The Introduction to Sustainable Remediation webinar introduces sustainable remediation concepts and applications, including green remediation.
Sustainable remediation integrates the “triple bottom line” of sustainability, the environmental, social and economic aspects, into cleanup projects. Experienced practitioners from the US Sustainable Remediation Forum (“SURF”) providing the webinar will define sustainable remediation and its application to reduce the environmental footprint of remediation projects while also benefiting the surrounding community and its economy. The webinar illustrates sustainable remediation with case examples describing its practices during the investigation, remediation, operations, and monitoring of hazardous site cleanups. The webinar also explains the drivers behind sustainable remediation and what prompts responsible parties to integrate these concepts into their cleanup programs. This introductory webinar is designed to benefit remediation practitioners including consultants, contractors and regulators who are interesting in this developing area of the remediation industry.
Sustainable Remediation Forum Overview
The Sustainable Remediation Forum (SURF) promotes the use of sustainable practices during the investigation, construction, remediation, redevelopment, and monitoring of environmental cleanup sites, with the objective of balancing economic viability, conservation of natural resources and biodiversity, and the enhancement of the quality of life in surrounding communities. SURF was founded in 2005 and has been instrumental in developing the practice of sustainable remediation, including the publication of numerous white papers and technical articles.
Attendees will receive a PDF containing workshop proceedings and reference material.
This course is designed for contractors, regulators, inspectors, managers, planners, scientists, and anyone interested in learning more about green and sustainable remediation practices. Anyone who practices any type of remediation, or who deals with those who conduct inspection and/or remediation will benefit from the material in this course.
