Geosyntec to Present at WEFTEC Connect

Andrew Holmes, Ph.D. (Ontario), will present "Utilization of Recyclable Photocatalysts for Selenium Removal from Industrial Wastewater" at the Water Environment Federation's Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) Connect at 9:10-9:30 a.m. EDT on October 7, 2020.

Additionally, Chris Conkle, P.E., G.E. and Christopher Hunt, Ph.D., P.E., G.E. (California) co-authored "Resiliency Planning: A Risk-Based Approach to Seismic Evaluation for Southern California's Orange County Sanitation District" that will be presented at 11:10-11:30 a.m. on October 7, 2020.

Andrew Holmes' expertise includes non-biological approaches for selenium (Se) and arsenic (As) removal from mine-impacted water and brine as well as flue gas desulphurization wastewater using novel engineered photocatalysts. Andrew is well versed in Se analytical techniques for the speciation and quantification of Se to below 1 ug/L with the use of HG-ICP-OES and IC-ICP-MS. Andrew's other research contributions include crude oil contaminated site characterization using nanomaterial enhanced geophysical techniques and targeted delivery of nanomaterials for crude oil abatement.
