100 years of Porto Marghera: From chemical industry to environmental protection

SIAD attended the conference 'Chemistry in Venice - From chemical industry to environmental protection' held in Mestre (Venice) last October19.

With the event, the Order of the Chemists of Venice wanted to commemorate the 100thanniversaryof the establishment of the Porto Marghera Industrial Center, describing in a conference the evolution of the chemist profession in the Venetian area and beyond. Different topics were covered, such as the birth of the scientific center of the Ca' Foscari University in Venice, the establishment of the course in Industrial Chemistry as a natural adaptation of the academic world to the development of Porto Marghera, and the role of professionals in environmental protection.

The event saw the participation of about 130 persons, half of whom were students. We assisted to the presentations of the companies of the chemical sector, which have made the history of the industrial center of Porto Marghera and have expressed their intention of making future investments in newly-developed plants. SIAD participated also with its own presentation entitled 'Innovative Technologies in Groundwater Remediation: from the experimental approach to full scale applications', presented by Dr. EleonoraPasinetti and EngineerMichelaPeroni. SIAD has thus left a good impression of a company that can innovate and do research. For SIAD it has been an important opportunity to present itself as a local company, also as a supplier in the petrochemical sector.
