Why you should join this event

The Bioremediation Symposium will help you to understand the benefits of bioremediation technologies and learn how to process bioremediation options in remediation options assessment. You will also develop treatment train concepts integrating biological technologies in remediation action plans.

The symposium will conclude with networking drinks to connect with your peers, exchange ideas and discuss what was learnt during the day.

At the Symposium, you will learn:

  • Handling bioremediation in options assessment
