Derek Tomlinson Presents at the American Chemical Society National Meeting

Derek Tomlinson (Pennsylvania) will present at the 252nd American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting & Exposition entitled "Chemistry of the People, by the People, for the People" at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at 1:30pm on August 24, 2016.

He will discuss innovative remediation techniques for dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) source areas in his presentation entitled "Development of Innovative Technologies for the Remediation of DNAPL Source Zones Throughout their Lifecycle," presented during the ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry session on Recent Advances in Remediation Strategies and Technologies for the Cleanup of Hazardous Waste Sites.

The presentation will examine the importance of the DNAPL site lifecycle in remediation, and several emerging remediation techniques that show promise toward improving efficiency in the remediation of DNAPL and related pathways, including STAR (in situ smoldering combustion), electrokinetic techniques, and direct-push technology (DPT) jet injection. The technologies will be examined through an overview of each, their history of development, a summary of case studies and full-scale applications, and their applicability within the DNAPL lifecycle.

The ACS National Meeting will include over 3,000 exhibitors and over 8,000 presentations on cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art technologies. The meeting is occurring from 21 to 25 August 2016 in Philadelphia.
