AIKEN, S.C., June 2 -- Approximately 200 professionals from across the United States and Canada will meet in Columbia, South Carolina, June 3-5 to share information on innovative and cost-effective environmental cleanup techniques.
The conference-the Environmental Restoration Technology End Users Conference will be at the Sheraton Columbia Convention Center. It is sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE), the Department of Defense, and the Environmental Protection Agency (Region IV).
The event will feature panel sessions, workshops and presentation on various environmental technologies, to include passive and natural remediation, cost-effective process control, and electronic management techniques.
Participants will also share accelerated cleanup successes and technical innovations from DOE and other federal facilities.
"Participants in the earlier conferences have agreed that it's a valuable tool to spread the use of new, effective and economical cleanup methods," said Alice Doswell, DOE's Acting Assistant Manager for Environment, Science and Technology at the Savannah River Site. "Successful, cost-effective cleanup technology is what everyone is looking for, both in government and the private sector."
