Anaerobic Biobarrier Application at an Air Force Base using 3-D Microemulsion in Fractured Granite

REGENESIS is pleased to bring you a remediation case study webinar on the use of injectable electron donor technology and bioaugmentation for the treatment of chlorinated solvents and perchlorate in a challenging geologic setting. The project site is located at Edwards Air Force Base in the western part of the Mojave Desert of California. The pilot-scale remediation program was managed by AECOM, a global, Fortune 500 company which provides a high-level of experience and technical expertise in environmental remediation. The webinar speakers include, Ms. Rebecca Mora and Ms. Holly Holbrook who are both environmental engineers at AECOM in Orange, CA. Read on for more information and click here to register in advance.

A little more about our AECOM Guest Speakers

Ms. Rebecca Mora is a senior environmental engineer at AECOM with over 15 years of environmental investigation and remediation experience. She specializes in design and implementation of innovative technologies, particularly for chlorinated solvent, 1,4-dioxane, and perchlorate-contaminated sites, as well as innovative site characterization techniques and use of environmental molecular diagnostic tools (e.g., CSIA and molecular biological tools). In addition to project work, Ms. Mora is the leader of the AECOM In Situ Bioremediation Technical Practice Group, a member of and internet-based trainer for the Interstate Technology Regulatory Cooperation (ITRC) Environmental Molecular Diagnostics (EMDs) group, and part of the AECOM/UCLA research team for biodegradation of 1,4-dioxane.

Ms. Holly Holbrook is an environmental engineer at AECOM with over eight years of experience in environmental investigation and remediation. She specializes in design and field implementation of in situ remediation technologies using a variety of in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO), in situ bioremediation (ISB), and in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) amendments.
