CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Transport of Environmental Contaminants Related to Energy Processes

2014 AIChE Annual Meeting, Atlanta, Georgia

November 16-21, 2014
Abstract Deadline: May 12, 2014

The environment is contaminated by an array of pollutants stemming from energy-related activities such as the acquisition, refinement, combustion/utilization, and accidental release of fuels. This session emphasizes the understanding of contaminant transport in environmental media (e.g., air, groundwater, oceans, soil, etc.) and industrial operations. Papers are invited on topics including the physical, chemical and biological processes that pollutants undergo upon release; the effects of interacting mixtures and complex systems on contaminant fate and transport; remediation methods; release prevention; and other issues, challenges, and solutions on which laboratory, pilot, or field-scale studies shed light.

Please submit your abstracts using the “AIChE Abstract Submission System”. Any other inquiries should be directed to the symposium organizers:
