Experts expound on remediation

ONE OF THE MANY attractions for visitors to Civils 2000 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham in May will be the Delivering Remediation Solutions conference.

The one-day conference, on 25 May, will discuss the implications of the new Environment Act Part II (a) that came into force at the beginning of April. It aims to give genuine insight into the problems of contamination and the innovative solutions and working practices being developed to combat them.

A panel of experts from client bodies, consultants and contractors will explain the impact on business and how practitioners can optimise commercial opportunities under the new regime, defining new duties and methods to capture the anticipated flood of work.

Subjects covered will include: placing the Environment Agency's role in context; examining risk assessment and liability; case studies demonstrating real problems and real solutions; assessing the volume of opportunity; and client needs.

Speakers include Dr Mark Kibblewhite, head of Land Quality at the Environment Agency; Peter Smith of Arthur Andersen; Mike Summersgill of VHE Technology and Professor Steffan Jefferis from University of Surrey.

Delegate cost is £295 + vat. To register, or for more information, tel +44 (0)20 7505 8564; fax +44 (0)20 7505 8566; or
