RSK to host SoBRA winter conference and annual general meeting

November 25, 2020

RSK is delighted to be hosting the first virtual Society of Brownfield Risk Assessment (SoBRA) and Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) winter conference and annual general meeting, which will be held online on 2 December 2020. The joint annual conference is a great opportunity to learn more about the current issues in contaminated land risk assessment and will feature presentations and discussions from the SoBRA subgroups, as well as external speakers in the contaminated land industry. 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 on the steering group.

Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020

Time: 10:00-13:45

SoBRA was established in 2009 to support the growing number of professionals working 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 normally join the annual winter conference, which is usually held at the Royal Society of Chemistry in London, UK.

This year, the conference has gone virtual and will feature presentations from speakers Hannah White, current SoBRA chair; Kate Jones from RSC Toxicology Group; Nigel Marriott of Stats Consulting; Martin Rose, independent consultant; and Simon Cole, SoBRA in-coming chair. It will also feature updates from the SoBRA subgroups, including an update on the vapour intrusion subgroup from RSK’s Mel Lyons, as well as the NAPL subgroup from David Holmes of RSK company, Ecologia.
