Do you understand your site? Have you addressed contaminant distribution, concentrations, and total mass? What are the physical and chemical properties of the contaminant? What are the characteristics and permeability of the substrate? Do aerobic, anaerobic, or conditions in between prevail?
Given this context, how do you select and implement the most effective in situ technology?
This class will present the science and practical aspects of bioremediation, chemical oxidation, thermal treatment (ERH, TCH, SEE), and zero valent iron (along with other reducing technologies).
- Do’s and Don’ts of Injections
- Treatment Train Techniques for Combining Technologies
Upon completion of this course, attendees will have a framework and technology-specific information to assist in evaluation and selection of remedial alternatives while adhering to current regulatory and industry standards.
Who Should Attend?
This class is well-suited for professionals involved in site investigation, characterization, and remediation; those who want to remain current in the latest innovative technologies; and industry and legal decision makers who need current information to make informed decisions. Past participants have included:
- Environmental Engineers
- Environmental Scientists
- Laboratory Managers
- Licensed Site Remediation Professionals
- Project Managers
NOTE: This class was formerly titled “In situ Technologies for Site Remediation.”
