Battelle: Conference on Remediation of Contaminated Sediments Approaches (USA)
The Seventh International Conference on Remediation of Contaminated Sediments will be held February 4-7, 2013, at Dallas Hyatt Riverfront Hotel.
Maintaining the economic and biological viability of the environments of rivers, lakes, bays, and harbors requires management of complex series of actions related to accumulation in sediments of potentially hazardous contaminants, affecting a wide range of environmental, economic, and social issues.
The Sediments Conference is a forum for sharing experience and progress toward this goal. The Conference is organized and presented by Battelle and sponsored by public- and private-sector organizations active in environmental assessment, remediation, and management.
The Sixth Sediments Conference, held in New Orleans in February 2011, was attended by 1,100 scientists, engineers, regulators, remediation site owners, and other environmental professionals, representing universities, government agencies, consultants, and R&D and service firms from around the world.
