Green Remediation: Sustainable Environmental Practices for Remediation of Contaminated Sites
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding of green remediation practices and objectives
- Considerations and methods to reduce air emissions
- Considerations and methods to reduce energy consumption
- Considerations and methods to minimize water resources
- Considerations and methods to reduce impacts on land and ecosystems
- Considerations and methods to minimize material consumption and waste generation
- Best management practices for long-term stewardship actions
In this professional engineering CEU course, you will need to review the USEPA Publication "Green Remediation: Incorporating Sustainable Environmental Practices into Remediation of Contaminated Sites", EPA 542-R-08-002, April 2008.
