Materials Challenges for Next-Generation Water Treatment


Thank you to all the participants for a great workshop!

There is considerable effort in the Denver area to develop and implement new materials and technologies for improved treatment of water sources. In the coming year, NIST-Boulder is launching a project, "Nanotechnology for Water," aimed at developing real-time, in-situ, nanoscale characterization tools for measuring the next-generation of multi-functional materials for water treatment. The goal of this workshop is two-fold: to introduce our efforts in metrology for clean water and to provide a forum for the local water community to showcase its unique advances and capabilities.

This invitation-only workshop will include people from academia, industry, and federal and local government. We hope to identify the major themes encompassing current materials challenges in water treatment in Colorado.

Security Instructions:

All conference attendees and visitors to the DoC government facilities must pass through a security screening process and receive a DoC badge to access the site. We appreciate your cooperation with these security procedures. If you drive to the site yourself, please arrive at least 20 minutes early to allow for ample time to check in at the Visitor’s Center.

All participants must check in at the Visitor’s Center at the main entrance to the DOC campus.

  • If you are driving, as you enter the NIST campus stay to the far right and pull off into the Visitor’s Center parking lot just before the gate. Vehicles will be searched by security personnel.
  • All attendees need to enter the Visitor’s Center. Identify yourself as a conference attendee. Be prepared to show picture identification such as a valid U.S. driver’s license, state-issued ID card, or Federal government photo ID. Foreign visitors must show a valid passport. Visitors will not be admitted to the site without proper identification.
  • A visitor badge will be issued to you valid for the workshop date. Individuals may be required to pass through a magnetometer and may be subject to having any bags, purses, suitcases, briefcases, etc. searched.
  • A parking pass will be issued to those who are driving and should be placed on the rear-view mirror or dash of the vehicle.
  • Proceed to the front lobby of Building 1. Directions and parking areas are denoted on the site map.
