ERM's Dick Brown will also be on a panel discussion titled "Approaching Sites with Metal- and Radionuclide-Contaminated Soils and Groundwater: A Paradigm Shift" in addition to co-chairing a session on In Situ Chemical Reduction (D4) and Kevin Morris will chair a session on Innovative Advances and Applications of Biobarriers (E6).
Dick points out: "The Battelle Monterey conference is the most comprehensive environmental conference in the world providing an opportunity to hear about advances in the understanding of the fate and transport and technologies for the remediation of a wide range of organic and inorganic contaminants. It is a great opportunity to learn and to network with technology developers and appliers."
Battelle's 2010 technical program will consist of approximately 850 platform and poster presentations in 65 technical sessions, as well as three panel discussions. The program focuses on the innovative application of existing or new technologies and approaches to address the challenges of characterization, treatment, and monitoring of chlorinated and other recalcitrant compounds in various environmental media. The 1,750 plus delegates will include scientists, engineers, regulators, and other environmental professionals representing universities, government site management and regulatory agencies, and R&D and manufacturing firms from 32 countries.
