2019 Bioremediation Symposium

  • Dates:
    Apr 15
     - 
    Apr 18, 2019
  • Location: Baltimore, MD, U.S.
  • Address: Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor

The Fifth International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences, and opportunities associated with advances in bioremediation and green and sustainable practices in remediation. 

Battelle is the organizer and host of the symposium. Our mission is to translate scientific discovery and technology advances into societal benefits. One way we fulfill that mission is by bringing together the world’s best scientists and researchers at the Bioremediation Symposium to help solve difficult environmental challenges. 

Where to Find Us

Stop by Booth #128 to learn more about how Battelle is advancing the science of remediation, especially as it relates to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

You also can find our experts at a number of other locations.
