Our professionals contribute to engineering and science programs at leading colleges and universities in areas related to their professional specialties.

  • Naval Facilities Engineering services Command, Geosyntec Consultants, and Oregon Health and Science University, Funded research through the navy Environmental Sustainability Development to Integration (NESDI) program to evaluate the effectiveness of zero valent zinc and high-sulfur atomized in treating groundwater contaminated with 1,2,3-trichloropropane
  • Geosyntec Consultants and Sacramento State University, Funded research through the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) to characterize the cost and benefit of transportation-specific municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) and construction permitting Geosyntec Consultants and Oregon State University, Funded research through the NCHRP by the National Science Foundation for evaluating and selecting modifications to the existing roadway drainage infrastructure to improve water quality in ultra-urban areas
  • University of Toronto and Geosyntec Consultants, Funded research through the Ontario Genomics Institute for the Bioproducts and Enzymes from Environmental Metagenomes (BEEM) program to identify opportunities to transform low-value plant residues and wastes into valuable bioproducts using microbial communities as change agents
  • Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), companion programs of the U.S. Department of Defense to improve the agency's environmental performance through the application of emerging, cost-saving technologies, Applied research program to identify and demonstrate promising emerging technologies to support the U.S. Department of Defense environmental restoration mission. Through this program, Geosyntec has collaborated with researchers from: University of California, Berkeley, University of Waterloo, Cornell University, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Toronto, Queens University, Arizona State University, Cranfield University, and University of Tennessee (Knoxville)
  • University of Western Ontario, University of Edinburgh, University of Strathclyde, and Geosyntec Consultants, Applied research for the commercialization of a remediation technology targeting non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs) such as coal tar, creosote, oils and greases, and solvent/oil mixtures using the principles of smoldering combustion (Self-sustaining Treatment for Active Remediation – STAR)
  • Geosyntec Consultants, Oregon State University, Venner Consulting, Wright Water Engineers, and Low Impact Development Center, National Cooperative Highway Research Program on behalf of the National Academy of Sciences. Development of guidelines for evaluating and selecting modifications to existing roadway drainage infrastructure to improve water quality in ultra-urban areas.
  • Geosyntec Consultants, National Cooperative Highway Research Program on behalf of the National Academy of Sciences. Development of guidelines for achieving volume reduction of highway runoff in urban areas to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
  • Geosyntec Consultants, Development of Federal Highway Administration Geotechnical Engineering Circulars describing the state of the practice on technical topics germane to the design and construction of roads and highways. These include earth retaining structures, geotechnical earthquake engineering, and evaluation of soil and rock properties among others.
  • Geosyntec Consultants, Brown University, Oregon State University, Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management, and Wells National Estuary Research Reserve, Research collaboration funded through University of New Hampshire/National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Cooperative Program on use of remote sensing and modeling to support salt marsh restoration.
  • SiREM, a division of Geosyntec Consultants and the University of Guelph, Research collaboration funded by the Canadian National Sciences and Engineering Council (NSERC) through an Engage program grant to evaluate the use of automated fermenters to facilitate improved mixing, feeding, and pH and temperature controls combined with continuous cell harvesting.
  • SiREM, a division of Geosyntec Consultants and the University of Guelph, Research collaboration funded by the Ontario Centres of Excellence to improve bioaugmentation processes for the remediation of groundwater impacted by the presence of chloroform and dichloromethane.
