The Adventus Group joined PE on Thursday in Atlanta to recognize emerging environmental scientists during the 1st RemTEC'09 Remediation Technology Summit. Three students were awarded $500 for the best overall platform and poster presentations by an objective Student Judging Committee.
The judging committee consisted of Pamela Dugan, Ph.D. (Carus Corp.), Phil Block, Ph.D. (FMC Corp.) and PE editor Roy Bigham, and was headed up by Ravi Srirangam, Ph.D. of Adventus.
"These impressive young environmentalists all displayed superb thought leadership and presentation skills. Selecting the winning themes was extremely difficult, although the industry will surely be hearing more from these students in years ahead," said Srirangam.
This year's contest winners were:
- Ms. Kelly Fletcher of the Georgia Institute of Technology, for her platform presentation on Stable Carbon Isotope Fractionation of 1,2-Dichloropropane During Degradation by Dehalococcides Population.
- Ms. Emmie Granbery of the Georgia Institute of Technology, for her poster presentation on Characterization of DNAPL Source Zone Architecture and Associated Plume Response in 2-D Aquifer Cell Experiments.
- Mr. Tanapon Phenrat of Carnegie Mellon University, for his poster presentation on Transport Characteristics of Polyelctrolyte-Modified Fe Nanoparticles at High Particle Concentration in Sand Columns.
