On Tuesday, October 4 Roux’s Adam Love, Ph.D. presented at the Northwest Remediation Conference in Seattle, Washington. The conference’s educational sessions covered three topics: Remediation Technologies & Techniques, Science & Regulation, and Brownfield Redevelopment. Love spoke at the conference under the topic of Technologies & Techniques, in a presentation entitled “The Role of Environmental Forensics.” Sophisticated analytical methods for identifying different types of environmental contamination were addressed in this presentation, followed by how contaminant “fingerprinting” could lead to:
- Finding a contaminant’s original source;
- Identifying potentially responsible parties;
- Supporting site investigation; and
- Supporting regulatory and legal proceedings.
Presented by the Northwest Environmental Business Council and the Washington Dept. of Ecology, the Northwest Remediation Conference is a technical conference that brings cleanup professionals, regulators, and public sector property owners together to share knowledge, best practices, build relationships, and foster partnerships.
