                          The 4th International Conference on Soil Pollution and Remediation(SOILREM 2012) 


The 2nd International Workshop on Site Remediation(SITEREM 2012)


September 24-26, 2012  Yantai city, Shandong Province, P. R. China

(1st Conference Circular)



Site/soil pollution is a widely-concerned environmental issue over the world. Much effort has been made on solution to sustainable use and management of the polluted soil environment. The SOILREM 2012 & SITEREM 2012 conference/workshop will provide an opportunity for industry, regulators, scientists, students, engineers, private and public sectors to present recent research findings and to exchange information on innovative developments relating to sustainable remediation of polluted soils, sediments, groundwater, and industrial sites.


The SOILREM 2012 & SITEREM 2012 follow the very successful SITEREM 2010, SOILREM 2008, SOILREM 2004 and SOILREM 2000 conferences held in Nanjing and Hangzhou in the past decades. The coming SOILREM 2012 & SITEREM 2012 will be held from 24-26 September, 2012 in Yantai, China.
