CleanUp 2019 – the 8th International Contaminated Site Remediation Conference incorporating the 2nd International PFAS Conference

Adelaide, Australia
Organization: CRCCARE
Categories: Science
Event Date: 2019-09-08 to 2019-09-12 Abstract Due: 2019-04-30

The global forum for all aspects of contaminated site assessment, management and remediation, including the latest on PFAS.

With outstanding scientific and educational programs across the two conferences, the program blends research and industry best practice, drawing on experience from Australian and international markets. More than 700 delegates are expected to converge on the Adelaide Convention Centre, coming from all relevant areas of government, research and industry.

This highly respected, not-to-be-missed conference is an excellent opportunity to share expertise and make connections.


Prospective authors/presenters are invited to submit original works that contribute to the theory or practice of remediation, including the proposal of new methodologies, new research directions and new approaches or schemes for current existing issues.
