Zahid Amjad (Author of Mineral Scales in Biological and Industrial Systems)
Mineral scales in biological and industrial systems
Recognized experts in their respective fields were invited to speak at the symposium, with strong attendance particularly from academia, government, and industrial research centers. This symposium was part of a larger series on this topic. The first symposium addressing issues related to mineral scales and deposits was held in Washington, District of Columbia, from August 21 to August 25, , at the th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society. This symposium was organized with the following objectives in mind: a to bring together researchers and technologists from academia, research centers, and industries, with active interest in this topic; b to provide an opportunity for discussion of recent developments; c to offer a forum for exchange of ideas; and d to identify the unfulfilled needs and challenges on the control of mineral scales and deposits facing various industries. Water available for domestic and industrial applications contains a variety of soluble and insoluble impurities such as dissolved minerals, natural organic compounds, suspended particles, and domestic and industrial wastes.
