1. The 15th Latin American Congress on Organic Geochemistry: Scientific Interdisciplinarity in Benefit of Organic Geochemistry will be held in Salvador, State of Bahia, Brazil on November 4-7, 2018. Learn more | 2018 Brochure

The Latin-American Congress on Organic Geochemistry is held by the Latin American Association of Organic Geochemistry (ALAGO), which is a community of students and professionals who work with Academy, research and industry, in various organic geochemistry areas in Latin American. For 30 years, the congress constitutes a successful forum for discussion of the state-of-the-art advances in Organic Geochemistry. The interested topics of the congress include Conventional and Unconventional Petroleum Systems, Gas Geochemistry, Source Rock Characterization, Environmental Geochemistry, New Analytical Techniques, Surface Exploration and Emerging Technologies. Dr. Bing Chen (bchen@mun.ca) is a Scientific Committee Member and a Keynote Speaker.

2. The abstract submission for the 101st Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition
(CSC 2018) in Edmonton on May 28-31, 2018 is now open. Learn more | Submit abstract

The CSC National Conference is organized by the Canadian Society for Chemistry as its flagship event. As one of the largest professional events in Canada, it usually hosts around 3,000 participants. The Energy and the Environment Symposium and the Analytical Environmental Chemistry Symposium invite the submissions on environmental chemistry and engineering research, especially including oil spills and pollutants removal. Our PEOPLE members are playing important roles in this major event, for example:

•  Dr. Feiyue Wang (feiyue.wang@umanitoba.ca), University of Manitoba, co-organizer of Analytical Environmental Chemistry Symposium (executive committee member of CSC Environmental Chemistry Division)

•  Dr. Stanislav Stoyanov (stanislav.stoyanov@canada.ca), Natural Resources Canada, co-organizer of Energy and the Environment Symposium

•  Dr. Bing Chen (bchen@mun.ca), invited keynote speaker of Energy and the Environment Symposium (executive committee member of CSC Environmental Chemistry Division)

 


 

NRPOP Lab

The Northern Region Persistent Organic Pollution Control (NRPOP) Laboratory is founded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Industrial Research and Innovation Funds (IRIF) of Newfoundland and Labrador Government. The lab is equipped with a multi-scale experimental system which can be used to support model development through simulating the transport processes of POPs and their degradation products, testing the effects of pollution control and remediation practices, and gathering data for driving and validating models.

Welcome to the NRPOP Laboratory website

The Northern Region Persistent Organic Pollution Control (NRPOP) Laboratory is founded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Industrial Research and Innovation Funds (IRIF) of Newfoundland and Labrador Government. With a strong commitment to northern regions, this first-class laboratory aims to conduct integrated modeling and experimental research on the development of innovative investigation, simulation, control and remediation technologies that are applicable to mitigate the contamination caused by persistent organic pollutants (POPs). POPs are synthetic organic compounds which are non-degradable, persistent in the environment and intensively carcinogenic and toxic to human beings as well as wild lives. Although most POPs have been banned for decades, they still exist as long term hazards due to their persistence and ability of long-range transportation. The research will not only enhance the understanding of the pollution mechanisms but also help governments and industries improve their practices for mitigation of the POPs-related pollution problems, leading to short-/long-term environmental, economic and social benefits.
