The 2021 Emerging Contaminants in the Environment Conference (ECEC21) was on April 27-28, 2021. This year, ECEC21 was a fully virtual conference. ECEC21 was a certified green event by the University of Illinois’ Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment.
The conference featured traditional presentations and lightning talks on the latest in emerging contaminant research, policies, and outreach in the soil, water, and air. In addition, there was plenty of opportunities for discussion and networking with those interested in all aspects of emerging contaminants in the environment.
Researchers, educators, businesses, government officials, regulatory agencies, policy makers, outreach and extension professionals, environmental groups, members of the general public, and medical, veterinary, and public health professionals were encouraged to submit abstracts and attend the conference.
