The Association for Environmental Health and Sciences Foundation Presents: The 20th International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water, and Energy and AEHS Foundation Annual Meeting from March 15-18, 2010 at the Marriott Mission Valley, San Diego, California USA. March 2010 will mark the twentieth annual gathering of environmental professionals to the Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water, and Energy. For the past nineteen years, this annual conference has helped to bring the environmental science community closer together by providing a forum to facilitate the exchange of information of technological advances, new scientific achievements, and the effectiveness of standing environmental regulation programs.

Thomas A. Harp, P.G., Principal and Director of Technical Operations, LT Environmental, Inc. of Arvada, Colorado, USA will present, “Special Case Studies: Closing Solvent Sites Using Activated Carbon Impregnated with Iron” on Tuesday, March 16, 2010 from 3:00pm-6:00pm, at the conference. Sites impacted by even extremely high concentrations of chlorinated solvents (indicative of dense non-aqueous phase liquid, i.e. DNAPL) are being closed using a specially-prepared, activated carbon impregnated with an iron salt that is pyrolized into nano-sized deposits of porous, metallic iron. Contaminants are adsorbed by the carbon catalyst and quickly and efficiently treated via reductive dechlorination by the iron. LT Environmental, Inc. (LTE) has pioneered the TerraCert® program for implementing remedies using this carbon-iron injectate, known as BOS 100®. Three case studies are presented to document the effectiveness of this innovative technology. CONTACT MR. HARP FOR A COPY OF THIS STUDY AT 303-433-9788.

About the TerraCert™ program.
LT Environmental, Inc. (LTE) recognizes the value of rapid evaluation, remediation and closure of contaminated soil and groundwater sites. LTE’s goals are to reduce client liability and expense, satisfy environmental regulators, and achieve site closure. To this end, LTE has employed a variety of remediation technologies including traditional excavation and above ground water treatment (pump & treat); insitu mechanical systems (air sparging/soil vapor extraction/dual phase extraction); monitored natural attenuation; and insitu injection treatments. Recently, client specific requirements have matured, dictating that remedial actions achieve the stated goals and reduce life cycle costs, while also diminishing the impacts to facility operations.

About LT Environmental, Inc. (LTE).
Over the past 15 years, LTE has provided Phase I and II assessment, investigation, and remedial system design and installation services at more than 300 industrial facilities in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Utah, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Mississippi. We have provided UST replacement, removal, investigation, and remediation services at more than 250 sites throughout the western United States. We have also provided services in support of large multi-facility site investigations, compliance plan development, risk assessments, feasibility studies, and remedial action plan development involving natural gas gathering and processing systems, bus maintenance facilities, bulk fuel storage terminals, produced water evaporation ponds, manufacturing, and waste management facilities.

LTE has particular expertise in design and construction of remediation systems regulated under CERCLA, RCRA, and various state agencies. We have provided professional design and construction services for acid mine drainage, hydrocarbon removal, metals solidification treatment systems, storm water management structures, and methane detection and venting systems. LTE is a leader in the use of a variety of injection technologies to remediate hydrocarbons and solvents. In most cases, we provide Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services for the systems designed and installed by LTE. Our technicians are an integral part of the design and installation phases of a project and are therefore familiar with the equipment and maintenance requirements of the systems.
