CL:AIRE and r3 environmental technology are delivering a Concawe Project (www.concawe.eu) called “Case Studies and Analysis of Sustainable Remediation Techniques and Technologies”.
We are seeking relevant case studies of sustainable remediation techniques and technologies, with a specific focus on European examples. Concawe is particularly interested in gentle (or low intensity) remediation options. By sharing case studies the project aims to encourage uptake of these options at sites where they are suitable.
The EUSO has announced the first Young Soil Researchers Forum. This call is open to young scientists from all over the world, with a special focus on soil research carried out in Europe and the event is targeted at PhD students or those who finished their PhD no longer than 3 years ago.
They are planing a 2.5 hour meeting with up to six parallel sessions targeting specific themes with 10 presentations (8 min + 2 min questions) and 30-minutes final discussion. Session themes will be assigned based on abstract submissions. All aspects of soil research are welcome (soil biodiversity, erosion, pollution, nutrients, urban soils, compaction, etc.).
A new British Standard has been published: BS EN ISO 12404:2021 Soil and waste - Guidance on the selection and application of screening methods.
It provides guidance on the selection and application of screening methods for assessing soil quality and waste characterisation, including distribution of target parameters in soil and soil‑like material. The aim of the document is to set up criteria as to when the different kind of screening methods can be applied for the analysis of a certain parameter in soil, including soil‑like material, and waste, and which steps are required to prove their suitability.
