Nano-remediation for Site Cleanup and Redevelopment

Nano-remediation for Site Cleanup and Redevelopment
Wednesday, September 21, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET

Nano-remediation has now moved from development into field demonstrations. Drs. Chiang and Elliott will discuss the use of nanoparticle-based agents for site remediation in situ. The panelists will review particle sizes, the sources of nanoscale materials, and how they are selected. The discussion will also focus on the advantages and limitations of nano-remediation when used for site cleanup, and the applications of nano zero-valent iron (nZVI). The challenges, key factors in designing delivery approaches, regulatory constraints and costs will also be communicated. Finally, a case study of the field use of nano-remediation will be presented.

Daniel W. Elliott, Ph.D., BCEEM, Senior Consultant, Geosyntec
Dan has over 30 years of experience as an environmental engineer from the diverse perspectives of industry, consulting, and a major research university. He manages complex environmental investigation and remediation projects for clientele in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and manufacturing industries. He is an expert in the fate, treatment, and degradation of organic contaminants in aqueous media including active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). Dan co-led the first field-scale demonstration of the nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) technology at a manufacturing site in Trenton, NJ in 2000. He has published and spoken extensively on the pros, cons, and needs for the technology since then.
