Topic 4 - Integrated management of contaminated land


Integrated management of contaminated land

This theme has the objective to discuss novel frontrunning strategies and integrated management of contaminated land and brownfields. There are many technical, socio-economical and legal barriers to start remediation or redevelopment and to bring these sites back into beneficial use, which calls for an integrated approach. How can these barriers be overcome and what are the drivers of change? Especially welcome are case studies (brownfields and megasites “2.0”: ports, industrial and urban areas in a circular economy context).

Topics under this theme are:

4a) Managing pollution in the water-soil-energy-food-nexus

4b) Area-based risk approaches, uncertainties and scales of pollution pathways

4c) Upgrading contaminated and degraded land
