Course rating of 0 Vendor rating of 5

In this course the following attributes will be presented: physical-chemical principles, design of unit processes, waste types, cost, time to complete, advantages/disadvantages, removal/destruction efficiencies, and current experience data

Course Outline
The environmental condition of property is an important issue in real estate transactions and development.  In view of the environmental liabilities for contaminated soil and groundwater, regulatory non compliance, and buried wastes it is necessary to have the knowledge of practical and proven remediation technologies most often used at contaminated sites. Objective

To provide participants with in-depth knowledge of groundwater and soil remediation techniques.

Program Outline

Faculty: Dr. Nasrat Hijazi, President TDA Associates & Professor, University of Toronto Scarborough

Day I      

Science Basis Of Remediation Techniques
• Physical-Chemical Properties of chemicals of concern, ground water,
   and  soil
• Transport and migration in the subsurface
• LNAPL/DNAPL/dissolved contaminants
• Biological and chemical natural attenuation reactions
Design And Application Of Soil Remediation Techniques
• Soil vapour extraction (SVE)
• Enhanced SVE
• Air injection/SVE
• Air sparging/SVE
• Directional drilling/SVE
• Dual phase extraction
• Pneumatic and hydraulic fracturing/SVE
• Thermal enhancement/SVE
Day II
Design And Application Of Groundwater Remediation Techniques
• Hydraulic containment
• Granular activated carbon
• Air stripping
• Oxidation/reduction
• Precipitation
• Ion exchange
• Permeable Reactive Barriers (PRBs)
Bioremediation Of Soil And Groundwater
• Scientific principles of bioremediation
• Kinetics and calculations of bioremediation times
• Natural attenuation (evidence, mechanisms, & enhancements)
• Biofarming
• Biopiles
• Co-metabolism of Chlorinated hydrocarbons
• LNAPL/DNAPL effects

There will be a one-hour lunch break each day in addition to a refreshment and networking break during each morning and afternoon session.

After Participating in the Course, You will be Able to:
Perform basic design, evaluation and selection of appropriate remediation techniques for
contaminated soil and groundwater.
Identify key data requirements and design criteria for remediation technologies.
Develop and use the selection criteria for the most appropriate remediation technique for your
Apply the concepts, methodologies and technologies presented
and reinforced by case studies during the course

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
