"In Situ Remediation '14" was an international conference organised and presented by CL:AIRE at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London on 2nd - 4th September 2014 . Combining 2-days of presentations and a third day of thematic workshop, the conference presented and discussed the latest scientific research, technical advances and innovations in the management, assessment and sustainable in situ remediation of contaminated land and groundwater.

The conference brought together leading scientists, researchers and environmental professionals working in the field, and offered an unrivalled opportunity to exchange ideas, share experiences, gain exposure to the latest developments and network with experts from around the world. The programme of keynote presentations, platform talks and posters covered scientific, management and technological aspects. A half day workshop was held on the third day hosted by Geosyntec Consultants on "In Situ Remediation of Contaminanted Sites".

Conference Themes

  • Urban groundwater contamination and emerging contaminants – investigation, monitoring and management
  • Natural attenuation and engineered in situ bioremediation
  • Fate and transport of contaminants in the vadose zone
  • Novel methods for the assessment of in situ remediation processes and performance
  • Permeable reactive barriers, in situ chemical oxidation, enhanced abiotic and thermal treatment technologies
  • Sustainability assessments of in situ remediation technologies, including economic aspects and feasibility studies

This conference is organised within the framework of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network ADVOCATE - Advancing sustainable in situ remediation for contaminated land and groundwater, funded by the European Commission, Marie Curie Actions Project No. 265063.
