The Scope of the Conference

The 2020 – Contaminated Site Management in Europe (CSME-2020) is directed at understanding and effectively managing the complex nature of sites contaminated with organic and inorganic constituents. Effective contaminated site management necessitates balancing a number of overlapping and interrelated factors including technical, legal, regulatory, societal and business (economic) issues. Contamination creates impacts; impacts drive liabilities. There have been significant advancements in our understanding of contaminated sites and in our abilities to effectively manage them. This conference seeks to provide a comprehensive forum to discuss these advancements.
