In just 4 hours our presenters will take you on a journey through the basics of chemistry, the classes, sources and origins of contaminants, natural occurrence, impacts of contaminants on the environment and effects of the environment on contaminants. Part of the time will also be devoted to workshopping the management of analytical samples and interacting with labs. In addition, there will be time for a drink and networking.
Who Should Attend:
Unless you majored in chemistry at university this module is for you. From graduates to seniors and principals this is the essential course for all contaminated land management practitioners.
Dr Brent Davey, Principal Environmental Consultant at Monarc Environmental with over 35 years of experience within the contaminated land consulting industry and a former Regional Director of the Australian Government Analytical Laboratories, working on a range of site assessment, remediation and auditing projects across Australia. He is particularly interested in environmental chemistry, in biological approaches to the detection and remediation of contamination and in the impacts of contaminants in the environment.
Alan Bull is Principal Environmental Consultant at Edge Group with over over 17 years’ experience in various aspects of soil, surface water, groundwater and environmental investigations, remediation and management of projects and programs in Australia and Brazil. He has also worked on natural resource management, water and wastewater treatment efficiency, riparian zone restoration with the re-introduction of endemic species. His experience also includes in depth environmental chemistry, statistical review of data, interpretation and reporting. He has managed various site assessment projects as part of urban rezoning, Environmental Audit processes and complex options assessment for waste management. Additionally, Alan has worked on a major project involving the assessment of poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) present in Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF firefighting foam) in surface water, sediment, soil and groundwater; with a focus on the risk of these compounds to human health and the environment.
