Speech Title: Preparation of biochar-based functionalized materials for remediation of soil and water pollution
Abstract: At present, because of the accelerated development of industrialization, environmental pollution is increasingly serious, including the pollution of organic matter and heavy metals. At the same time, straw and other biomass are not fully utilized, resulting in carbon loss. Therefore, converting straw into functional biochar materials for environmental pollution remediation has become a research hotspot in recent years. However, the original adsorption capacity of biochar was limited, so functional materials with wide pH range, excellent adsorption performance and bioenvironmental friendliness could be prepared by surface activation, functional groups grafting, nanoparticles loading and bacteria combination. Therefore, we discussed about diffrernt synthesis mechanisms of functionalized biochar with adsorption performance and mechanisms for typical pollutants in environment.

Speech Title: Enhancing bioelectron transfer and methane production with nano-meidators and voltage in anaerobic wastewater treatment systems
Abstract: Anaerobic wastewater treatment have the Superiority, such as high organic load, low energy consumption, strong impact resistance, biogas and other energy recovery, lower sludge production, etc. However, it has the problems of Slow start-up, sensitive to toxic wastewater, and easy inhibition of methanogenic process. Enhancing anaerobic wastewater treatment efficiency is essential. Various methods including nano-media and direct voltage were developed to enhance the anaerobic treatment efficiency and methane production. We developed carbon and iron materials for enhancing anaerobic digestion, and also clarified the strengthening mechanisms of mediators. We also found voltage addition could promote 23% more cumulative CH4 production by enhancing the interspecies electron transfer between microbials in anaerobic process. The coupling effect of nano-mediator and direct voltage was also investigated. The results would provide the theoretical supports for enhancing the anaerobic treatment efficiency by nano-meidator and voltage.

Speech Title: Fire safety issues and countermeasures for the battery system of new energy vehicles
Abstract: In recent years, the frequent fire accidents of new energy vehicles have greatly reduced consumer confidence in purchasing. The cause of fire accidents is often attributed to the failure to detect the fault of battery system early and take reasonable countermeasures, and then allow the fault to gradually evolve to the thermal runaway of the battery system. Safety monitoring, fault diagnosis and risk assessment of battery systems have become current research hotspots and difficulties. This report focuses on the fire safety problems and countermeasures of the battery system of new energy vehicles. It describes: 1) Multi-dimensional statistical laws of battery system fire accidents; 2) Potential failure modes, inducements and failure modes of the battery system; 3) Fault diagnosis approaches of the battery system; 4) Countermeasures for thermal runaway of battery system; 5) Comment on relevant safety test standards of battery system.

Speech Title: GDP growth under environmental constraints: the case of Russia
Abstract: The paper’s theoretical significance lies in the complex conceptual view concerning GDP growth under environmental restrictions. In particular, the authors analyze a set of indicators reflecting the state and trends of the changes in Russia’s environmental pollutants (carbon dioxide emission, wastewater, production and consumption wastes) and their interdependencies with economic development, which predetermine long-term social, environmental and energy consequences. The authors develop an algorithm for substantiating the environmental constraints on Russian GDP growth in the period of 2000-2018. It verified the interrelationship links among every type of pollutant and the GDP per capita (GDPPC), energy resources and the volume of industrial production indicators in Russia. According to GDPPC growth, a forecast of environmental restrictions is developed under 10%-40% scenarios and shows the inevitability of Russia’s ecological prevention plan. The research results proved that environmental restrictions have a substantial effect on GDP and could limit economic growth.
