TITLE: Biogeochemical Transformation of Chlorinated Solvents
SPEAKER: Dr. Patrick Evans
DATE: July 9, 2014
TIME: 12:00 PM EDT
In situ biogeochemical transformation refers to processes where contaminants are degraded by abiotic reactions with minerals that are either naturally occurring or are produced by biogenic processes in the subsurface. This process can be an effective remediation strategy for active treatment of chlorinated solvents and post-remediation natural attenuation of large, dilute plumes. In this webinar, presented by Dr. Patrick Evans, you will learn about:
- Mechanisms and processes that are involved in biogeochemical transformations
- Configurations in which biogeochemical transformation can be implemented in the field
- Controlling factors that determine whether biogeochemical transformation will be effective and should be considered in design
- Monitoring tools that can be used to optimize biogeochemical transformation.
Dr. Evans is a Vice President with CDM Smith in Bellevue, Washington and has 30 years of research and development experience in the areas of hazardous waste remediation, energy, drinking water treatment, and waste water treatment. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan and his M.S. degree in chemical engineering from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. He also completed postdoctoral research in environmental microbiology at New York University Medical Center. Dr. Evans has been a Principal Investigator on numerous research projects including ones funded by the Department of Defense Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) and the Water Research Foundation. He is the recipient of the Water Environment Federation McKee Award, and two Research Grand Awards and one Superior Achievement Award from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists.
