Ninth International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments

January 9-12, 2017 | New Orleans, Louisiana

The Ninth International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments will be conducted January 9-12, 2017, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Like the previous conferences in this series, it is presented and organized by Battelle. Sponsors include other leading organizations active in site remediation research and application.

The Sediments Conference series is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences, and opportunities associated with remediating, restoring and managing the environmental and economic vitality of waterways. Maintaining the viability of these aquatic systems requires complex actions that affect a diverse group of stakeholders and raise a wide range of environmental, economic, political and social issues.

The breadth and depth of the technical program, combined with ample opportunities to meet and engage with other environmental professionals, will make participation in the Conference a valuable investment for you and your organization. The Conference will provide a robust technical program as well as the opportunity to network with environmental professionals from around the world. Attendance is expected to be more than 1,000 scientists, engineers, regulators, and other environmental professionals representing universities, government site management and regulatory agencies, and R&D and manufacturing firms from 30 countries.
