2018 Battelle Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds

OBG exhibited and presented at Battelle’s Remediation Conference

OBG sponsored, exhibited, and presented at Battelle’s Eleventh International Conference on the Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds on April 8-12, 2018 in Palm Springs, California. This biennial conference is one of the largest, most comprehensive meetings on the application of innovative technologies and approaches for the characterization, monitoring, and management of chlorinated and complex sites.

During the conference, OBG experts delivered three platform presentations, exhibited five posters, and co-chaired four technical sessions. The OBG team also challenged fellow conference attendees with four trivia games, including two on emerging contaminants (focused on 1,4-dioxane and PFAS), one on polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and another on bioremediation.
