Battelle 2018 – It’s a Really Big Show!

The Beatles won’t be there and those mid-century homes where the “Rat Pack” once partied are now vacation rentals. Nevertheless, the Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds (April 8 -12, 2018 / Palm Springs, CA) is a “Really Big Show”. Our exhibit (spaces 713 and 715) is conveniently located in the middle of the exhibit hall and close to food and beverages. Stop by and get the 411 on Trap & Treat® BOS 100®, BOS 200®, and our newest innovation, CAT 100. This May, we will celebrate our sixteenth year as THE pioneers of activated carbon-based in situ remediation products. If you are fortunate enough to be in attendance, I’ve provided a list (below) of RPI Group-related platform presentations and posters.
