The theme of the 2nd Disinfection and Disinfection By-Products Conference is How academia and industry work together to make water better. Our meeting activities reflect three elements: Disinfection in what we hope to share, both in the new progress of disinfection process, reagent and instrument, and in new discovery on pathogen occurrence and inactivation mechanism which can guide the disinfection process development; Disinfection By-Products (DBPs) in the hotspots about the regulated and the emerging DBPs, including the occurrence, formation pathways, precursors, and control measures; Public Health Issues including the acute and severe water-borne diseases which disinfection is designed to address, and the chronic toxicity of DBPs which may lead to the increase of cancer and adverse birth outcomes.
- Disinfection: disinfectants, processes, facilities
- Disinfection By-products: analysis, chemistry and control
- Pathogen: monitoring, inactivation, biofilm
- Regulation and policy
