Across the borders of the Nordic countries, we have a common interest and openness regarding development inside and outside the Nordic region. This is also true when it comes to remediation of contaminated sites.
The Nordic countries have large natural and demographic variations. This has led to differences in approach and focus of the efforts to remediate contaminated sites. For instance, the efforts to protect drinking water from contamination are heavily affected by the areas dependence on supplies from respectively groundwater and surface water. Therefore we have developed knowledge about different parts of the field of remediation of contaminated sites and this gives us a great opportunity to learn from each other.
During the recent years, we have seen an ambitious clean ocean policy which will give us a sea food consumption with no or low risk as a long term purpose. During NORDROCS 2012 we will share our experiences on these subjects as well as on the technical aspects of remediating contaminated sites and sediments.
At NORDROCS 2012 we will cover a wide range of aspects of the work with contaminated sites and sediments. During the main sessions, we will have the opportunity to get brushed up with the latest developments and technology, as well as lessons learned in the case where the project went in another direction as intended. You will also find four interesting short courses, an exhibition of posters, an exhibition from companies working in the field of remediation of contaminated sites and an excursion/city walk in the remediated area around Oslo Opera House.
