Upcoming Internet Seminars
Screening, Testing, and Application of Residuals and Byproducts for Remediation
December 2, 2015 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
This webinar in the CLU-IN mining webinar series is a follow-on to the seminar presented on July 24, 2014 on Using Biosolids and Coal Combustion Products for Soil Remediation at Mining Sites. The presenter will continue the discussion on using coal combustion products for soil remediation at mining sites, as well as discuss his recent research on screening and testing residuals, such as waste lime, gypsum, and paper mill sludge, for application on contaminated lands. Presentations will include case study data and findings that are supported by publications available from the presenter and collaborators' website www.landrehab.org.
NAAMLP 37th Annual Conference
September 28-30, 2015 | Santa Fe, New Mexico
The National Association of Abandoned Mine Land Programs (NAAMLP) is a non-profit organization whose members include 31 States and Tribes conducting abandoned mine reclamation programs under the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977. This year's conference is hosted by the New Mexico and Navajo Nation AML Programs. The conference provides a venue to showcase reclamation successes and cutting edge technology on a national scale. Over 300 people from all over the country are expected to attend this conference. Subject matter includes: cutting edge reclamation techniques from across the country; geomorphic reclamation; revegetation research and success stories; hardrock safeguarding methods; bat habitat and preservation; the latest in GPS and GIS technologies; and others.
Remediation Technologies Symposium 2015
October 14-16, 2015 | Alberta, Canada
The Remediation Technologies Symposium 2015 is a remediation technology transfer event for environmental professionals, encompassing the latest innovations in soil and groundwater remediation. Some topic areas and case studies presented will include in-situ and ex-situ treatment methods, biological and non-biological treatment, thermal desorption, encapsulation, natural attenuation, multi-phase extraction, solar detoxification, electrochemical remediation, pre-treatment considerations, phytoremediation, environmental management, hydrocarbon and salt contamination, stabilization and containment, commercial situations, membrane technology, and unique and challenging locations.
SETAC North America 36th Annual Meeting
November 1-5, 2015 | Salt Lake City, Utah
SETAC North America is a Geographic Unit of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). SETAC North America is dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of stressors, chemicals and technology on the environment. Abstracts for its 36th Annual Meeting are currently being accepted. The meeting will feature presentations on: molecular and cellular biology as they relate to environmental toxicology and chemistry; hazard and risk assessment, and environment/human health related issues; contributions to an understanding of ecological risk assessment and environmental hazards, including use and validation of mammalian models and systems; ethical issues related to environmental toxicology and chemistry and risk assessment; and others. Stay tuned for more details.
American Society of Mining and Reclamation National Conference
June 4-10, 2016 | Spokane, Washington
The American Society of Mining and Reclamation holds an annual meeting to facilitate technology transfer and information exchange between academic professionals, practicing reclamation specialists in the field, students, and all other interested persons.
