We are very happy to inform you that our session "Wastewater Reuse and Contaminants of Emerging Concern" (under main theme: EC - Identification and Prioritization of Emerging Contaminants) has been accepted for the SETAC Barcelona 2015. The session is a collaboration between COST ACTION NEREUS ES1403, JPI project StARE and other related on-going activities like for example the Norman Association WG5 activities on Wastewater Reuse and Contaminants of Emerging Concern. 

The session will be co-chaired by Despo Fatta-Kassinos and Celia Manaia. 

Topics within the following scientific directions are welcomed: 

  • Microbiome, mobile antibiotic resistome, micropollutants in treated wastewater and in downstream aquatic/terrestrial environments 
  • Uptake and transmission of micropollutants and antibiotic resistant bacteria and resistance genes in crops 
  • Effect-based bioassays required for wastewater reuse schemes
  • Technologies efficient/economically viable to meet the current wastewater reuse challenges 
  • Human health risks associated with wastewater reuse
  • Risk assessment and policy development
