GWI sponsors Australia-NZ Young Water Professional Conference
UNSW-GWI sponsored the Best Paper Award at the AWA Australia-New Zealand Young Water Professional Conference, held in Sydney on 29-30 June 2022. GWI was represented by Dr Kefeng Zhang, who attended the event and had the privilege of judging the award.
Dr Zhang said that the event attracted many young water professionals and that there was notable diversity across both attendees and aspects of the program.
“There was a great mix of delegates in attendance. Not just university academics and PhD students, but also an overwhelming amount of industry presenters – which offered a wonderful opportunity to learn what is happening in industry,” said Zhang.
“Within the program itself, there was a nice variety of activities. In addition to presentations, there were a number of lively panel discussions and workshops.”
The best paper was awarded to Ms. Toni Henderson, a Senior Geologist from AECOM, whose topic was ‘PFAS is the Name, Destruction is the Aim: Findings from the Pilot Scale De-Fluoro™ Remediation System Demonstration’.
