Chris Voci Presents at UMass Soils Conference

PRINCETON, NJ — Chris Voci, PG, recently spoke at the 26th Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy. The conference, presented by the Association for Environmental Health & Sciences Foundation and commonly referred to as the "UMass Soils Conference," was held at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (UMass) from October 18 — 21, 2010.

Chris' presentation, as part of the conference's bioremediation platform, was entitled "Combining Bioaugmentation Cultures to Treat Complex Mixtures of High-Concentration Volatile Organic Compounds — Bench Test Findings." Participants learned about the increasingly important role of bioaugmentation as a viable source area treatment technology, particularly over the past five years. Chris presented data from several bench-scale projects that illustrated the ability of multiple bioaugmentation cultures to successfully treat high concentrations of mixed VOCs in source areas.

The UMass Soils Conference is a premier national conference that routinely draws 700 - 800 attendees from a wide variety of state and federal agencies; the military; a number of industries including railroad, petroleum, transportation, utilities; the environmental engineering and consulting community; and academia.
