Sunday, April 8 – Thursday, April 12 In Palm Springs, California, Battelle is holding their Eleventh International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds this year. This conference is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive meetings on applying new technologies and approaches for characterization, monitoring, and management of chlorinated and complex sites.
The conference features two Roux presentations. Monday will showcase a poster presentation by Timothy Adams, P.G., Principal Hydrogeologist at our Oak Brook Illinois office, entitled “Post-Remedy Performance Results Comparing Soil Blending versus Direct Injection ISCR Source Area Treatment for 1,1,2-TCA.”
In addition, “Limitations and Lessons Learned from Applying In-situ Chemical Reduction to Treat VOCs and Metals in a Geochemically Complex Aquifer” will be presented by Thomas Patterson, P.E., Principal Engineer from our Logan Township, New Jersey office on Wednesday.

Tuesday, October 24 – Wednesday, October 25 Roux’s Timothy Adams, Principal Hydrogeologist, will be speaking at the 19th Annual Railroad Environmental Conference (RREC) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. On Tuesday, Timothy will present on “Remediation of 1,1,2 TCA via Soil Blending and Direct Injection at a Rail Car Cleaning Facility” with Dave Modrowski of Union Tank Car Company. The presentation will discuss chlorinated organic compounds (CVOCs) and how they were treated at an active rail car maintenance facility.
RREC 2017 will feature presentations by railroaders, consulting engineers, academics, and others involved in all aspects of railroad environmental topics. Over 500 people attended the conference last year; this year’s conference is expected to be the largest gathering of the railroad environmental community.

Brownfield sites with complex physical settings, such as weathered or fractured bedrock and deep contaminants, complicated chemical and physical composition of contaminants, and operating or redevelopment complications, can pose problems for the effective use of traditional remedies. These challenging sites require innovative remedial technologies and creative thinking to reach remediation goals and allow redevelopment to occur on schedule and on budget.
“Innovative Remediation Strategies at Redevelopment Sites,” written by Roux’s Timothy Adams, P.G. and Anne E. Viner, Esq. of WCD Group, examines three Brownfields sites in different U.S. regions, which each required creative remedial approaches to treat volatile organic compounds (VOCs), conquer the challenges posed, and allow redevelopment to proceed.
