The participant of this two-day conference can learn about the global trends of remediation and the frameworks and developments of different national programmes.

Registration for our event will start soon!

We will present methods on how to deal with environmental problems at winding-up of dissolving companies.

We will present also the most up-to-date technological solutions on the field of pollutant measuring and sampling, remediation techniques and provide an opportunity to introduce the results of surveying the environmental and health-related risks of the abandoned, polluted industrial areas and the results of sustainable rehabilitation.

In addition to the eminent representatives of science, professional organizations, experts and enterprises engaged in the exploration and construction of contaminated sites, companies, state actors, official and legislative specialists with such sites will present modern methods of decontamination and subsequent rehabilitation of damaged, contaminated sites.

In addition to presenting international and national R&D results and good examples, we will also visit a current brownfield action area to see what needs to be done for rehabilitation. 

Presentations are invited on the following topics:

  • presenting research and innovation projects, research results from academies, universities and other research centers
