NICOLE Workshop "Nature Based Remediation" - Frankfurt, Germany - 20-22 June 2018
Published by DSBP, April 30, 2018
From 20 - 22 June 2018 the NICOLE Spring Workshop 2018 will be held at Infraserv Höchst, in the Höchst Industry Park in Frankfurt.
Nature Based Remediation
For a long time industrial processes have impacted the quality of soil and water across the globe. Beside the positive remedial effects, efforts to decontaminate or remediate these sites are often both costly and time-consuming. Natural processes in the (sub)soil and water have turned out to play a key role in a number of more cost-effective and sustainable alternatives to traditional intrusive remediation technologies. Frequently it is the soil-water-sediment system itself that can achieve remedial goals. Natural resources and processes offer significant potential to contain and degrade soil and (ground)water pollutants.
Increasingly, remediation technologies are being inspired and supported by working with ‘nature’ instead of fighting against it. We recognise nature’s value and incorporate nature based remediation strategies to create an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable process.
