As part of CleanUp 2015 delegates can book onto a technical tour of contaminated sites and analytical and instrumentation facilities around Melbourne.
The tour will take place on Thursday 17th September 2015.
Places on the tour are limited. Book now to secure your spot.
Delegates registered for this one-day tour will visit a remediated site and some of the best analytical and instrumentation facilities in Melbourne with guided tours by local experts.
Thanks to our tour sponsor Perkin Elmer who we will be visiting on Stop 3 of the tour.
The four stops of the tour are outlined below:
Golder Associates has installed a super oxygenated water (SOW) remediation system at a former service station for remediation of hydrocarbon impacted groundwater. As with any remediation, understanding the conceptual site model (CSM) is a critical element to successfully achieving the remedial goal.
This field visit is an opportunity to discuss the CSM, the development of remedial approach, view the SOW system and assess progress towards the remedial goal.

RENEX is Australia’s first permanently located Integrated Waste Treatment & Resource Recovery Facility for the treatment of contaminated soils and other Prescribed Industrial Wastes. The facility accepts waste materials which would otherwise have been destined for landfill disposal, to be treated and reused in sustainable applications.
The facility is over 10,000m2 under roof and includes a storage area for over 30,000 tonnes of contaminated soil. The facility utilises Indirectly Heated Pyrolysis Rotary Kiln Technology for the treatment of these wastes. This is an opportunity to find out from Richard Jeffares from RENEX what the facility in Dandenong South has to offer.

The PerkinElmer Flagship Facility (established in 2015) at Monash’s Green Chemical Futures (GCF) building is an analytical facility that brings together the capability, innovation, and expertise of PerkinElmer for analytical technology with the research and training capabilities of Monash University.
It will be a hub for industry collaboration, graduate traning, and an analytical service platform for Green Chemical Futures members and partners. It provides the foundation for future collaboration with PerkinElmer (exclusively) on a local and global level and Monash University. The Facility enhances Monash’s infrastructure capability to support the Chemicals and Plastics industry or innovation, whilst supporting research focussed on green chemistry.

ALS Environmental provides a full range of environmental analytical testing services. As part of the tour you will get a chance to:
If you have already registered for CleanUp 2015 contact the event team to purchase tickets for the site tour.
The technical tour will depart from the Crown Promenade Hotel at 8.30am and return at 5.00pm.
Morning tea and lunch will be provided for each attendee.
Further details will be added here as it becomes available.
This page previously advertised two seperate tours - one analytical and instrumental tour and one remediation tour. We have decided to combine these two tours to offer a longer one-day technical tour that takes delegates on a journey from a real-life remediated site to instrumental and analytical facilities that are using innovative techniques to assess and remediate contaminated air, water and soil.
