Evan Cox, principal remediation scientist based in Guelph, Ontario, focuses on managing and directing soil and groundwater remediation projects dealing with emerging and recalcitrant contaminants. 

Practice Specialties
Mr. Cox has over 15 years of demonstrated experience in the development, feasibility evaluation and application of innovative in situ remediation technologies. These include monitored natural attenuation (MNA), enhanced in situ bioremediation (EISB), in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO), and metal-catalyzed reduction of chlorinated and recalcitrant chemicals in subsurface environments. 

Advancing the State-of-the-Practice
Mr. Cox continues to advance the state-of-the-practice by pioneering the use of the MNA and EISB technologies, including bioaugmentation for remediation of chlorinated solvents in porous media and fractured bedrock.  Expanding on these efforts, Mr. Cox has pioneered the use of EISB to treat rocket fuels such as perchlorate in soil and groundwater.  Mr. Cox directs demonstrations of ISCO using permanganate to treat chlorinated solvents in fractured bedrock groundwater, and demonstrations of zero-valent metal-catalyzed reduction of chlorinated solvents, explosives (RDX and TNT), and propulsion energetics (NDMA) in groundwater using both permeable reactive barrier (PRB) and nanoscale metallic particle approaches.  He works with private sector interests and government research programs such as DOD’s Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP).  As part of his pioneering in situ remediation research, development, and implementation work, he has authored over 30 professional publications and articles regarding the degradation of hazardous contaminants in subsurface environments, and has co-authored several guidance documents and educational courses on these subjects. 

Academic Accomplishments
Mr. Cox received his M.Sc. in microbiology and B.Sc in biology from the University of Waterloo.
