May 22-25, 2017 | Miami, Florida
The Fourth International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies will be held May 22-25, 2017. The Symposium headquarters hotel will once again be the Hyatt Regency Miami Hotel. Located at 400 SE Second Avenue on the scenic Riverwalk in the heart of bustling downtown Miami, the Hyatt overlooks the Miami River and Florida’s famed Biscayne Bay. It is conveniently located—near the Port of Miami, Bayside Marketplace and American Airlines Arena and 15 minutes from South Beach. The Hyatt is within easy walking distance of the nightlife, shopping, sports and other attractions that bring people to “America’s Riviera.”
The technical program will present information on advances in bioremediation and the incorporation of green and sustainable remediation (GSR) practices in remediation in a series of technology-focused sessions. The development and use of advanced tools for assessing and monitoring bioremediation and natural attenuation, as well as the challenges of applying bioremediation at various types of complex sites and under extreme climatic conditions, will be considered. Several sessions will address biodegradation of emerging contaminants and biofuels and the evaluation and mitigation of vapor intrusion.
A series of sessions will cover biodegradation and remediation of crude oil in various environments and the management of petroleum hydrocarbon sites. Innovative biological processes and applications for pollution prevention and waste management will be addressed. GSR practices will be discussed as they apply to all stages of remediation, from remedy selection and optimization to long-term monitoring and management strategies. Sessions will address the adaptation of remediation systems to climate change, international perspectives on GSR, and the factors that affect the implementation of bioremediation in various regions of the world. In addition, several sessions will focus on munitions response and remediation of munitions constituents.
