UKSAF Summer Meeting – 1st July 2015

Visit Blue Scientific at the UKSAF Summer Meeting 2015 on Wednesday 1st July at the University of Chester. Follow Blue Scientific on Linked In for updates:

UKSAF Summer Meeting 2015

The theme of the meeting is Analysis at the Industry/ Environment Interface. An exploration of the contribution of surface analysis to industrial and environmental improvement, remediation, energy efficiency and quality of life.

The world faces increasing challenges in terms of resource use, sustainable development, energy security and population growth. We all expect to enjoy the benefits of a western-style industrialised society, but with minimal environmental impact and continuing improvement in quality of life. UKSAF 2015 will provide a forum for discussion of the role of surface analysis in meeting technological and social needs in pursuit of these aims. Materials use, processing efficiency, non-conventional energy and environmental remediation will be explored.
