Water Technology helps organize WETPOL

Emma McAteer and Mireille Martens of the Water Technology research group are helping organize the tenth edition of the WETPOL symposium in Bruges in September.

The abbreviation stands for Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control. During the conference, scientists, engineers and practitioners exchange knowledge about wetlands and the opportunities they offer in relation to improving water quality, climate regulation and flood control. In addition to HZ University of Applied Sciences, participants include the universities in Ghent and Leuven and the companies Rietland and Aquafin. The symposium runs from Sept. 10 to 14.
