Sessions & Tracks

TRACK 1: Microbial Decontamination in the Food Industry :

Part one deals with various food commodities such as fresh produce, meats, seafood, nuts, juices and dairy products, and provides background on contamination routes and outbreaks as well as proposed processing methods for each commodity. Part two goes on to review current and emerging non-chemical and non-thermal decontamination methods such as high hydrostatic pressure, pulsed electric fields, irradiation, power ultrasound and non-thermal plasma. Thermal methods such as microwave, radio-frequency and infrared heating and food surface pasteurization are also explored in detail. Chemical decontamination methods with ozone, chlorine dioxide, electrolyzed oxidizing water, organic acids and dense phase CO2 are discussed in part three. Finally, part four focuses on current and emerging packaging technologies and post-packaging decontamination.

  • Microbial decontamination of different food products
  • Current and emerging non-chemical decontamination method
  • Current and emerging chemical decontamination methods
  • Packaging technologies and their role in food safety

TRACK 2: Hospital Decontamination:

Decontamination is the combination of processes (including cleaning, disinfection and sterilization) used to render a reusable item safe for further use on patients and handling by staff. The effective decontamination of reusable surgical instruments is essential in minimizing the risk of transmission of infectious agents. The adequate decontamination of medical devices is one factor in their prevention.

  • Chemical decontamination
  • Decontamination of surgical instruments
  • Radiological decontamination
  • Biological decontamination
  • Hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) decontamination

TRACK 3: Water Sector Decontamination:

Decontamination must provide sufficient protection against the spread of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, molds and nematodes in the recirculation of drainage water since many such microorganisms can cause serious plant diseases with potentially disastrous financial consequences.

  • Decontamination of water using UV radiation, Hydrogen peroxide, Heating
  • Reverse osmosis (membrane filtration)
  • Electro-chemical activation (ECA)
  • Ozonisation

TRACK 4: Environmental Decontamination:

Decontamination is the process of cleansing an object or substance to remove contaminants such as micro-organisms or hazardous materials, including chemicals, radioactive substances, and infectious diseases. We have attempted to enhance the environmental decontamination functions of plants by introducing appropriate enzymatic activities from microorganisms. Lignin peroxidase is a well-known enzyme used for the degradation of some environmental pollutants.

  • Decontamination methods
  • Decontamination equipment and materials
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Decontamination of forests

TRACK 5: Soil Decontamination:

Soil decontamination involves the process designed to remove contaminants such as hydrocarbons (petroleum and fuel residues), heavy metals, pesticides, cyanides, volatiles, creosote, and semi-volatiles from soil. In fact, the big difficulty in soil treatment consists in separating the soil from the pollutant. Given the big number of soil types, each of them with specific composition, but also the diversified range of existing pollutants, there is a multitude of possible situations. If we add to these situations the degree of soil contamination, we get an overview of the difficulty in approaching a work for soil decontamination.

  • Soil bioremediation
  • Electro remediation
  • Phytoremediation
  • Soil washing
  • Thermal treatment
  • Decontamination of soils

TRACK 6: Prevention of Contamination:

Contamination is the presence of an unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in a material, physical body, natural environment, workplace, etc. The first step in decontamination is to establish Standard Operating Procedures that minimize contact with waste and thus the potential for contamination. In addition, Standard Operating Procedures should be established that maximize worker protection.

  • Effective Airflow/Extraction and HVAC Design
  • Personnel training and clothing
  • Cleaning Procedures

TRACK 7: Methods of Decontamination:

Decontamination is a combination of processes that removes or destroys contamination so that infectious agents or other contaminants cannot reach a susceptible site in sufficient quantities to initiate infection, or other harmful response. There are some methods which can effectively work in minimizing the contamination.

  • Disinfection
  • Ultrasonication
  • Antisepsis
  • Physical cleaning

TRACK 8: Sterilization:

Sterilization refers to any process that eliminates, removes, kills, or deactivates all forms of life and other biological agents (such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, spore forms, prions, unicellular eukaryotic organisms such as Plasmodium, etc.) present in a specified region, such as a surface, a volume of fluid, medication, or in a compound such as biological culture media. Sterilization can be achieved through various means including heat, chemicals, irradiation, high pressure and filtration.

  • Heat
  • Chemical Sterilization
  • Radiation Sterilization
  • Sterile filtration

TRACK 9: Surfactants:

Surfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension (or interfacial tension) between two liquids or between a liquid and a solid. Surfactants may act as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants. Surfactants play an important role as cleaning, wetting, dispersing, emulsifying, foaming and anti-foaming agents in many practical applications and products, including: paints, emulsions adhesives, inks, biocides (sanitizers), shampoos, toothpastes, firefighting (foams), detergents, insecticides, deinking of recycled papers, ski waxes, spermicides

  • Composition and structure
  • Pharmaceutical forms
  • Bio surfactants
  • Safety and environmental risks
  • Surfactants and its application in pharmaceuticals

TRACK 10: Industrial Decontamination:

Whether you operate an oil refinery, a processing plant, a medical lab or any type of industrial facility, decontamination is critical to safe and efficient plant management. Clean Harbors has the technical expertise, manpower and equipment to decontaminate all sizes and types of facilities and waste.

  • Innovative techniques for cleaning of machines
  • Various types of solutions used for cleaning.
  • Equipment cleaning and decontamination
  • Chemical cleaning and Process decontamination

TRACK 11: Hazardous Waste Disposal:

Simply defined, a hazardous waste is a waste with properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment. Hazardous waste is generated from many sources, ranging from industrial manufacturing process wastes to batteries and may come in many forms, including liquids, solids gases, and sludge. Hazardous waste disposal plays a key role in the maintenance of public health

  • Drum waste disposal
  • Fuel blending
  • Liquids management
  • Macroencapsulation
  • Microencapsulation
  • Organic treatment
  • Organics recovery unit
  • PCB management
  • Solids management
  • Thermochemical Process/Thermal Remediation

  TRACK 12: Waste Recycling:

Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution (from incineration), and water pollution

  • Methods of Recycling
  • Hazardous waste landfill
  • Pyrolysis

TRACK 13: Infection Prevention and Control:

Infection control addresses factors related to the spread of infections within the healthcare setting (whether patient-to-patient, from patients to staff and from staff to patients, or among-staff), including prevention (via hand hygiene/hand washing, cleaning/disinfection/sterilization, vaccination, surveillance), monitoring/investigation of demonstrated or suspected spread of infection within a particular health-care setting (surveillance and outbreak investigation), and management (interruption of outbreaks). It is on this basis that the common title being adopted within health care is "infection prevention and control."

  • Hand Hygiene
  • Cleaning
  • Personal Protective Equipments
  • Anti-microbial Surfaces
