A sampling of my presentations are summarized below. Links to the presentation handouts, including slides, for two remediation seminars are provided. Other presentations, such as marketing presentations and testimony, are described (and in some cases linked to) on the Projects pages. Conference platform presentations, accompanied by written proceedings, are listed on the Publications page.

Remediation Seminars

I co-wrote/co-presented over 100 seminars on remediating MTBE, TBA, ethanol, and/or other VOCs in the United States, Canada, England, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, and the Czech Republic (see list). Some were presented to regulatory agencies, others at environmental conferences, and many were held in private venues for mixed audiences of regulators, industry representatives, educators, remediation technology vendors, lawyers, and environmental consultants. I arranged the seminars in the United States and Canada.

Links to handouts for two seminars I co-presented at the November 2006 National Ground Water Association Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Chemicals in Ground Water conference are provided. Click here for the handout for the TBA/MTBE/Ethanol Remediation Seminar and click here for the handout for the Bioremediation and Monitored Natural Attenuation of Volatile Organic Compounds Seminar.

The seminars were typically four hours long (but sometimes as short as two hours), delivered by two to four presenters.  We discussed contaminant physical and chemical properties, contaminant fate and transport, site assessment, available technologies to remediate soil and groundwater, and remediation case studies. Attendees came from diverse backgrounds, and many attended more than once.

Other

Each year from 2008 through 2012, organized and moderated a 1.5- to 2-hour-long session titled “Regulatory Panel Discussion: Grappling With Vapor Intrusion” at the Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water, and Energy in Amherst, MA. The panel comprised officials from state and federal regulatory agencies who deal with the issue of vapor intrusion.

Gave more than 60 presentations to regulators, consultants, and site owners about bioreactors for treating MTBE, TBA, and other gasoline constituents in groundwater (for more detail and a link to an example presentation, see the Projects—Marketing page).

Testified before legislative committees at the Massachusetts State House on four occasions (for more detail and links to the written testimony, see the Projects—Alternative Energy page).
