The partners of the CityChlor project are proud to present the final conference of their project on May 16 and 17 2013 in Ghent, Belgium. In the CityChlor project 9 partners from 4 European regions worked together to develop an integrated approach for pollution with chlorinated solvents in urban environments.

Environmental experts, consultants, policy-makers, urban planners and city representatives are invited to the conference that will present the results of the joint work of different disciplines in plenary sessions. Specific topics as techniques for characterization and remediation, urban planning, financing and communication will be treated in detail in parallel technical sessions.

Registration is now open and should be done before April 30. The complete programme and all practical information can be found on the CityChlor website.

Workshop CityChlor 'Integrating in situ remediation techniques with land use cycles', 19 oktober 2011, Utrecht - The Netherlands

Developments in in situ remediation techniques for the treatment of soil and groundwater contamination allow these techniques to be integrated into site redevelopment plans. This workshop provides the opportunity to discuss the possibilities of in situ remediation, see their practical application at sites, and debate what is still needed.

Speakers include experts in the field of land use cycles, researchers on chemical and biological remediation techniques, developers of in situ remediation technologies, and specialists on redevelopment at Utrecht Central Station.
