We are pleased to invite you to the Groundwater Remediation using Nano/biotechnology with focus on the Contaminated Resources in Brazil (GRUN) workshop which will be jointly organized by Teesside University (UK) and the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM). This two-day event will take place at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, SP by the date June 24th and 25th, 2019.
Also, on June 26th an extra hands-on course will be offered exclusively to 20 participants based on selection by the Organising Committee.


There will be keynote talks from leading scholars from around the world to discuss the state-of-the-art in groundwater remediation technologies. We will also have speakers from Brazil who will discuss the current state of Brazilian groundwater resources. Novel technologies, such as nan/bioremediation, have shown to be a promising method for in-situ remediation of groundwater resources. This workshop will be the first event in Brazil focusing on the use of metal nanoparticles for in-situ degradation of groundwater contaminates. There will also be discussions on bioremediation processes that use microorganisms to degrade contaminates, again on-situ.


The conference will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and engineers to collectively explore how these technological advances can be applied to Brazilian groundwater systems.  We expect a wide range of participants including scientists/engineers, academics, industry representatives, and governmental agents. We encourage you to contribute to this workshop by an oral presentation or a poster.
