WWEM 2016: Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring Conference, Telford, 2-3 November

WWEM 2016

Visit us on the Bruker booth at WWEM 2016 Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring Conference on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd November 2016 at Telford International Centre.

WWEM is a UK event for companies and individuals involved with water, wastewater and environmental monitoring, run with industry partners including SWIG (Sensors for Water Interest Group) and the IWA (International Water Association). The event is aimed at visitors from industries including utilities, power, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, paper and contract laboratories.

  • Exhibition of over 150 companies providing instruments for water monitoring, testing and analysis
  • Over 80 free technical seminar sessions on applications and case studies
  • Gala dinner on Wednesday evening

 TXRF instruments for water analysis


Visit us on the Bruker Booth

BrukerWe’ll be at WWEM 2016 on the Bruker booth in the exhibition hall on stand 35.

Find out about the new Bruker S4 TStar, a powerful TXRF spectrometer for ultra trace element analysis. Measure contaminants in waste water and analyse trace elements in water, slurries, effluent and soil, with <10 ppb detection limits and features for 24/7 routine operation.

You’ll also be able to see the Bruker S2 Picofox, a fast TXRF instrument for multi-element trace analysis. Detect toxic elements in fresh water and heavy metals in sewage, with qualitative and quantitative analysis of filter samples.

Laboratory Conference:
Priority Pollutants Legislation: Resulting Issues for Industry and Potential Solutions

On Wednesday 2nd November there will be a one day conference about priority substances and priority hazardous substances. The aim is to inform wastewater practitioners about current legislation, background studies, capital investments and potential remediation solutions.

The conference will run from 10:00am to 4:30pm. A programme of talks, with abstracts and speaker biographies, is available on the WWEM 2016 website.

To register for the Laboratory Conference, tick the box when you register for WWEM 2016. There is a fee of £50 +VAT.

SWIG Workshop:
Resilience of Sensor Networks and Sensors for Challenging Applications

On Thursday 3rd November there will be a one day workshop about resilience. There will be a morning and afternoon session; you can register for a single session for £27.50 +VAT or both sessions for £55 +VAT:

  • Morning: Resilience of Sensor Networks
    Looking at examples of where technology and processes have been put in place for resilience. Keeping the Country Running is the current UK government’s motto for resilience. Resilience is defined as the ability of assets, networks and systems to anticipate, absorb, adapt to and/or rapidly recover from a disruptive event. Monitoring and control systems are fundamental to the operation of water utilities. Resilience of these assets, specifically sensing elements, is something that the industry has worked on in recent years with the effects climate change resulting in increased flooding.
  • Afternoon: Maintenance of Sensors
    This session will discuss examples, primarily from outside the water industry, where sensors have been used successfully in challenging applications, overcoming potential issues such as installation, maintenance and performance. Data from on-line instrumentation is increasingly becoming fundamental for managing risk, maximising efficiency and providing the wider business with reliable and trusted information. Although the quality and reliability of instrumentation has improved significantly over recent decades, there are still challenging monitoring applications.

Scientific Poster Competition

Submit a poster about your research in the field of water sensors for a chance to win prizes, up to £1,300. All posters that reach the final judging phase will be displayed at WWEM 2016, and the top 3 will be invited to give a short presentation about their work.

Full details and judging criteria are available on the WWEM 2016 website.
