Green Remediation: Sustainable Environmental Practices for Remediation of Contaminated Sites
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents sustainable practices to minimize air emissions, energy consumption, land impact, water resources and material consumption.


The practice of "green remediation" uses innovative cleanup strategies to consider all environmental effects of remedy implementation for contaminated sites and incorporates options to maximize the net environmental benefit of cleanup actions and reducing project costs.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to engineers involved with the investigation, design, construction, operation, and monitoring phases of site remediation regardless of the selected cleanup remedy.
