International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation virtual Symposium
- Wednesday, September 8, 2021 from 10:45am to 12:15pm
- Virtual via www.ibbs18.org
Join CBE faculty and an international panel of experts for a roundtable session “Closing the gap: the role of regulatory standards in biofilm research and industry innovation,” at the International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation Symposium. The session will take place at 10:45 a.m. MDT Wed., Sept 8.
This roundtable session will offer a set of (hopefully controversial!) industrial and academic perspectives on the importance of standard biofilm test methods. Case studies will focus on the need for biofilm methods in the oil and gas industry, the advantages and disadvantages of a standard test method versus best practices guidelines, and how regulatory hurdles are placing constraints on biofilm technology development and innovation. We will also provide an opportunity to submit questions for discussion in advance of the session through a pre-questionnaire.
Organisers: Darla Goeres, Scott Wade, Jeremy Webb & International Biofilm Standards Task Group
