The third edition of RemTech Expo, Remediation Technologies Exhibition and Conferences, took place in Ferrara, Italy, last September, with the auspices of various leading societies, including the IGS Italian Chapter (AGI-IGS).
RemTech Expo is an event entirely dedicated to remediation techniques and to territory requalification, the ideal place for meetings among operators, manufacturers, contractors, institutions, and academics to build together workable solutions for the environment.
More than 2,500 visitors attended the event, up 30% from 2008. At the end of the Opening Conference chaired by Daniele Cazzuffi, coordinator of the RemTech Scientific Committee and IGS immediate past president, the ceremony of the first RemTech Degree Awards took place. The awards were assigned to the six best theses discussed at Italian universities and related to reclamation technologies.
The exhibition hall included more than 110 booths, including 12 specifically for geosynthetics manufacturers, distributors, and applicators. About 30 technical sessions were organized by the exhibitors, all well attended.
The Proceedings of the International Symposium on Contaminated Soils and Sediments are available on a CD-ROM (containing 42 papers in English for a total of 336 pages) by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next edition of RemTech will take place in September 2010.
