NICOLA will be hosting its 5th Annual Conference on the theme of “Emerging Challenges: Together Towards Tomorrow”. The conference will be held on 31 October to 1 November at the Krystal Beach Hotel in Cape Town.  Register now to find out more about the fantastic collaboration happening across public and private sectors to solve contaminated land challenges in Africa and see first-hand why NICOLA received the Department of Environmental Affairs 2019 Waste Khoro Award for Land Remediation in Africa.

The annual NICOLA conference is an opportunity for the contaminated land and remediation community in South Africa and beyond to connect and share the latest developments and examples of best practice. We are also looking to strengthen our connections to the other NICOLE organisations and are extremely pleased to welcome Olivier Mourier from NICOLE Latin America as one of our conference keynote speakers.
