In this one day symposium, following the successful inaugural bioremediation symposium in 2022, local and international experts will gather to share knowledge and develop strategies for remediation practitioners and clients in Australia and New Zealand to benefit from integrating biological processes into their site clean-up ambitions. Encompassing a broad spectrum of contaminants and contaminated matrices, the event will consist of keynote presentations, short case study presentations and interactive workshops, followed by networking drinks.

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
- Strategies for integrating bioprocesses in treatment trains
- Technical knowledge and products relating to bioremediation application
- Approaches to troubleshooting
