Brownfield and Contaminated Land 2009: Maximising the Value of Brownfield Land will take place on Wednesday, 13th May at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall. Organised in partnership with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA), it is the only regular risk assessment and remediation conference in Northern Ireland, covering niche topics and an overview of legislation - in particular the differences between legislation in Northern Ireland and that in the United Kingdom and Scotland.
The conference has become the must-attend event for the contaminated land industries in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, attended by consultants, environmental managers, environmental scientists, contaminated land officers, risk assessors and scientific officers. This year’s event will feature all the latest updates on risk assessment, site assessment and data management, sustainable remediation and maximising the value of brownfield land. There will be a strong emphasis on the practical application of remedial techniques, making better use of risk assessment and site investigation as well as contractual or tax issues.
