“IUVA is the leading global technical organization dedicated to developing ultraviolet light solutions to environmental and health concerns in water and air,” says Dr. Karl G. Linden, University of Colorado and President of IUVA. “We are very excited to have received a record number of abstracts for the event, as our World Congress brings together academia, the public sector and industrial leading experts from around the world to share their research and experience.” Topics that will be covered in the conference include: the emergence of disinfection technologies including UV-C LEDs; regulatory trends; applications to municipal drinking water, reuse water and wastewater; Ballast water treatment; Reduction in TOC, chlorine, chloramine, and ozone; and Industrial water supply and discharge.
