Environmental Best Practices

by Maciej Góra

The 2nd International Environmental Best Practices (EBP-II) Conference was held in Krakow, Poland, 14–18 September 2009. This symposium was chaired by Maciej Góra and Miroslaw Luczynski and was hosted by the Faculty of Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University, one of the oldest universities in Europe. The EBP-II Conference attracted over 100 participants from scientific and industrial institutions from 24 countries. Symposium topics covered a broad spectrum of environmental issues and solutions to the challenges facing the world today. One plenary lecture, 7 keynote addresses, 20 oral papers, and 87 posters were presented over five days during the following sessions:

  • Environmental Remediation
  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Solid Waste Management
  • Alternative Energy Sources
  • Environmental Toxicology
  • Interfacial Phenomena in Environmental Sciences
  • Resources and Ecosystems Management

The EBP II conference was organized in collaboration with the Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA; the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland; Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, PAS, Poland; and the University of Applied Sciences in Offenburg, Germany. The conference successfully brought together researchers from academic, governmental, and industrial institutions to discuss new developments and results in the field of environmental science.

The AGFES Workshop moderated by Delia Gallinaro, MPA (Sam Houston State University), was an integral part of the meeting and provided participants with brief but valuable information on funding opportunities for research and scholarly activities, grant proposal development and submission, and the dissemination of results.

One of the highlights of the meeting was a discussion about the problems of simultaneous toxicological impact of xenobiotics on water organisms and methods used in their determination.

The contributions to EBP II will be published in Environmental Biotechnology journal <www.environmentalbiotechnology.pl>. In addition, all conference participants have been invited by the editor of EB to submit manuscripts based on lectures or posters.
This symposium was sponsored and supported by IUPAC, the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, City of Krakow, and the Pro Chemia Foundation.

Full details of the conference program, including a list of speakers and lecture titles are available on the conference website at <www.chemia.uj.edu.pl/ebp.html>.

The EBP III will be held in 2011 at the University of Applied Sciences, Offenburg, Germany.

Maciej Gora <mgora@chemia.uj.edu.pl> is a scientist in the Department of Organic Chemistry, Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. He was the co-chair of the EBP-II conference.
