Dioxin 2016: 36th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants

Dioxin 2016: 36th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants

Description: Dioxin 2016 will be held on the 40th Anniversary of the “Seveso” accident (July 10th, 1976) which so heavily spread anger and risks on a civil population and determined, for the first time ever in the world,  a deep revision of relationships between humans, industry and environment. It has been said that there is a “before Seveso and after Seveso” perception of risks and promulgation of laws committed to better respect “Nature”. Very recently, in Paris, the whole  world agreed to increase this commitment.

Location: Florence, Italy
Dates: August 28- September 2
