8th Annual International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments

Battelle Memorial Institute
January 12-15, 2015
New Orleans, Louisiana

Battelle's 8th Annual International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments is the event for environmental engineers, scientists, and industry professionals from across the globe to share research results, practical experiences, and opportunities toward the goal of remediating, restoring, and maintaining the environmental and economic vitality of waterways. The program will reflect the growing knowledge that better management of contaminated sediment systems is the key to success.
