The Brownfields Tax Incentive extension through December 2009 has created a timely opportunity for companies seeking to acquire and revitalize all types of contaminated land to productive economic and green space use, reduce air emissions, and stimulating urban development. From site assessment and remediation technologies, to development initiatives and real estate finance, Brownfields are an exciting innovation space generating attractive returns. The EPA Brownfields Program has leveraged 48,238 jobs and $11.3 billion in new investment as of March, 2008. Join leaders in technological and project finance innovation, and learn from successful case studies in this growth area.
