Program

Every two years, scientists, engineers, regulators and other environmental professionals representing universities, government (site management and regulatory agencies) and R&D and manufacturing firms from more than 20 countries gather for the diverse and inspiring program presented at this event. They also make the most of the many opportunities to network and catch up with fellow speakers and delegates.

The final program and proceedings for CleanUp 2017, 10–14 September, including an overview of the conference workshops, short courses, sessions, symposiums and site tours will be finalised in early 2017.
