ALS to exhibit at Big P Conference
ALS Environmental are delighted to announce that we will be attending and exhibiting at the “Big P” Conference at Old Trafford, Manchester on the 4th and 5th July 2017. The two-day conference and exhibition will explore the balance between reducing phosphorus consumption within river catchments and establishing an effective means for recovering phosphorus as a nutrient.
The Water Framework Directive (WFD) is a European Directive (2000/60/EC) to monitor and improve the quality of Surface Water across the European Union (EU). The UK response to the WFD is known as the Chemical Investigation Programme (CIP). ALS Environmental is supporting a number of UK Water and Sewerage companies with their CIP2 project sampling and analysis, as well as assisting other EU countries with their analysis for the WFD, including Turkey, Poland and Sweden, which demonstrates the expertise of our technical team and the quality of the methods we have developed.
Representing ALS at the Big P conference will be our Wakefield Laboratory Manager Lauren Ellis and our Business Development Manager Mark Aristidou. The Big P conference is focusing on Phosphorus, which is a limiting factor preventing good chemical status under the WFD regulations, for UK inland surface waters. ALS have already been involved in widescale Phosphorus removal projects throughout the UK, with some of the presentations focusing on sites that were analysed by the ALS Environmental team.
Upon representing ALS at the Big P conference Mark comments: “ALS were involved in the first CIP programme and the current CIP2 which is focusing on the water treatment of surface waters before and after the treatment works. The Big P conference is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise in the field and explore new opportunities with fellow delegates and exhibitors.”
