James Wang to Teach a Course on Sustainable LNAPL Site Remediation at SAME's Joint Engineer Training Conference and Expo

James (Yu-Sheng) Wang, Ph.D., P.E. (Maryland) will teach a course titled "Transitioning to Sustainable LNAPL Remediation Using Natural Source Zone Depletion" at the Joint Engineer Training Conference and Expo (JETC) hosted by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado at 1:15 p.m. on May 11, 2022. In addition, Geosyntec will sponsor a booth at the event.

James Wang is a Principal Environmental Engineer based in Maryland with more than 23 years of experience focused on developing and applying innovative assessment and remediation technologies. James has extensive research and consulting experience in developing and engineering chemical and biological treatment technologies to address chemical contaminants under complex environmental conditions. He has directed and led many research projects funded by government agencies and industrial clients to advance and demonstrate innovative technologies for waste treatment and management, bioreactor landfills, electrokinetically enhanced in situ groundwater remediation, and submerged attached-growth bioreactors for advanced wastewater treatment.

The JETC is an annual conference that offers the military engineering community the opportunity to learn from senior government and industry decisionmakers and to meet and network with their peers. Sessions address many topics dealing with infrastructure-related national security issues. The conference features more than 70 education and training sessions, more than 200 exhibitors, an awards program, and networking opportunities.

Course Description

James will offer a walk-through from fundamentals to success stories of transitioning costly site remediation of light nonaqueous-phase liquids (LNAPL) to a highly sustainable alternative, natural source zone depletion (NSZD). James will present a framework for evaluating and integrating NSZD into a LNAPL site remediation program that reduces costs and improves sustainability. The course will discuss the technical background of NSZD processes, field assessment techniques, case studies illustrating remedy transition and integration, and strategies for navigating through regulatory framework. Select projects will be presented to provide practical examples of NSZD evaluation and applications. Attendees will understand the science, learn the tools and techniques, and see how to navigate through the regulatory framework to achieve the goal of remediation optimization at LNAPL sites.
