Sustainable land development requires that societies remediate contaminated sites to restore their value to the environment (ecosystems), society and economy. Increasing reuse options of sites to incorporate them back into a city’s fabric and recovery of damaged areas (e.g. mining sites) and the ecosystem services are vital for a sustainable world (Vision 2050 see www.wbcsd.org).
The Sustainable Remediation Conference 2014 aims to stimulate international exchange by providing a venue for professionals and interested parties from multiple backgrounds to share experiences and perspectives on how contaminated sites can be remediated with a lower environmental footprint, and how their reuse can contribute to a more sustainable land development.
The event builds on the Green Remediation Conference (Copenhagen, November 2009), the 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Remediation (Vienna, November 2012) and discussions alongside at ConSoil 2010 & 2013 as well as through virtual events hosted by US EPA.
