Prosun Bhattacharya and Mohammed Hossain have been awarded the TU Delft Global Drinking Water Best Paper Award 2019.
The winning paper " Sediment color tool for targeting arsenic-safe aquifers for the installation of shallow drinking water tubewells " (in Science of the Total Environment, ISSN 0048-9697, E-ISSN 1879-1026, Vol. 493, p. 615-625) was awarded the prize with the motivation that it "was regarded as very complete, scientifically relevant, original and above all, highly useful in practical terms. Furthermore, it was the only publication which made it to the top 4 of all jurors". The awarded paper originates from the Sustainable Arsenic Mitigation (SASMIT) project. Sida has published the project as one of its result examples (Sida.se: Method will reduce arsenic poisoning in Bangladesh ).
The prize of €2.000 will be awarded at the ‘Role of Technology’ pre-event for IWA WDCE 2019 in Delft on 25-26 November 2019.
