Objectifs du Symposium

Les objectifs de ce symposium sont de rassembler diverses experts en recherche et en gestion de la qualité de l'eau afin de présenter leurs réalisations et leurs innovations faites en science, en génie et en politiques publiques, et de favoriser ainsi l'échange d'informations d'intérêt public entre universités, consultants, industries et gouvernements.

Des présentations orales, ainsi que des présentations « 1 diapositive & 3 minutes », sont sollicitées sur les thèmes proposés pour ce symposium. Le comité organisateur encourage également la soumission de résumés de haute qualité sur des thèmes qui ne figurent pas dans la liste, mais qui sont basés sur des études innovatrices et/ou des applications commerciales liées à la problématique de la gestion, du traitement et de qualité de l’eau.

Si vous souhaitez organiser une session spéciale, veuillez contacter les co-présidents de la conférence: Prof. Bing Chen (bchen@mun.ca) and Prof. Banu Örmeci (banu.ormeci@carleton.ca).

Keynote speech:

Photosynthetically-enhanced eco-engineered treatment systems

Abstract: The biological treatment of contaminated effluents in cold climate regions is one of the greatest challenges for environmental engineers, as these systems, although considered robust, can be subject to significant fluctuations in contaminant loadings, as well as ambient climate conditions, which can ultimately affect their performance. These factors are compounded in small, remote and rural areas where the use of conventional treatment systems is not logistically or economically feasible, and passive, semi-passive or naturalized treatment systems are the most suitable alternative by virtue of their ease of operation, minimal energy input, reduced maintenance requirements. In the next decade, increasingly efficient treatment systems, designed to operate under temperate conditions, will be required to meet increasingly stringent effluent discharge guidelines and minimize detrimental effects on receiving environments. Although used extensively, concerns associated with the long-term performance and functional reliability of these systems compared to conventional, but less sustainable, treatment systems have been raised. However, these challenges may be largely addressed by the implementation of carefully designed and integrated biological processes in eco-engineered systems.

This research aims to address the following scientific question: can photosynthetic organisms be employed in integrated eco-engineered treatment systems located in small, remote or isolated areas to enhance the mitigation of persistent organic and/or metal contaminants. More specifically, it examines the role of algae in enhancing photobiological degradation of persistent organic contaminants (POCs), as well as their role in enhancing the mitigation of metal-rich wastewaters using N-fixing cyanobacteria and microbially-induced calcite precipitation (MICP) to stabilize metals in tailings. Critical factors limiting the widespread adoption of eco-engineered treatment technologies have been the lack of a standardized understanding of temperature and water chemistry effects on treatment process mechanisms within these systems, and a more robust basis of comparison within and between systems as they evolve with time. Hence, a focus must be placed on better understanding the dynamic interactions influencing the performance, enabling the development of a toolkit which would lead to more robust design guidelines that follow an evidence-based approach. This could be a great benefit to the Canadian mining and oil and gas industry who are often located in remote or isolated sites, and produce large volumes of processing effluents that require subsequent treatment prior to water reuse or discharge to receiving environments.

Keynote speech:

From Polio to COVID: Environmental Virology at its Best

Abstract: Since the era of waterborne jaundice and polio, diseases spread by viruses were present prior to our understanding of these unique biological entities. Environmental virology attempts to understand the disease risk through the monitoring of viruses in wastewater, fresh and marine waters. The advent of molecular tools and high throughput sequencing technologies coupled with metagenomics has offered the opportunity to identify human viral pathogens including the global spread of diseases such as COVID-19. We now have the ability to monitor community health via the surveillance of our wastewater thus addressing global grand challenges including the implementation of worldwide vaccination programs.
