Our GM Research Services Jacqueline Frizenschaf had the pleasure of co-chairing the “Prevention and Management of Taste & Odour Events in Supplies” workshop this month at the International Water Association’s World Water Congress in Copenhagen.

Organised by the IWA Specialist Group on “Algal Toxins and Taste and Odour Compounds in Water”, the findings to date of worldwide cyanobacteria investigations and prevention efforts were presented and discussed. This specialist group is chaired by our Research Manager Arash Zamyadi and Professor Tsair-Fuh Lin (National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan – pictured below).

Jacqueline also visited this month SUEZ’s International Water and Environmental Research Centre (CIRSEE) that is located just outside Paris, France. This facility is Suez’s largest research centre and also offers technical support to 200 water and wastewater plants in 25 countries.
