DENVER, Nov. - Twenty-one environmental scientists from ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international design, consulting, engineering and management services company, will share their expertise at the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America 31st Annual Meeting, to be held in Portland November 7-11. ARCADIS is a Global Partner of SETAC, and our staff are very active within the organization (both at international and regional levels), holding a number of board positions and working through committees to promote innovative science in the fields of environmental toxicology, risk assessment, and sustainable remediation and restoration solutions for the environment.
'The development of techniques and solutions for overcoming environmental challenges to sustain clean water, air and land is one of ARCADIS' greatest areas of strength,' said Timothy Iannuzzi, Senior Vice President/Principal Scientist for ARCADIS U.S. 'The SETAC meeting is an ideal platform for our scientists and engineers to share insights gathered through decades of field experience, while also learning from other participants who join us in actively seeking to refine industry best practices. We look forward to harnessing the knowledge we gain throughout the meeting to better serve our clients.'
The ARCADIS professionals will present more than 20 platforms and posters, lead short courses, and chair special sessions throughout the meeting. Topics will cover a range of methods and case studies for conducting ecological and human health risk/impact assessments, innovative study techniques for emerging issues such as nanomaterials, and techniques for evaluating and remediating the effects of various chemical contaminants and non-chemical stressors on human and animal populations and environments.
SETAC is a non-profit, tripartite (government, academia and industry) worldwide professional society composed of individuals and institutions engaged in the study, analysis and solution of environmental problems, the management and regulation of natural resources, environmental education, and research and development. The Annual Meeting brings together industry professionals, academics and students committed to the advancement and application of scientific research related to contaminants and other stressors in the environment, as well as the use of science in environmental policy and decision-making.
