Sensors for Nutrient Monitoring: Phosphate

October 23rd, 2013

Another successful SWIG workshop was held at The View, at the Thames Barrier on 23 October 2013. 41 delegates heard about the business and regulatory drivers for nutrient monitoring, phosphate monitoring in the wastewater treatment process, an overview of the various current technologies available for nutrient measurement in water. We then heard about future technologies including nutrient biosensors and MagMEMS, and about a project where high resolution monitoring of phosphate and nitrate was undertaken in lowland rivers. There were the usual opportunities for networking and perusing the table top displays as well as the opportunity to learn more about the huge and impressive Thames Barrier and have a tour of the barrier including going through the underwater tunnels!
