “Recommendations to derive quality standards for chemical pollutants in reclaimed water intended for reuse in agricultural irrigation” presented by Pr Lian Lundy in Session 4.15 – Wastewater and Sludge Reuse in Circular Economy. It will review the existing pertinent EU legislation in terms of identifying the need for Quality Standard for contaminants in reclaimed water and also evaluate opportunities to link in with the existing EU EQS derivation methodology. It will also identify the main research needs and present the most recent activities launched under the NORMAN network for water reuse and policy support.

All presentations will be available on demand at any time and interaction between presenters and participants will be enabled during the meeting session discussion on Wednesday 6 May, 13:45-14:30 UTC.
