On November 7th 2011 the SNOWMAN network held a conference on Monitored Natural Attenuation in Paris.
MNA is a well known remediation method, but presents a challenge in terms of technique and performance, fitting into soil policy, the sociological impact and the financial and legal implications.
Among the various SNOWMAN network countries there are significant differences in implementation. SNOWMAN network is preparing an inventory of these differences as well as of recent research projects and projects in which MNA has been applied. Using this state-of-the-art information and some thematic key presentations, we want to share views and experiences during this unique day of knowledge exchange.
This conference is a first demonstration of how the SNOWMAN network wants to facilitate the exchange of knowledge on soil remediation between countries. This first step will be followed by a webinar in 2012 in order to give exchange knowledge and information to a broader audience.
