1. Remediation Tour

Delegates registered for this full-day tour will visit contaminated sites undergoing assessment, remediation and/or management in Melbourne, a remediation facility, and will enjoy guided tours by local experts.

EnviroPacific Services are currently constructing a hazardous soil facility at their licensed site at Altona VIC. The soil facility will offer the contaminated land industry and broader waste market a nationally recognised outlet for their solid and liquid waste streams. The facility will be a thermal unit for the destruction of persistent organic pollutants and other compounds including chlorinated hydrocarbons and PFAS.

The tour will provide the delegates an opportunity to

  • visit and tour Victoria’s newest hazardous waste and soil facility under construction
  • walk through future waste storage sheds and observe the emission control systems before they go live
  • meet with expert thermal treatment managers
  • understand the process of thermal waste treatment.


HydroTerra will host the second part of the tour, which will include:

  • Contaminated in-fill development site in Newport, Melbourne. This will showcase: the use of Microbial Insights for doing methodological assessment before site works; the use of a trailer-mounted SV unit; manual and automated ground gas assessment; and discussions on monitored natural attenuation.
  • An ex-landfill site in the City of Casey employing the use of cutting-edge continuous gas monitoring equipment.

The tour will include some of the HydroTerra speakers from the conference sessions discussing their in situ technology .


Further details will be made available soon.
