This one-day program will provide you with the basics of performing successful remediation using a variety of innovative in situ technologies as well as present "real" site data derived from actual innovative technologies projects. The course will focus on choosing the "right" technology or combination of technologies, as well as delivery methods for given site conditions.
Leading regulatory and technical experts in the fields of Site Characterization, Bioremediation, Chemical Oxidation/Chemical Reduction, Thermal Treatment and Delivery Methodology will present timely information on:
- The importance of performing a Proper Site Characterization in order to develop an accurate conceptual site model.
- New techniques in Bioremediation for the treatment of recalcitrant compounds and DNAPL source areas.
- Use of the proper Chemical Oxidants depending on the contaminants-of-concern, presence/absence of NAPL and site hydrogeology.
- Treatment of chlorinated contaminants, oxidized metals, and other redox-amenable contaminants using Zero Valent Iron (ZVI) and other Chemical Reductants.
- In Situ Thermal Treatment strategies to treat a wide variety of contaminants in a variety of settings
- Choosing the proper Delivery Technology
- The process of gaining Regulatory Approval and Funding using innovative technologies
Who Should Attend?
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.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will be able to accurately select the proper technology and delivery methods for site-specific remediation projects while adhering to current regulatory and industry standards.
