ABOUT CONFERENCE


REMEDy is a conference on environmental issues that impact Poland. First established in 2018 by Lion Environmental sp. z o.o. , a consulting company, with the aim to address the different disciplines confronting environmental contamination found in soil, water, and groundwater. Conference participants include developers, land owners, laboratories, environmental consultants, law firms, and governmental regulators such as the General Directorate for Environmental Protection (GDOŚ), Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection (RDOŚ) and the National Water Management Authority – Polish Water (PGW PW). The conference focusses on regulatory requirements, legal understanding, and associated remedial methodologies for soil, water, and groundwater. The conference is an opportunity to discuss approaches to environmental issues from legal and technical perspectives along with those experiences from other markets; for example this year’s conference will look at Japan.

CONFERENCE PROGRAMME


The REMEDy conference will have three thematic sessions: national, international, and technological. At previous conferences the experiences from Canada, Italy, Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States were explored. Representatives of the Polish regulatory agencies spoke about pressing issues regarding regulations before the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection, General Directorate for Environmental Protection and the Institute for Ecology of Industry.

Participants at the conference can expect to hear about laws and regulations, new investigative and remedial technologies, related methods and practices that are typically used by environmental specialists in Poland and in other countries. Speakers at the conference present on topics connected to emergent chemical compounds and specific recalcitrant environmental contaminates not regulated by Polish Law. Past conferences have tackled such topics as asbestos in soil, and microplastic. This upcoming conference will include discussions on perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), compounds at the forefront of environmental protection.

The conference also includes Trade Exhibits that showcase laboratories, remedial solution companies and consultants. Conference participants get to interact at exhibitor’s booths during the scheduled breaks and Exhibitors get to meet one on one with those from the environmental industry, law firms, developers, and governmental agencies.
