If you’re interested in top developments in environmental science and technology, join us next week! Integral Principals Bridgette DeShields and Avram Frankel, P.E., will chair sessions on the latest technical strategies on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) at the upcoming virtual conference hosted by the Association for Environmental Health and Sciences Foundation (AEHS). Ms. DeShields will also chair a session on vapor intrusion. In separate platform sessions, Andrew Halmstad, E.I.T., will discuss bioremediation research, while Mandy Tulich will showcase effective 3-dimensional modeling.
The 30th Annual International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy, and Air will be held on March 22-25, 2021. Sign up for chat sessions and an automatic entry for a free drawing by visiting Integral’s virtual booth. For presentation details, see below.
