Roux to Present at IPC 2017

Monday, September 25 – Friday, September 29 Roux will be presenting at the 14th International Phytotechnologies Conference (IPC), taking place in Montréal, Canada. Since 2004, the International Phytotechnology Society’s (IPS) annual conferences have been an opportunity for research scientists, engineers, industrials, and practitioners from all over the world to present recent advances in the field of phytotechnologies, i.e. strategic uses of plants and related microorganisms to address environmental issues.

On Tuesday, September 26th, Roux’s Kelly Coulon, Senior Engineer, will be presenting on Natural Colonization in Phytoremediation and Habitat Restoration Projects as part of the Conference’s “Large Scale Phytotechnologies Field Projects” Session. This presentation reviews the role of natural colonization on several completed phytoremediation/habitat restoration projects in the New York City area, and discusses the steps taken to encourage the colonization of desirable (non-invasive) species.

The following day, Amanda Ludlow, Principal Scientist at Roux, will present on Maximizing the “Green” in Green and Sustainable Remediation (GSR) during the “Phytotechnologies:  Role and Challenges” Session. Her presentation will highlight the Best Management Practices (BMPs) recognized in GSR which support the use of vegetation, and walk through a step-by-step quantitative comparison of two remediation alternatives: (1) risk-based phytoremediation cleanup versus (2) excavation and disposal.

Continuing Roux’s Support of CSLI Field Trips

On August 15, Farmingdale State College’s Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) went on a field trip to the Marine Environmental Stewardship Center (MESC) in Mount Sinai, New York, hosted by Coastal Steward Long Island (CSLI). STEP offers academic services and onsite experience for students in grades 7-12 who are interested in science and technology and are local to the Farmingdale area.

The students split up into two groups led by CSLI’s marine educators, experiencing the full package of their marine education programs. The day began with catching and releasing marine organisms in seine nets, followed by visiting the Shellfish Hatchery where students observed muscle dissection and helped to sort oysters. The students then explored the MESC touch tanks, observed and identified plankton with microscopes, watched an educational video on Mount Sinai’s coastal geography, and had some free time to view the MESC fish tanks and play with their many touch-screen games.

Roux is proud to support CSLI’s field trips and their wide range of marine education programs. To learn more about their programs for children of all ages, please click here.
