  • Reclaim Expo Room C3 Pav.

Organized by: Ecomondo Technical Scientific Committee



20 years after the first organic Italian regulation for the remediation of contaminated sites and 13 years after the introduction of the D.lgs 1527/2006, it is perhaps time to critically discuss the limitations that did not allow the redevelopment of most of the Sites of National interest and many local sites. The experience accumulated in these years can allow to highlight the encountered most critical issues in order to suggest improvements that, brought to the current legislation, would allow to speed up and conclude the reclamation interventions. On the other hand, several "virtuous" examples, especially at the local level, can demonstrate how, also in accordance with current legislation, the correct interpretation of the rules, the constructive collaboration between the responsible of contamination and the Control Authorities, and the selection of the most appropriate remediation strategies / technologies could favor the conclusion of the proceedings and the redevelopment of the contaminated areas. From this point of view, the significant technological improvement of the last two decades (certainly not yet implemented by the current legislation), offers a wide range of solutions that would reduce the obstacles to the achievement of the remediation objectives. Environmental law experts, representatives of the industrial world, qualified operators and institutional representatives will be called upon to contribute their experience to the discussion. The conference will be open, through a Call for Papers, to the contribution of the sector operators who want to illustrate case studies representative of the opportunities and limitations offered by the current legislation.
