  Information - IS33 - NH8.3/BG2.17/SSS31 Heavy-Metal Pollution in the Geoenvironment: Understanding for Remediation Action (co-organized by NH, BG & SSS)

Event Information
Worldwide, and particularly in developing countries, human economical activities have resulted in the release of industrial effluents (liquid, gas or solid). These effluents often contain heavy-metals and associated contaminants, that cause the pollution of air, water, soils, and many biological organisms all along the trophic chain. This session focuses on heavy-metal contamination studies, including characterisation, heavy-metal transport and transformation, risk assessment, ecotoxicology and restoration strategies. The conveners solicits contributions that may range from theoretical approaches, experimental laboratory setups or field-case studies. The session puts emphasis in developing countries cases and on sustainable management strategies, but welcomes all contributions. We look forward to a lively oral and poster session.
