Geosyntec Staff Contribute to the 2022 Battelle Chlorinated Conference

Professionals from Geosyntec, will make a substantial technical contribution at the Battelle's Twelfth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds, which will be held May 22 through 26 in Palm Springs, California at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

Geosyntec contributions include two as session chairs, a practitioner serving as short course instructor, 11 platform presentations and 14 poster presentations.

Geosyntec professionals will be at booth 108 to meet with attendees and answer questions about remediation of chlorinated and recalcitrant compounds.

Recognized as the signature forum for the environmental remediation industry, Battelle's Chlorinated Conferenced will explore innovations and technologies to address chlorinated and recalcitrant compounds in the environment. The conference is the premier gathering of environmental professionals researching and applying innovative technologies and approaches for characterization, monitoring, cleanup and management of complex sites contaminated with the most challenging classes of chemicals.
