The main objectives are to transmit knowledge on contaminated site management, existing remediation techniques used, innovative approach to contaminated site remediation using integrated technologies, monitoring of parameters of treatment technologies and their control. Another part is aimed to explanation of use of an integrated tool for evaluation of efficiency of treatment techniques and evaluation of quality of treated groundwater and soil or other materials (chemical analysis, ecotoxicity, physical parameters). Methods for determination of technological parameters needed for remediation process control will be highlighted. Basic principles of natural attenuation, enhance attenuation will be discussed.
