A 20+1 year tradition!... of European Bioremediation Conferences: 2001 - 2022

Message by the Conference co-chairs:

Dear colleagues & friends,

The European Bioremediation Conferences celebrate their 20th anniversary! The 8th European Bioremediation Conference (EBC-VIII) will take place in Chania, Crete from June 12 to 17, 2022 (new date!) twenty one years later after the first one!

The European Bioremediation Conferences started in 2001 organized by TU-Crete. Since then, seven conferences managed to bring together scientists and engineers from all over the world to present their findings and exchange information on recent advances in environmental remediation technologies, especially focusing on bioremediation and phytoremediation of contaminated sites including the marine environment. In 2018 we were pleased to host in Chania the joint conference of the 7th European Bioremediation Conference (EBC-VII) and the 11th International Society for Environmental Biotechnology conference (ISEB 2018).

We are very pleased to invite you to join us at EBC-VIII, which is again co-organised by the Technical University of Crete and the University of Bologna and sponsored by the Environmental Biotechnology Section of EFB. The conference topics have been expanded to include new challenges, future trends, directions and most recent technological innovations for management and restoration of a wide range of contaminated sites and marine environments as well as on resource preservation through recycling and bio-based reclamation, towards to a circular economy.

Yet, based on the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to postpone the conference for a year from June 2021 to June 2022

We look forward to seeing you all in Chania in June 2022!

Nicolas & Fabio
