International Conference on Water Depollution and Green Energy (CIDEEV2022)

With the great success of the First Edition held in EST Casablanca, Morocco 2019, we truly believe that the second Edition of CIDEEV2022 will be a successful experience and is going to be an international event for the presentation of the new research results in the field of water treatment, material and green energy.

This conference will see the participation of many experts to discuss, over two days, topics related to the fields of water, materials and renewable energies. This meeting will be an opportunity to present the latest advances in these fields and allow researchers to discuss subjects of great scientific interest.

Topics of CIDEEV2022

The depollution of wastewater has become an imperative with human activities which are inevitably accompanied by an increasing production of polluting discharges. Wastewater treatment helps preserve health and is a good ally in protecting the environment. Since the previous decades, Morocco has experienced an influx of population to the cities. Today, 60.3% of Moroccans (RGPH 2014) live in cities. Thus, most industrial and domestic pollution is concentrated in urban sewers. Many factors alter the nature of surface water and groundwater, mainly (organic matter, suspended matter, heavy metals, pesticides, etc.), which make it difficult to treat them. Similarly, the conference will show that the capacities of the Kingdom of Morocco to develop the most significant projects in terms of seawater desalination, which have been concretized by the launch of the largest seawater desalination plant in Africa and the World. This is to meet the growing demand for this fundamental and vital substance and its scarcity in certain regions of the country and which will make it possible to secure drinking water and irrigation needs.

The main themes related to this topic are listed below:

– Depollution techniques: Coagulation, Flocculation, Adsorption, etc.

– Desalination techniques: reverse osmosis and distillation, electrodialysis, …

– Synthesis of materials: coagulants, flocculants, adsorbents, reverse osmosis membranes, etc.

– Optimization of treatment processes

– Simulation and scale-up of processing units

The interest is focused on the corrosion phenomena that impact industrial activities by involving safety, but also the longevity of materials and installations. Possible prevention by corrosion inhibitors, cathodic protection, anti-corrosion coatings, thermomechanical treatments, etc. are the subject of research studies and continuous improvement. Follow-ups for characterization of the corrosive environment and materials or metallic elements are seeing considerable progress. The CIDEEV will also be the place to take stock of the innovative materials developed by the various research teams to respond to specific applications. Material treatment processes will be studied, such as : cataphoresis, pre-lacquering of steel sheets, non-metallic coatings, pre-lacquering of aluminum sheets, galvanizing, powder coating, liquid paint systems, electrochemical polymerization, inorganic films and protective hybrids obtained by the sol-gel process, thermomechanical anti-corrosion surface treatments, deep phosphating, anodizing of aluminum and its alloys, etc. Various materials, glasses, ceramics, plastics, composites, nanomaterials, porous materials and eco-materials are also studied.

The main themes related to this topic are listed below:

    • Advanced, innovative and sustainable materials and processes Numerical modeling of materials
    • Corrosion control and surface treatment
    • Development of new materials: Ceramics, glasses and polymers
    • Synthesis and characterization of catalysts and catalytic processes.

Green energy, which is more respectful of the environment, provides a sustainable solution to deal with the shortage of fossil fuels and also stem global warming. Wind turbines, photovoltaic panels, biomass, geothermal energy, etc., these new technologies are now an integral part of the landscape and contribute to producing clean electricity. After South Africa and Egypt, Morocco occupies 3rd place with 787 megawatts (MWatt). This is the cumulative installed capacity of wind energy recorded in Morocco between 2014 and 2015. The photovoltaic panels capture the sun’s rays and then transform them into electricity which is 100% ecological. The CIDEEV will echo the results of research on these new niches. This theme is also focused on “Functional Materials for Renewable Energy Technologies” to bring together people working in the field of green energy technologies, including:

    • batteries and supercapacitors
    • Solid state sodium-ion batteries and microbial fuel cells (MFC)
    • organic and inorganic photovoltaics
    • solar fuels and fuel cells
    • water splitting and photocatalysis
    • thermal and mechanical energy recovery
    • thermal insulation by biocomposite materials
    • materials for wind turbines.

The main themes related to this topic are listed below:

    • Development of renewable energies
    • Materials for energy and sustainable development
    • Bioenergy and biosourced materials
    • Hydrogen production, storage and use
    • Energy efficiency of industrial processes

Construction materials are considered to be all materials used for the construction of reinforced concrete structures or metal constructions and in the field of public works (roads, bridges, aerodromes, etc.). According to the composition and structure, the materials are classified into Metals and alloys – Polymers – Ceramics. They can also be called raw materials (Clays, stones, wood, limestone, metals) or products (cement: limestone + clay, alloys, concrete, etc.). According to the field of use and according to their main properties (Resistance, compactness, …), the materials are called upon to resist against stresses (dead weight, overload, earthquake ……): Stones, Terracotta, Wood, Concrete, Metals, etc. The range of physical properties that measure the behavior of materials under the action of temperature, humidity (density; density, porosity, absorption, permeability, shrinkage (swelling) etc, ) is very important. The behavior of materials deformed by the forces and the thermal properties are generally very studied.

The themes related to this topic are :

    • Recycled and secondary materials, geopolymer concrete, concrete/steel composites
    • Physical properties and performance of building materials
    • Treatment of materials, mechanisms of degradation
    • Fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix and green building technologies


Best papers, in a relevant theme, will be invited to submit the final version to Special Issue Journals in some of the following journal list:
