Dave Major Co-Authors PFAS Paper for Environmental Science & Technology Journal

Dave Major, Ph.D. (Guelph) co-authored "Remediation of PFAS-Contaminated Soil and Granular Activated Carbon by Smoldering Combustion", recently published in the Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) Journal.

Dave's co-authors are Alexandra L. Duchesne, Joshua Brown, and Jason I. Gerhard from the University of Western Ontario, and David Patch, and Kela Weber from the Royal Military College of Canada.

The study presented in the paper explored smoldering combustion for remediating PFAS-impacted granular activated carbon and PFAS-contaminated soil.

Dave is a Senior Principal based in Ontario with more than 30 years of experience focused on negotiating, managing and directing the development and deployment of cost-effective remediation strategies and technologies for challenging contaminated sites associated with Fortune 500 companies. He is Savron's Managing Director. Savron is part of the Geosyntec family of companies and a provider of sustainable waste management and remediation solutions. Dave also serves as Chair of Geosyntec's Technology Advisory Council, an internally funded research and development program.

ES&T is an impactful environmental science and technology research journal that aims to be transformational and direction-setting, publishing rigorous and robust papers for a multidisciplinary and diverse audience of scientists, policy makers and the broad environmental community. For more than 50 years, ES&T has been a foundational focus for thought-leading, policy-changing contributions and will continue to serve as the home for significant, broadly relevant, and generalizable research that serves to inform decision-making.
