Summary: The BANYAREM Hungarian Research and Development Project had the aim to develop a complex risk management approach to diffuse and residual pollution of mining origin. Risk management includes a tiered risk assessment procedure and the selection, testing and application of the best possible remediation option to reach the set risk-based target values.
Diffuse pollution requires new strategy in risk management. The risk-based management concept includes: 1. a tiered, GIS based Risk Assessment methodology, developed on catchment scale basis and 2. risk-based planning and selection of the remediation concept and technologies
