MFA Invited to Present at International Battelle Symposium

Author: James Peale, RG, LHG Published: June 23, 2011

Portland, June 23, 2011 Based on the outstanding results of an innovative and sustainable remediation approach developed and implemented by MFA scientists and engineers, the first International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies will include an update from James Peale that demonstrates full-scale ISCR-enhanced bioremediation of TCE DNAPL.

In situ chemical reduction (ISCR) and bioremediation are developed, sustainable technologies for remediation of TCE (trichloroethylene) groundwater plumes. TCE source areas, which often include dense, non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL), have proven to be more difficult to remediate. Mr. Peale and his team worked with their client to evaluate and implement the combination of ISCR and bioremediation to attack a deep, complex TCE DNAPL source area. The results confirmed outstanding performance, and demonstrated that the synergy of the combined technologies outperformed expectations.

The International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies, hosted in Reno, NV, by Battelle, Inc., brings together an extensive international group of stakeholders in the environmental field, ranging from regulators to practitioners and performing parties. Similar to the biannual International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds, the Symposium is one of the premiere professional venues for the discussion and evaluation of proven and developing cutting-edge remediation approaches and technologies.
