SOIL 16.2 - HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM IN THE GEOENVIRONMENT: OCCURRENCE AND REMEDIATION
Hexavalent chromium or Cr(VI) presence in soil and water resources is an important environmental issue with increased public concern. Although high Cr(VI) concentrations in the geoenvironment are typically attributed to human activities, today it is widely accepted that geogenic Cr sources can also be important contributors. Naturally-derived high aqueous Cr(VI) concentrations have been reported in several areas across the globe, such as the USA, Italy and Greece. Taking into account the significant socioeconomic impacts of this environmental issue, the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology, which will be held in Athens in September 2013, is dedicating a session to the theme: “Hexavalent chromium in geoenvironment: occurrence and remediation”. It is pleasure to invite you to participate in this very promising session.
