The Congress "Arsenic within the surroundings" bargains a world, multi- and interdisciplinary dialogue platform for learn and innovation aimed in the direction of a holistic option to the matter posed through the environmental toxin arsenic, with massive societal impression. The congress has interested in leading edge and step forward learn in actual, chemical, toxicological, scientific, agricultural and different particular matters on arsenic throughout a broader environmental realm. The Congress "Arsenic within the atmosphere" was once first geared up in Mexico urban (As2006) through As2008 in Valencia, Spain, As2010 in Tainan, Taiwan, As2012 in Cairns, Australia and As2014 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The sixth overseas Congress As2016 used to be held June 19-23, 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden and used to be entitled Arsenic study and international Sustainability.



The Congress addressed the wider context of arsenic study alongside the subsequent themes:
Theme 1: Arsenic in Environmental Matrices and Interactions (Air, Water, Soil and organic Matrices)
Theme 2: Arsenic in nutrients Chain
Theme three: Arsenic and Health
Theme four: fresh Water know-how for keep watch over of Arsenic
Theme five: Societal concerns, coverage reviews, Mitigation and Management



Long time period publicity to low-to-medium degrees of arsenic through infected foodstuff and ingesting water could have a major impression on human health and wellbeing and globally, greater than a hundred million individuals are in danger. because the finish of the 20th century, arsenic in ingesting water (mainly groundwater) has emerged as an international future health difficulty. some time past decade, the presence of arsenic in plant meals – in particular rice – has won expanding awareness. within the Nordic nations particularly, using water-soluble inorganic arsenic chemical substances (e.g. chromated copper arsenate, CCA) as wooden preservatives and the mining of sulfidic ores were flagged as health and wellbeing predicament. the problem has been accentuated via discoveries of clearly taking place arsenic in groundwater, basically within the deepest wells, in components of the Fennoscandian protect and in sedimentary formations, with probably unsafe results on public well-being. Sweden has been on the vanguard of analysis at the wellbeing and fitness results of arsenic, technological strategies for arsenic elimination, and sustainable mitigation measures for constructing international locations. website hosting this Congress in Sweden used to be additionally suitable simply because traditionally Sweden has been one of many best manufacturer of As2O3 and its emission from the smelting industries in northern Sweden and has effectively applied activities to minimize the commercial emissions of arsenic in addition to minimizing using fabrics and items containing arsenic in considering the fact that 1977. The Congress has accrued execs fascinated about various segments of interdisciplinary learn in an open discussion board, and reinforced kinfolk among academia, undefined, examine laboratories, executive enterprises and the non-public region to proportion an optimum surroundings for trade of information, discoveries and discussions concerning the challenge of arsenic within the setting and catalyze the information new release and ideas at a coverage context to accomplish the objectives for put up 2015 Sustainable improvement.
