This conference is the 3rd in a series and aims to bring together leading EU and UK experts in the field of Priority Substances listed in Annex X of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The event will discuss issues associated with Priority Substance compliance, where they come from, and where best to control them.
The cost of treating substances is going to be excessive to meet the proposed environmental quality standard limits from the Directive. This conference aims to demonstrate what other approaches are sustainable from cost, environmental, and social perspectives.
The conference will disseminate which priority pollutants are of significant concern from the Regulator and Water Industry and need to be managed. It will provide an overview of the range of options using source control and examples of how these have been achieved. In particular it will consider the most effective control strategy for Priority Substances in terms of cost and sustainability.
Our speakers will address the questions below:
Which of the priority pollutants are of significant concern and need to be managed?
Where are these pollutants coming from and in what proportions?
What is the optimum means to come into compliance with the standards?
How do we understand what the citizen wants & will pay for?
