There is a growing awareness that the ecosystem services of soil are of major importance to (the quality of) life. The EU started initiatives like the EU Soil Strategy and the upcoming Soil Health Law proposition in 2023. Industry and site owners are evolving their approach to transforming soil liabilities into actual assets in an impactful and cost effective way as well.
Sustainable soil remediation can offer (industrial) organizations and site owners many benefits, as it can be more cost-effective, can have less damaging effects on biodiversity and have less impact on the carbon footprint. We can say there is a momentum to change the way we are dealing with soil and groundwater related issues.
TAUW has taken a leading role in this shift towards a more holistic approach to soil remediation. We are therefore looking forward to having you take part in our upcoming webinar regarding ‘Sustainability in soil & groundwater remediation’.
Through practical experiences, our TAUW experts will present information on:
Given the importance of authorities in the discussion and possibilities of implementing sustainable remediations, a speaker from a regional environmental administration (Nick Bruneel, Project Coordinator at the department Soil Management of OVAM, Flanders) will present how authorities can approach this evolution. OVAM is recognized as a front runner on sustainable waste and materials policy, soil management and transition to a circular economy.
Furthermore, there will be presentations on EU Soil Regulatory (chair of Regulatory Working Group NICOLE - Program Director at TAUW) and 3 pitches on projects that are practical and distinctive on sustainability indicators within soil and groundwater services.
