Here’s what you missed at AquaConSoil 2019admin
The 15th International Conference on Sustainable Use and Management of Soil, Sediment and Water Resources was held from May 20 to 24 2019 in Antwerp, Belgium.
HAEMERS Technologies was represented by several of our engineers and team leaders.
Some of our latest abstracts were selected for the conference, and were presented during the week. One of them was displayed as a poster.
If you missed the event or would like to see the presentations again, all of them can be found on the links below.
The first presentation was given by Aurélien Vandekerckhove, Team Leader Business Development & Project Engineer. He talked about Ex Situ Thermal Desorption of highly-impacted Mercury soils in urban area.
During the session about advances in nanoremediation technologies, Aline Jordens, Team Leader Innovation and Project Engineer, talked about Combination of Remediation Technologies : In Situ Thermal Desorption and In Situ Immobilization. This was in collaboration with Dr. Sadjad Mohammadian (Faculty of Chemistry – Biofilm Centre, University of Duisburg-Essen).
Katia Pacella, Project Manager of the Gela Project presented a case study for the In Situ Treatment of unsaturated soils at the refinery of Gela (Italy).
Aline Jordens, also did a presentation on the laboratory tests and pilot conception at Biên Hòa Airbase, Vietnam. More than four decades after the Vietnam War ended (in 1975), the stability and bioaccumulation of dioxins still affect the inhabitants. Measures had to be taken to improve living conditions for residents, starting with the remediation of dioxin contaminated soil.
Jonathan de Grunne, Team Leader Project Management and Project Engineer, wrote an article about Thermal Conductive Heating: Comparison of power consumption to heat the soil between electrical resistance and gas fired burners. It was selected as a poster for AquaConSoil. You can see the poster and read the full article on the links below.
