ConSoil is Europe´s largest conference on management of soil, groundwater and sediment. Organizers are the UFZ (Germany) and Deltares (The Netherlands).

The 11th International UFZ- Deltares/TNO Conference on Management of Soil, Groundwater and Sediment (ConSoil 2010) took place in Salzburg Congress, Austria, September 21-24.

This conference brought together parties from all aspects of the environmental cleanup community to exchange ideas and experiences on the management of soil, groundwater, and sediment.

Themes for the conference included: restoration, new functions of the subsurface; sustainable management of land use and the subsurface; and management of contamination at regional scale.

The Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology group of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Department of Applied Environmental Biotechnology and Food Science, Hungary participated at ConSoil by giving one oral presentation (Speaker: Katalin Gruiz) about utilisation of waste on soil and presenting in the poster session. 7 posters. The oral presentation and the posters can be viewed in the attachments. Please find below the list of the titles of the presented  oral presentation and posters.
