In collaboration with The institution of environmental sciences (IES), we are hosting an afternoon discussion meeting (1.30 to 4.30pm) on the 18th February at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.
With a new British Standard ‘Taking soil samples for determination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) — Specification’ scheduled for publication in 2019, BSSS and IES have decided to organise an informal half day event to discuss VOCs in soil in the context of contaminated land investigation and remediation.
The event will be free to members of both societies with industry and regulator speakers giving their perspectives on the topic and providing a platform for discussion and networking.
The draft programme is available here
The event is aimed at the broadest membership so student members interested in a career in the industry as well as established practitioners and researchers are all welcome.
