DE-US.net Webinar 6/6/2019: Redevelopment Assistance to Brownfields Communities in the US and Germany
Webinar on June 6 at 14:00 GMT (16:00 Berlin | 10:00 am Washington, D.C.).
Brownfields are an issue both in the US and in Germany. During this webinar, speakers will provide an overview of available and free redevelopment assistance to communities dealing with brownfield issues in both countries.
Particularly for the U.S., we will introduce the national Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities (TAB) program and explain what assistance the program can provide to support brownfield redevelopment. We will highlight available brownfield related EPA resources and discuss some state specific resource examples.
For Germany, we focus the presentation on the Federal State of North-Rhine-Westphalia, which is the most populated German state and has been the industrial heart of Germany’s heavy industries (mining, steel, machinery, energy, car, chemistry, etc.). We introduce how the AAV – Association for Land Recycling and Remediation – supports brownfields municipalities.
Join this webinar to learn how municipalities find support and what our DE-US.net experts contribute to more sustainable land-use.
