BDA Chair to Speak at GE Sustainability Conference 2024

June 5, 2024

We are delighted to announce that Mark Toye, the Chair of the British Drilling Association (BDA), will be speaking at the GE (Ground Engineering) Sustainability Conference 2024. This prestigious event, scheduled for 18th September, will be held at the America Square Conference Centre in London, and is set to be a cornerstone in advancing sustainable practices within the ground engineering sector.

Mark will participate in a “Dialogue Session: Advancing Sustainable Soil Management and Reuse.” This session will bring together industry experts to discuss sustainable soil management practices, innovations in soil stabilisation techniques, and the emerging challenges posed by PFAS contamination.

Attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain insights from CL:AIRE and the Environment Agency on sustainable soil reuse practices and the importance of minimising soil waste to landfill.
  • Explore innovations in soil stabilisation techniques such as bio-cementation and microbial-induced calcite precipitation, and their role in enhancing soil sustainability and resilience.
  • Discuss the challenges posed by PFAS contamination in construction projects, including difficulties in control and cross-contamination risks arising from widespread PFAS usage.

Mark’s participation underscores the BDA’s commitment to promoting sustainable practices in the industry. His expertise and insights are expected to contribute significantly to the conference’s discussions, offering valuable perspectives on reducing soil waste, enhancing soil sustainability, and addressing critical environmental concerns in construction projects.

Join us at the GE Sustainability Conference 2024 to learn from the leaders in the field and to be part of the conversation driving the future of sustainable ground engineering.
