9th International Conference of Environmental Science and Technology Best Student Paper Third Place Winner

Published on: 09-Jul-2018

Congratulations to Ms Gayana Herath, PhD student of Professor Ng Wun Jern at NEWRI-R3C, for winning the Best Student Paper Award (Third Place) at the 9th International Conference of Environmental Science and Technology organised by American Academy of Sciences taking place between 25th and 29th of June, 2018 in Houston, USA.

The prize was awarded to Ms Herath for the paper entitle "Removal of Glyphosate Using Commercial Grade Biochar and Activated Carbon: Statistical Optimization of Adsorption Parameters Using Response Surface Methodology".

The awarded prize marks significance of the subject in environmental engineering where introduction of glyphosate, found in herbicides, to waterbodies is of huge concern owning to its toxicity and hence a potential threat to public health and ecological systems. The study compares commercially available activated carbon and biochar for glyphosate removal from aqueous systems.
