June 13

A public lecture examining the unintended health risks associated with water disinfection is being hosted by Loughborough University on Monday 24 June.

The talk, entitled ‘Drinking Water Chemicals: Discoveries and Challenges’ is by eminent environmental scientist Dr Susan D Richardson.  Dr Richardson’s area of expertise is in identifying new disinfection by-products (DBPs) in drinking water.

In this lecture,  Dr Richardson will explore the efforts being made to tackle this issue and examine new innovations being developed by the chemical engineering community to try and provide solutions.

It is being held at the University’s Burleigh Court Hotel and Conference Centre, with a welcome reception at 4pm followed by the lecture at 5pm.  The event is free to attend and to book a place please call Janey Briers on 01509 222502 or email H.J.Briers@lboro.ac.uk

The annual Loughborough University Davis-Swindin Chemical Engineering Series is organised by the Department of Chemical Engineering.  It is an endowed legacy gift from Norman Swindin, a pioneer of Chemical Engineering and an honorary reader at Loughborough, to honour George Edward Davis, the founding father of Chemical Engineering.
