This full-day workshop is based around two of the guidelines within the National Remediation Framework (NRF), which has recently gained recognition and support from EPAs
Whether you work in any level of government, in research, for an organisation that owns contaminated sites, or are an environmental consultant, this workshop offer invaluable understanding, including:

This full-day workshop is based around two of the guidelines within the National Remediation Framework (NRF), which has recently gained recognition and support from EPAs. The two NRF guidelines are:
- Guideline on establishing remediation objectives
- Guideline on performing cost-benefit and sustainability analysis of remediation options.
The workshop's establishing remediation objectives component will provide a thorough understanding of the topic including how to set up objectives towards a roadmap towards site closure.
The cost-benefit and sustainability analysis (CBSA) component will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the CBSA process, practical applications for the technique, and the use of the accompanying Excel tool. This part of the workshop will focus on practical exercises and real-world examples to provide the skills to implement the technique in the workplace. By completion, attendees will feel confident in their understanding of the technique, know when and how to apply it, be confident using the tool, and be able to interpret the results or review the work of others.
To maximise the learning potential of the group, attendees will participate in group exercises and share their knowledge and experience.

Who should attend
The workshop is aimed at people who have no experience conducting CBSA or other economic analyses, but it is assumed that attendees will have mid-level knowledge of the contaminated sites industry. The content will be of interest to regulators, industry professionals and consultants who are required to perform, review and interpret CBSAs. The workshop includes a strong practical component and attendees are required to bring a laptop computer (and charger) to fully participate.
