The objective of the conference is to bring together scientists, engineers and other environmental professionals to present their findings and discuss future trends, directions and new challenges for the restoration of contaminated sites and marine environments.

The presentations are expected to focus on the technological advances of bioremediation treatment processes for all types of media (air, soil, sediment, surface water, groundwater and industrial wastewater) contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated and other recalcitrant compounds, as well as on techniques for the microbiological, genetic and ecotoxicological monitoring of such processes. Innovative and low cost solutions through an integrated technological approach are also invited.

In-situ bioremediation of contaminated soil and groundwater
Bioremediation of sites contaminated with oils and PAHs
Bioremediation of sites contaminated with chlorinated and other recalcitrant compounds
Ex-situ bioremediation of contaminated soils, sludges and industrial wastewaters
