BROWNFIELD REMEDIATION AND REUSE IN THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Our 2021 conference will take place online on the afternoons of 8th and 9th September.
Now accepting applications to speak at the conference. There are also opportunities to support the conference.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Scottish Contaminated Land Forum (SCLF) is pleased to announce its 11th annual conference, which will take place in the afternoons of 8th and 9th September 2021. Due to possible ongoing covid-19 restrictions, the conference this year will be held online.
The aim of the conference is to facilitate knowledge transfer in the land contamination sector. With COP26 in Glasgow rapidly approaching, the overall theme for this year’s event is brownfield remediation and reuse in the circular economy.
As a not for profit association, we would welcome your support of the conference.
The conference will have 4 sessions based on the following themes:
The circular economy as a driver for brownfield remediation
Nature based remediation solutions
Land contamination risk assessment and sustainability
Innovative, low- carbon sustainable remediation approaches
SCLF strives to deliver an interdisciplinary and diverse mix of presenters, with a broad spectrum of perspectives on the current state of land contamination knowledge. We are therefore inviting applications to speak at the event.
You can apply to do either a 20 minute presentation or a 5 minute lightning talk based on the conference themes above. Papers relating to other aspects of site characterisation and remediation including case studies may also be considered by the executive committee.
As a community conference, we are not able to reward speakers beyond the waiving of the conference admission fee.
We also are inviting companies and organisations to support the event so that we can make it happen!
Check back soon to get your ticket!!
