FMC Corporation Announces Soil And Groundwater Educational Webinar Series

FMC Corporation is pleased to announce that on Tuesday, June 4, it will host the second in its series of ongoing educational webinars on soil and groundwater remediation. The session will be hosted by Dan Leigh, technical applications manager at FMC, and will cover the basics of anaerobic bioremediation.

The goal of the Soil and Groundwater Remediation webinar series is to create thoughtful and engaging conversation about the science behind some of today's most innovative remedial treatments, leveraging FMC’s internal and external network of experts to promote education and understanding among consulting engineers, owners of remediation sites, regulators and others in the remediation field. Each webinar will follow a similar format, featuring a scientific discussion on the topic of choice led by an industry expert, followed by the presentation of a case study and concluding with a question and answer session.

“The webinar series exemplifies FMC’s continuing commitment to promoting scientific innovation and education in the remediation field,” says Philip Block, director of technology. “Our first webinar demonstrated the need for educational conversations such as these, and the time spent answering questions, nearly an hour, shows that those in the industry are eager to engage. The series will be a valuable learning opportunity for both FMC and our partners.”

In step with this commitment to education and innovation, and in an effort to provide structured, strategic support to the Soil and Groundwater business, FMC has recently made two personnel changes. Scott Steffl has moved into the role of business director for Soil and Groundwater Remediation. Steffl, who has been with FMC for more than 20 years, will be directly responsible for all commercial matters related to environmental soil and groundwater remediation business and for driving growth and development strategies. Additionally, Dan Leigh has joined FMC as a technical applications manager to enhance FMC’s support in military site remediation. Leigh has more than 30 years of experience in the field with a particular focus in bioremediation and biogeochemical degradation.

“We’re confident with the team we have driving our Soil and Groundwater Remediation business,” says Amy O’Shea, division manager. “These personnel changes reflect FMC Soil and Groundwater Remediation’s continued efforts to pursue technical excellence in the field and to be an industry leader in solutions that support the ever-changing landscape of environmental remediation.”
