Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020, 10:00–13:45

The joint Society of Brownfield Risk Assessment (SoBRA) and Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) SoBRA 2020 Winter Conference & AGM is a great opportunity to learn more about the current issues in contaminated-land risk assessment. It will feature presentations and discussions from the SoBRA subgroups and external speakers from the contaminated-land industry. RSK is delighted to be hosting the event this year, which will be virtual for the first time, and to be supporting the work of SoBRA. One of the keynote speakers is Nigel Marriott, author of the recent CL:AIRE publication Professional Guidance: Comparing Soil Contamination Data with a Critical Concentration, for which RSK was represented on the steering group.

SoBRA was established in 2009 to support the growing number of professionals who work in land-contamination risk assessment. A registered charity, it is a learned society for individuals with membership drawn from the private, public, voluntary and academic sectors. With more than 450 members, its goal is to improve technical knowledge in risk-based decision making related to land-contamination applications and to enhance the professional status and profile of practitioners. RSK Associate Technical Director Joanna Wilding currently sits on the SoBRA Executive Committee, while members of RSK’s geosciences business sit on the cross-industry subgroups. More than 100 attendees usually join the annual winter conference, which is normally held at the RSC in London, UK.

At the virtual conference, speakers will include Hannah White, SoBRA Chair; Kate Jones, RSC Toxicology Group; Nigel Marriott, Marriott Statistical Consulting; Martin Rose, independent consultant; and Simon Cole, SoBRA incoming chair. It will feature updates from the SoBRA subgroups, including updates from RSK’s Mel Lyons for the vapour intrusion subgroup and from David Holmes of RSK company Ecologia for the non-aqueous phase liquids subgroup.
