This document reports on the first meeting of the Pilot Study on Prevention and Remediation Issues in Selected Industrial Sectors. The purpose of the pilot study is to define and explore best practices for reducing the health and environmental impact on soil and groundwater from industrial sectors of interest (e.g., metals mining, organic chemical production, gasworks, and fertilizer manufacturing) as well as other unique site 'types' (e.g., old landfills, privatization sites (i.e., facilities transitioning from former state ownership in certain categories), mega sites (i.e., large scale former industrial and mining facilities), and shoreline sediment sites). The pilot study will explore the techniques and technologies for preventing and avoiding discharge to soil and groundwater as well as measurement and remediation for that industry sector or site type. It seeks to engage industry and other private sector organizations at the transnational level in sharing and evaluating technical information. In reviewing case studies as well as experience from the previous CCMS pilot study on contaminated and other sources, the proposed pilot study may be able to assess or benchmark what is easy to clean, what is difficult to clean, and what is impossible at reasonable cost, to clean.
