Over the last decade, many sectors of industrialized society have been
rethinking behavior and re-engineering practices to reduce consumption of
energy and natural resources. That includes site owners, regulators,
academics, and remediation specialists.  This has led to the evolution of
sustainable site environmental remediation practices from conceptual
discussions to standard operating procedures.

The Sustainable Remediation webinar will be a fast paced overview of
Sustainable Remediation that includes industry, government, and
consultancy perspectives.  You will hear how different organizations are
working to incorporate societal and economic considerations into
environmental cleanup projects. We will attempt to make some sense of the
efforts that are being made to collaborate, educate, advance, and develop
consensus on the application of sustainability concepts throughout the
lifecycle of remediation projects, from site investigation to closure.

Speakers will include site owners, state and federal regulators,
environmental remediation engineer, lawyer, and a remediation technology
developer.  See full list below:
