Dimin Fan to Co-Present In Situ Activated Carbon-Based Technology Webinar Sponsored by U.S. EPA
Dimin Fan, Ph.D. (Maryland) will co-present a webinar entitled "In Situ Activated Carbon-Based Technology for Groundwater Remediation: Overview, Best Practices, and Case Studies," sponsored by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation. The live webinar will be held on Monday, June 25, 2018, 1:00-2:30 p.m. EDT.
Dimin will co-present work that he conducted as a research fellow with the U.S. EPA on activated carbon-based technologies for in situ groundwater remediation. Hosted by Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN), the webinar results from Recommendation 9 of U.S. EPA's Superfund Task Force, which encourages the Superfund program to "utilize state-of-the-art technologies to expedite cleanup." Actions under this recommendation include expanding the use of new remediation technologies and approaches to address contaminated sites. Dimin's co-presenters are Edward Winner, Assistant Director of the Division of Waste Management, Commonwealth of Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection and Katrin Mackenzie, Senior Scientist at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, UFZ, Germany. The webcast will be moderated by Cindy Frickle, U.S. EPA Technology Innovation and Field Services Division.
Dimin is an Environmental Engineer with Geosyntec Consultants. Previously, he was as an ORISE Research Fellow with the U.S. EPA, where he conducted evaluation of various innovative in situ groundwater remediation technologies for the Superfund program. One of his main research focuses at EPA was in situ activated carbon-based technologies. He has also made significant contributions to developing and improving iron-based technologies for chlorinated solvent remediation.
The Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website provides information about innovative treatment and site characterization technologies to the hazardous waste remediation community. It describes programs, organizations, publications, and other tools for federal and state personnel, consulting engineers, technology developers and vendors, remediation contractors, researchers, community groups, and individual citizens. The site, developed by the U.S. EPA, is intended as a forum for all waste remediation stakeholders.
In this webinar, we will present an overview of in situ activated carbon-based remediation technology, discuss important considerations for site characterization and treatment design, and present characterizations of physical, chemical and biological processes involved in a long-term case study where reactive activated carbon-based technology was applied.
