Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Dr Stuart Khan, UNSW
Venue:
Engineers Australia Auditorium
Synopsis:
Endocrine distributors found in waste water have been difficult to treat and as a result have caused abnormalities in the sex hormones of fish and other aquatic organisms. So what treatment methods are available today and how effective are they at reducing this impact on the aquatic environment? Dr Khan is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the UNSW and gave us some fascinating insights into the endocrine distributors commonly found in waste water and how they result in abnormalities in the sex hormones of fish and other aquatic organisms. He also discussed the treatment methods are available today and how effective are they at reducing this impact on the aquatic environment.
