The Scope and Topics of the Conference

The conference is intended to cover a broad range of pressing environmental issues related to characterization and remediation of PFAS and other emerging contaminants such as 1,4-dioxane, chlorinated solvents, perchlorate, and pharmaceuticals. Contaminated site management and sustainable approaches for remediation of soil and groundwater will also be covered by this conference. Abstracts are being solicited in the following related areas:

  • Site Characterization of PFAS and other Emerging Contaminants
  • Contaminated Site Management in Europe
  • Sustainable Approaches for Remediation of Soil and Groundwater
