Clay minerals in the natural and built environment: formation, chemistry & applications
Newcastle University, 17 May 2019
The meeting will explore recent advances in our understanding of how clay minerals – natural and engineered – form, behave and react in the environment, with a particular focus on their effect on the fate of contaminants in natural and built environments, and how this understanding can help us to engineer more sustainable solutions to treat pollution. It will thus will bring together the research communities investigating clay minerals, their role and reactions in the environment, and the environmental chemistry and fate of contaminants. We expect a broad and diverse audience with interest in the interdisciplinary theme of the meeting and will particularly encourage early career researchers (PhD students, Postdocs) as well as those working in industry to present, including research-in-progress.
This meeting is co-supported and co-organised by the Clay Minerals Group and the Environmental Chemistry Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Organisers: Anke Neumann and Laura Newsome. Further details: https://www.minersoc.org/cmg-rip.html
