Geosyntec to Present at Upcoming Battelle International Symposium in Reno, Nevada June 27-30, 2011

Reno, Nev. — Geosyntec will be well represented at the June 27 — 30 Battelle International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies in Reno, with two employees serving on the Steering Committee, one serving as a Session Chair, five giving platform talks, and two presenting posters. In total, 20 Geosyntec engineers and scientists served as contributing or lead authors for sessions at this conference.

  • James Wang,Ph.D., P.E., will give a platform presentation on Electrokinetic Technology for Innovative Bioremediation Amendment Delivery and Bioaugmentation Strategy, on Tuesday, June 28 at 8:25 a.m. in Tuscany 12.
  • Bruce Marvin, M.S., P.E., will give a platform presentation on Combining In-situ Chemical and Biological Treatment: Case Examples Illustrating Concepts for Coupling Technologies on Thursday, June 30 at 2:15 pm in Tuscany 12.
  • Todd Creamer. P.G., will present a poster on Multi-Faceted Sustainable Remediation Strategy for Tetrachloroethene Released in a Complex Urban Environment on Wednesday, June 29 from 5:15 — 6:45 p.m.
  • Derek Tomlinson, M.A.Sc., P.E., L.S.R.P., will give a platform presentation on Managing Thin Layers of LNAPL: Sustainability Meets Recoverability on Wednesday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m. in Tuscany 11, and will also serve as Session Chair.
  • Leah MacKinnon, M.A.Sc., will give a platform presentation on Application of EISB Following ERH for Remediation of VOCs, and a poster on In Situ Abiotic and Biotic Remediation Alternatives to Pump-and-Treat for Chlorinated Methanes and Ethanes.

Geosyntec staff will also support several client presentations, including:

  • NASA's Robert Kline will give a platform presentation on Using Solar Powered Groundwater Recirculation to Enhance Reductive Dechlorination at Kennedy Space Center, with Geosyntec's Jim Langenbach, P.E.
  • U.S. Geological Survey's Anna Baker will give a platform presentation on Footprint Reduction and Renewable Resource Usage during Anaerobic Chlorinated Solvent Removal at a Water Treatment Facility with Geosyntec's Duane Graves, Ph.D.
  • U.S. Geological Survey's Michelle Lorah will give a platform presentation on Transformation Products and Rates for Chlorinated Ethanes and Ethenes by an Anaerobic Dechlorinating Consortium, also with Geosyntec's Duane Graves, Ph.D.

Previously known as the In Situ and On-site Bioremediation Symposium, this year's conference will cover bioremediation and related technologies, as well as green and sustainable remediation, sustainable site management strategies, emerging contaminants, vapor intrusion, and the environmental impacts of biology-based alternative energy production.
