The Congress "Arsenic within the atmosphere" bargains a world, multi- and interdisciplinary dialogue platform for study and innovation aimed in the direction of a holistic approach to the matter posed via the environmental toxin arsenic, with significant societal impression. The congress has inquisitive about innovative and leap forward study in actual, chemical, toxicological, clinical, agricultural and different particular matters on arsenic throughout a broader environmental realm. The Congress "Arsenic within the setting" was once first geared up in Mexico urban (As2006) by way of 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 worldwide Sustainability.



The Congress addressed the wider context of arsenic examine 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 consuming water could have a major effect on human health and wellbeing and globally, greater than a hundred million everyone is in danger. because the finish of the 20th century, arsenic in ingesting water (mainly groundwater) has emerged as an international future health predicament. long ago decade, the presence of arsenic in plant meals – specifically rice – has received expanding consciousness. within the Nordic international locations specifically, 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 future health difficulty. the problem has been accentuated by means of discoveries of clearly happening arsenic in groundwater, basically within the deepest wells, in elements of the Fennoscandian protect and in sedimentary formations, with in all likelihood hazardous results on public health and wellbeing. Sweden has been on the vanguard of analysis at the overall healthiness results of arsenic, technological options for arsenic elimination, and sustainable mitigation measures for constructing international locations. internet hosting this Congress in Sweden was once additionally proper simply because traditionally Sweden has been one of many prime manufacturer of As2O3 and its emission from the smelting industries in northern Sweden and has effectively carried out activities to lessen the commercial emissions of arsenic in addition to minimizing using fabrics and items containing arsenic in due to the fact that 1977. The Congress has accumulated pros curious about varied segments of interdisciplinary examine in an open discussion board, and bolstered kin among academia, undefined, examine laboratories, govt corporations and the non-public quarter to proportion an optimum surroundings for alternate of information, discoveries and discussions concerning the challenge of arsenic within the atmosphere and catalyze the information iteration and suggestions at a coverage context to accomplish the targets for publish 2015 Sustainable improvement.
