Beijing Workshop, November 6th to 7th 2014

As a result, UK’s best practice and excellence in heavy metal and petroleum hydrocarbons contaminated land management was publicised on Peoples’ Daily (the report of the workshop) and will be adopted by China Strategy on Science and Technology Development of Land Remediation and Heavy Metal Pollution Control later this year. Furthermore, the suggestion for enhancing Sino-UK Technical Cooperation in Soil Remediation Under the Background of Fast Urbanisation is being prepared by the experts of CECEP and CAS and will be reported to the related ministries (MEP, MoST, NDRC etc) through ‘Internal Reference’
