Jeremy Morris is Principal Engineer based in Maryland with more than 20 years of professional experience focused on solid waste management with an emphasis on closure and post-closure performance of waste containment facilities.
Jeremy's professional experience extends to solid waste facilities in more than 25 states and provinces in North America, as well as Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Africa. He has helped dozens of private and public clients navigate the project development lifecycle for new and expanded waste management facilities, providing services from pre-development planning and impact assessment through engineering design and permitting, bidding and procurement, construction, operation, compliance, and closure/post-closure. His key experience is in the fields of: waste containment facility design and construction; landfill gas management and methane migration control; leachate management and treatment; design of closure systems for waste containment facilities; long-term performance and post-closure care of landfills; and beneficial reuse of closed landfill properties and brownfield sites, including for renewable energy projects.
A practice leader within Geosyntec's solid waste advisory group, Jeremy provides strategic advisory services on solid waste planning, including market valuations and feasibility analyses of alternative waste conversion technologies, and options for meeting waste diversion and recycling goals and mandates. Building on a background in facility design, permitting, and construction oversight, his solid waste advisory experience extends to: solid waste management and recycling master plans; feasibility studies and conceptual plans for solid waste management facilities; operational reviews and advising on implementing best practices; market studies and cash flow analyses; evaluating options for increasing waste diversion, including waste transfer and sorting, materials recovery, recycling, and composting of organics; and helping municipalities develop greenhouse gas inventories and emission reduction plans, as well as quantify, register, and trade carbon offsets earned through emission control measures.
He has served as lead investigator on U.S. EPA research studies and written guidance on long-term performance and regulation of waste management facilities. Jeremy is the author of more than 65 technical publications. He currently serves on the Research Council for the Environmental Research and Education Foundation and the Task Group on Sustainable Landfill Management for the International Waste Working Group.
