Discussion session "The future of soil remediation in the eyes of our policymakers"

We have invited both the OVAM from Belgium and the Ministry of Infrastructure en Waterstate (I&W) from The Netherlands to talk about the future of soil remediation and policy trends in light of sustainability. Through a number of theses the audience is invited to engage in the discussion as to bridge the gap (if there is one) between policy and practical feasibility.

17:00-18:00 Drinks and Bites

Here a few of the comments we got after Remediation Day 2017:

  • "An excellent opportunity to see people of the industry again and catch up. Useful information on different scope of projects. Also interesting to hear from suppliers of technologies and not just consultants and contractors"
  • "Open communication, presentation of the good but also less satisfying results. Contamination and remediation needs a long term perspective"
  • "The content was very interesting and relatively new techniques were presented. Also the follow-up of successful cases like TCE come in handy when you're looking for solutions. Furthermore there was a good mixture of contractors, suppliers and consultants, with whom I had a useful exchange of experiences. Especially the do's en don'ts"
  • "An interesting mix of subjects, good discussion session"
