Sustainable remediation is the practice of considering environmental, social, and economic impacts when restoring contaminated sites to productive use. During ConSoil 2010 (September 22-24, 2010, in Salzburg, Austria) a special session entitled "Sustainable Remediation: International Developments" will take place, focusing on the state of international implementation of sustainable environmental remediation (www.consoil.de). On July 12th, an interactive Internet Seminar will be hosted as a primer to the ConSoil session, wherein international leaders of sustainable and green remediation efforts will discuss their drivers and constraints as well as the impacts of these opportunities and issues on their efforts. An open forum will be held after the presentations in which participants will be able to submit questions to the speakers. The panel will include representatives from the following organizations: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); Environment Canada; Sustainable Remediation Forum (SURF) United States, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands; EURODEMO+; Network for Industrially Contaminated Land in Europe (NICOLE); and the Common Forum on Soil Framework Directive.
