PRINCETON, N.J. — Mary DeFlaun, PhD, and Daniel Elliott, PhD, will be presenting during the short course, "Innovative Technologies for Site Remediation," at Rutgers University on December 8, 2008. In addition to university students, regulators and other consultants are expected to attend the day-long seminar.
Mary, a Geosyntec principal, will be sharing new techniques in the bioremediation of recalcitrant contaminants. She is highly experienced in the development and implementation of in situ remediation technologies with over 20 years of related experience. Mary is a leader in the firm's development and implementation practice for in situ remediation approaches to address recalcitrant organics and metals, including monitored natural attenuation (MNA), biostimulation and bioaugmentation.
Daniel, a Geosyntec associate, will be discussing the treatment of recalcitrant contaminants using zero-valent iron and other reducing strategies. He has over 12 years of experience performing environmental due diligence assessments, characterizing and quantifying environmental liability, and leading internal compliance audits. He is recognized as a leading practitioner in the application of the emerging nZVI technology and has managed numerous bench-scale, pilot scale, and "first-to-field" technology assessments.
