Bioremediation of Surface and Subsurface Contamination

An Engineering Foundation Conference Series

January 21-26, 1996
Sharaton Palm Coast Hotel
Palm Coast, Florida, USA


About This Conference

Conference Objectives: Bioremediation is regarded as a desirable means of restoration of contaminated sites. Substantial fundamental and applied research activity is currently taking place on the biodegradation of contaminants, development of engineering systems for bioremediation, and in understanding how the biological processes interact with the abiotic processes that take place in nature. The goal of this conference is to assess the state-of-the-art of different aspects of bioremediation, problems encountered at field-sites, and scale-up of solutions being generated at bench-scale with the objective of furthering critical developments and their utilization.

Conference Program

Preliminary Program

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
