SiREM and Tersus Environmental are co-hosting virtual half-day short courses on recent technical advances in the characterization and remediation and monitoring of chlorinated solvent DNAPL sites. Environmental engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, regulators, site managers, scientists and others within the groundwater remediation community will learn about the current thinking and strategies for the characterization and treatment of chlorinated VOCs and DNAPLs..

Phil Dennis and Jeff Roberts (ON) will present “Enhanced Bioremediation of DNAPL Source Zones – Our Evolving Understanding and Increasing Capabilities” and “Bench Scale Studies for DNAPL Source Zones: Lessons Learned for Informing Field Demonstrations” at a SiREM co-sponsored Virtual Short Course on Effective Remediation and Monitoring of Chlorinated Solvent DNAPL Sites – Avoiding Pitfalls and Maximizing Performance on June 15th and 16th from 1:00pm – 3:30pm.

Phil is a Principal Molecular Biologist with more than 20 years of experience focused environmental microbiology, molecular genetic testing, enhanced bioremediation and technology commercialization. He currently directs the molecular testing services, next generation sequencing and is the innovation lead for SiREM’s research and development program. He has also played a leading role in developing relationships with many universities and serves on the Board for University of Waterloo Center for Microbial Research.

Jeff is the Operations Manager at SiREM with extensive technical experience in the laboratory assessment and field implementation of soil, sediment and groundwater remediation technologies at sites containing contaminants including chlorinated solvents, petroleum hydrocarbons, emerging contaminants and other recalcitrant compounds. Over the past 18 years he has conducted and managed hundreds of bench-scale batch and column treatability studies and has technical experience in the growth, scale up and field implementation of several anaerobic microbial cultures for bioremediation remedies. Jeff has several years of passive sampling experience and was a lead member in the development of the SP3™ sampler.
