Colorado Environmental Management Society Networking Event: NOVA: Power Surge: Are we Finally on the Brink of a Clean Energy Revolution?
Can emerging technology defeat global warming? Are we finally on the brink of a green-energy “power surge,” or is it all a case of too little, too late?
From solar panel factories in China to a carbon capture-and-storage facility in the Sahara desert to massive wind and solar installations in the United States, NOVA travels the globe to reveal the surprising technologies that just might turn back the clock on climate change. NOVA will focus on the latest and greatest innovations, including everything from artificial trees to green reboots of familiar technologies like coal and nuclear energy. Can our technology, which helped create this problem, now solve it?
When: Wednesday, April 12th, 2017 (there will be no CEMS luncheon in April)
Last day to register is April 6th!

CEMS March Luncheon – Update on High Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC) Technologies, the New Optical Image Profiler Tool for Identifying LNAPL Fluorescence, and Implications for In-Situ Remediation – March 14 | COEMS
High Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC) tools used for environmental site investigation have significantly improved our ability to generate detailed Conceptual Site Models (CSM) that can be used to better understand subsurface contaminant distribution, soil lithologic and hydraulic characteristics. Previously, some tools were available, such as cone penetrometer (CPT), that could push tools using static weight. The advent of percussion hammer direct-push technologies created challenges for these tools. CPT cannot be driven using percussion hammer rigs, but numerous tools have since been developed that can measure soil conductivity, VOCs, LNAPL and hydraulic properties. These tools include the Membrane Interface Probe (MIP), Hydraulic Profiling Tool (HPT), Laser Induce Fluorescence (LIF). More recently, more sensors have been combined into one tool, sensitivity has improved, and the overall robust nature of these tools and configurations have improved. Digital data acquisition and output methods have also significantly improved the data generated by these tools. The most recent advance in technology released in 2016 is the new Optical Image Profiler (OIP) tool, which maps the ultraviolet fluorescence response of LNAPL (fuels, oils, etc.). This tool provides a response similar to the LIF-UVOST (Ultra Violet Optical Screening Tool) for petroleum NAPLS using the same principals of petroleum fluorescence, using different optical sensing technologies. An overview of the current state of HRSC technologies will be presented with emphasis on the latest tools and developments, including a comparison of LIF-UVOST and OIP data acquired at the same site. Examples of data applications will also be presented along with a discussion on how to apply the data to in-situ remediation applications.
Registration is free and lunch will be served.
February 21 beginning at 11:15 am
The workshop will be located at:
Holiday Inn Denver, 7390 W. Hampden Ave., Lakewood, CO 80227
February 23 beginning at 11:15 am
The workshop will be located at:
Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown Hotel 2600 Louisiana Blvd NE Albuquerque, NM 87110
Speakers for this event include,
We would like to invite you to meet us at the upcoming Remediation Workshops where we will be speaking the week of January 9th. We will be stopping in Dallas, Austin, and Houston on January 10-12th. Over 6,000 people have registered for our workshops in North America and there is typically a good mix of consultants, regulators, and industrial managers. There is NO CHARGE for attending. A hot lunch buffet is provided and you’ll also receive a certificate for 4 PDH credits. These are half-day events starting at 11 am for registration and lunch then, ending at 5pm with some after-hours networking.
John Fontana will be giving a talk at all three events! His presentation on
High Resolution Site Characterization Tools
for Conceptual Site Models and Remediation Design
will provide creative solutions to your site closure goals.
Other topics include Surfactant Enhanced Push-Pull, Chemical & Physical Stabilization, Trap & Treat Technologies, and Method 5035 VOC Sampling. To see additional presentation titles, click on any of the registration links below.
