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. There is increasing interest in the role of cleaning for controlling hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Pathogens such as meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), norovirus, multi-resistant Gram-negative bacilli and Clostridium difficile persist in the healthcare environment for considerable lengths of time. Both detergent and/or disinfectant-based cleaning can control these pathogens in routine and outbreak situations despite the minimal evidence. Traditional cleaning methods are notoriously inefficient for decontamination and new approaches have been proposed, including novel disinfectants, automated dispersal systems, steam cleaning and a range of antimicrobial surfaces and coatings. These methods are difficult to evaluate because few studies have modeled environmental data against the patient outcome. Clearly, more work is required on cleaning and decontamination in hospitals, particularly with escalating antimicrobial resistance. Cleaning practices should be tailored to clinical risk, location, site and hand-touch frequency, and evaluated for cost-benefit for both routine and outbreak situations. Forthcoming evidence on the role of antimicrobial surfaces will supplement infection prevention strategies for healthcare environments, including those targeting multi-drug resistant pathogens.

TRACK 3: Water Decontamination

Pure water plays an important role in infection control. Our healthcare water treatment systems are used in a variety of applications involved with the decontamination and rinsing of surgical instruments and medical devices, for endoscopy, ear, nose and throat (ENT), sterile services, dentistry, and podiatry. Medical equipments are becoming increasingly regulated by industry guidelines and international standards due to greater concerns over infection control. We can help to minimize the risk of cross infection to patients by delivering compliant purified water systems and services.

Water purification for decontamination is a subject of growing concern as demands on the healthcare sector increase. We design and supply water treatment products and services, and ensure cost-effective regulatory compliance is achieved. We devise, install and project manage the installation and commissioning of systems that supply facilities, from small endoscopy suites to central sterile services departments and supercenters.

  • Disinfection of water
  • Ultraviolet Disinfection of Water
  • Using Hydrogen peroxide
  • Disinfection using Reverse osmosis
  • Electro-chemical activation
  • Ozonisation
  • Purification of Water
  • Water Treatment Chemicals
  • Water treatment technology

TRACK 4: Dental Decontamination

Decontamination of dental instruments is a complex process that includes numerous stages including cleaning, disinfection, inspection and sterilization. The individual stages should be linked together wherever possible to form a complete decontamination process. The objective of dental decontamination is to protect the patients, staff and any other person who come in contact with medical devices after the decontamination process from contracting diseases caused by microorganisms on those devices.

  • Importance of Dental Decontamination
  • Cleaning of Dental Instruments
  • Sterilization of Dental Instruments
  • New instruments and technologies for Dental Decontamination

TRACK 5: Air 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.

  • Cause of Air contamination
  • Purification of Air
  • Odor Management
  • Technologies for air decontamination

TRACK 6: 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 a 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
  • Decontamination of forests
  • Decontamination of soils

TRACK 7: 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. Some of the ways of prevention of contamination are using:

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

TRACK 8:  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 9: 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
  • Chemical Sterilization
  • Radiation Sterilization
  • Sterile filtration
  • High Pressure Sterilization

TRACK 10: 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 11: Industrial Decontamination

Decontamination - the process of removing or neutralizing contaminants that have accumulated on personnel and equipment - is critical to health and safety at hazardous waste sites. Decontamination protects workers from hazardous substances that may contaminate and eventually permeate the protective clothing, respiratory equipment, tools, vehicles, and other equipment used on site; it protects all site personnel by minimizing the transfer of harmful materials into clean areas; it helps prevent mixing of incompatible chemicals; and it protects the community by preventing uncontrolled transportation of contaminants from the site..

  • Innovative techniques for cleaning of machines
  • Various types of solutions used for cleaning.
  • Equipment cleaning and decontamination
  • Chemical cleaning and Process decontamination
  • Electronics Devices Decontamination
  • Material Decontamination in Industries

TRACK 12: Hazardous Waste Management

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
  • Thermal treatment
  • Organic treatment
  • Organics recovery unit
  • PCB management
  • Solids management
  • Thermochemical Process/Thermal Remediation

  TRACK 13: 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
  • New Technologies

TRACK 14: 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."

  • Healthcare associated Infections
  • Hand Hygiene
  • Cleaning
  • Injection Safety
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Anti-microbial Surfaces
