The exhibition will put on display new waste-to-energy technologies and equipments for waste collection, treatment, landfill and composting, transport vehicles, recycling systems, environmental monitoring & protection services, etc. The Conference program will include the following sessions: Waste prevention, Recycling/Resource Recovery, Energy and resource recovery, Landfilling and Environmental aspects of waste treatment technologies.
Environmental issues are highly prioritized in the worldwide agenda and are also a priority theme for South-East Europe. The countries from the Region are in need of expertise, technology products and equipment. 'Save the Planet' will present the latest solutions in waste management, recycling and environment and will encourage the foreign investments and creation of public-private partnerships. The exhibition and the parallel conference will gather representatives of business, public authorities and institutions involved in these sectors.
This is a comprehensive course that provides a solid theoretical and practical foundation in contaminated site management. The Course has been developed especially for individuals who manage, regulate, investigate, remediate, or are impacted by contaminated sites. Managing these sites is a multidisciplinary task, therefore, integrating several disciplines is necessary to efficiently and economically manage or make decisions regarding site issues.
- 5 days of in-depth discussions by 15 leading environmental, soil, sediment and groundwater experts representing academia, consulting, and government from across North America. These experts will provide a comprehensive overview of hydrogeology and geochemical principles, site assessment procedures, risk assessment and risk management tools, remediation technologies, and management issues relating to contaminated and hazardous waste sites.
- 2 Evening optional computer based workshops on computer modelling and environmental management support software. The workshops will start on the Monday night and will incorporate established and innovative computer modelling and support software used in groundwater characterization and remediation; risk assessment; environmental decision support; and contaminated site management.
- 1,200 page edited notebook and access to resource folder.
- 1 half-day of outdoor hands-on technical demonstrations on Site Characterization and Remediation Technologies and Techniques used in sampling and monitoring programs.
Course participants will receive theoretical and practical foundations, as well as important information regarding regulatory compliance aspects of contaminated site management. This knowledge will be coupled with a hands-on approach to understanding the tools and techniques for managing contaminated sites. Some experience is helpful, but not necessary, as the Course teaches basic principles before addressing more advanced topics.
This is the only one week indoor-outdoor course being offered globally that covers all issues related to managing subsurface contamination, from theory to practice. The Course's 15 instructors are from academia, private industry, and government in North America and are recognized as leading experts and teachers in their respective fields. These instructors will provide students with access to a broad base of practical experience and an excellent opportunity to network with leading professionals.
Regardless of your level of expertise, the combination of information presented during this Course will not be found elsewhere and will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to effectively manage contaminated sites. This Course will provide participants with the competitive edge required in this rapidly evolving field. For more information, please visit: www.contaminatedsite.com
Keep your dog on a lead if it is likely to run off and disturb wildlife.
In particular, be careful of nesting birds in early spring and early summer, and roosting or feeding birds in winter. If you have a dog, keep this in mind when you're taking it for a walk!
