Swansea University hosts important International Ozone Conference

The Swansea Bay Campus will be buzzing this week as the College of Engineering is hosting a 2-day conference which will bring together researchers and professionals with an interest in ozone and advanced oxidation.

Although the water sector remains the largest user of ozone and related oxidants, other applications in the food, industry and health sectors are also growing. Advances in ozone and related oxidants address conventional and emerging water and environmental issues as well as air and soil remediation. Research in these areas continues to advance and new applications continue to emerge.

The International Ozone Association’s (IOA) “ Ozone and Advanced Oxidation for the Water - Energy-Food-Health-Health Nexus”  Conference (26-28 October) brings together experts in this important subject who will be presenting and discussing the current state of knowledge and the latest advances in this field.
