IMG_2337The second day of The 2ndInternational Conference on Water Resources Development and Environmental Protection (ICWRDEP) 2017 invites Prof. John L. Zhou from University of Technology Sydney, Australia, Friday (15/Sep). Moderated by Dr. Eng. Donny Harisuseno, ST., MT., Prof Zhou brings a topic on Wetland in Australia: Introduction and Solution of Water Quality Degradation.

Having a research career in environmental research that focuses on environmental pollution, he shares his experiences in how to deal with water pollution by constructed wetlands. As an area where water covers the soil all year, or just certain times of the year, wetlands became his main research area.
