Battelle 2022 – The Gang is Back Together!

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and we can say that is very true for the RPI Group. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds (May 22-26, 2022 / Palm Springs, CA) for a really big reunion at our booth (spaces 611 and 613). Stop by and get the 411 on Trap & Treat® BOS 100®, BOS 200®, CAT 100, and our newest innovation BOS 200+®. This May, we will celebrate our 20th year as THE pioneers of activated carbon-based in situ remediation products. If you are attending, we’ve provided a list (below) of RPI Group-related platform presentations and posters.

Short Course

The ITRC Guidance: Implementing Advanced Site Characterization Tools

Date: ITRC Advanced Site Characterization Tools course at the Battelle Chlorinated Conference, Palm Springs, California, May 22-26, 2022.

Instructors: James Finegan (Kleinfelder), Maile Gee (California Regional Water Quality Control Board), Lizanne Simmons (Kleinfelder), and Ed Winner (Remediation Products, Inc./USA)

Course Objective: This course will encourage the use of advanced site characterization tools (ASCTs) in the areas of direct sensing, surface geophysics, borehole geophysics, and remote sensing to improve the participant’s ability to appropriately select and apply ASCTs. Within this objective is the introduction to the ITRC’s ASCT document, website, and training videos.
