Reshaping Energy 2017: Opportunities and Impacts of Reducing Canadian GHG Emissions

Go to  http://geoenviropro.com/events/risk-solutions/ for submissions (platform and poster) for low risk sites (Protocol 6 reviews) and high risk sites (to secure instruments, under Orders, for due diligence/liability reduction, etc.). Get the word out about your novel solutions and technical advancements in RA/RM. Come and learn about how RA/RM of contamination results in meeting regulatory requirements. Whether you are a site owner, project manager, regulator or service provider – there will be content for you, as well as opportunities to mingle. Registration
