Taking waste out of wastewater
1:15pm - 2:05pm

Mark van Loosdrecht, winner of the world's most prestigious water award The Stockholm Water Prize, gives a talk on wastewater treatment and resource recovery.
Professor van Loosdrecht, together with Professor Bruce Rittmann, was named the 2018 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate for his pioneering role in the water-related environmental biotechnology revolution currently taking place. Rittmann and van Loosdrecht have both played a leading role by presenting new knowledge around microbiological processes in wastewater, but their contributions are not only academic. Their research has also led to a new generation of water treatment processes that make it possible to remove harmful contaminants from water, cut wastewater treatment costs, reduce energy consumption and even recover chemicals and nutrients for recycling. The Environmental Biotechnology research group around Professor Mark van Loosdrecht at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, has contributed a number of patented innovations that have turned wastewater treatment on its head. Read more.
Speaker profile: Mark van Loosdrecht is a professor in Environmental Biotechnology at the Delft University of Technology. His scientific interests are mainly focused on biofilm processes, nutrient conversion, and the role of storage polymers in microbial ecology. He is especially interested in new processes for wastewater treatment and resource recovery from organic waste.
He has received several awards for his work including the Simon Stevin Award, Spinoza Award, Lee Kuan Yew Singapore Water Prize and the IWA Grand Award and a honorary doctorate from the ETH-Zurich and Gent University.  He is a member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Dutch Academy of Engineering (AcTI) as well as the US National Academy of Engineering. He has been awarded a knighthood in the order of the Dutch Lion. He has published over 700 scientific papers, over 15 patents, and has supervised over 50 Ph.D. students.  He serves as Editor-in-Chief of Water Research.

Beyond the ‘pink tide’: Is Dependent Capitalism in crisis in Argentina?
1:15pm - 2:45pm


Beyond the ‘pink tide’: Is Dependent Capitalism in crisis in Argentina?  
In coversation with 
Dr Mariano Féliz (PhD) National University of La Plata, Argentina. National Council for Sciences and Technology (CONICET, Argentina) 

"The global capitalist crisis has transformed the ‘neo-developmentalist strategy' of capitalist development in South America. In the seminar, we will discuss the Argentine case by focusing on the current economic 'transitional crisis’ and explore the specificity of the Argentinean economy as well as the new forms of social and class conflict that have emerged as a result of this transition. We will also consider some of the Argentinean scholars’ recent contributions to the tradition of Marxist Dependency Theory (MDT) by highlighting the way in which they are interpreting this new crisis in relation to both economic growth and class conflict in the country."
