crcCARE Workshop: Vapour Intrusion (VI) and Hazardous Ground Gases (GG) Assessment and Management in Australia

This one-day workshop has been developed in response to the critical need for regulators and practitioners to share experiences with a view to creating standard practices, and addressing knowledge gaps, in Vapour Intrusion (VI) and Hazardous Ground Gases (GG) Assessment and Management in Australia

The crcCARE Vapour Intrusion and Hazardous Ground Gases Workshop draws together new knowledge with practical experience to provide participants with enhanced skills and knowledge to manage even the most challenging sites, regardless of their current level of experience. The workshop will offer invaluable networking opportunities for practitioners, regulators, and researchers. Delegates will get the opportunity to build connections with instructors as well as with their fellow delegates.

This course can be used towards continuing professional development (CPD) points. Please check with your certification scheme regarding CPD points.

This workshop offers contaminated land practitioners, regulators and researchers insights into the predictability of Vapour Intrusion.
Topics include:

  • Soil vapour sampling methods
  • New technologies
  • International guidelines
  • Indoor Air real- time monitoring and laboratory methods
  • Landfill gas (LFG) installation and location sampling
  • Risk assessment

It will include panel discussions and case studies covering technology from other industries e.g. mining, CSG & UCG etc. Presenters will also explore successful case studies that overcame technology and guideline barriers with a unique appreciation for the underpinning of science and technology.
