Korea is one of the fast developed countries, and the soil and groundwater have been contaminated during the development. Since 1996, the Korean government enacted the Soil Environment Conservation Act and has managed the soil quality. Additionally, the government has supported the R&D through Geo-Advanced Innovative Action(GAIA) project to develop site remediation and management technologies. Thus, Korea has a lot of experiences on the investigation, remediation, and management of contaminated sites.

CleanUp is the world’s leading scientific conference series dedicated to the assessment, prevention and remediation of the chemical contamination of our planet. Operating since 2007, it has attracted worldwide audiences from academia, industry, government and the wider community to discuss and showcase the latest ideas and technologies for cleaning up the contaminated environments that are a legacy of past and present industrial development.

It is past time for scientists, engineers, regulators and industry to find practical ways to restore the Earth. CleanUp conferences offer an international forum for the best ideas, insights, and scientific developments to be shared as we build a pathway to a cleaner world.

In December 2019, Korea will host its first CleanUp Conference in Korea. The event will bring together Korean and international experts under one roof to seek the best clean-up solutions for both the public and private sectors.
