Adventus Americas Inc., a leader in soil, sediment, and groundwater remediation technology, announces that Dr. Stephen Koenigsberg, Vice President, has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award (Industry Sector) by the Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy. The Conference is facilitated by the Association for Environmental Health of Soils which was founded in 1990 and has now evolved into The AEHS Foundation (http://www.aehsfoundation.org).
This award is given to environmental professionals who are deemed to have given significant contribution to a field of science or engineering, as assessed by the level and longevity of contributions, assumption of responsibilities, and volunteerism for charitable organizations and not-for-profit groups in the areas of industry, academia, government and military.
"Steve’s contributions to the development of in situ and on-site remediation products, strategies, and services are recognized internationally" said Dr. Alan Seech, CEO of Adventus Americas Inc., "and his more recent work with advanced diagnostic tools to expedite site closure represents an important part of the future of our industry. We are proud to have Steve’s work recognized by the prestigious AEHS Foundation."
This is the fifth year the award has been presented. Past recipients in 2009 include Deborah A. Cory-Slechta, UMDNJ and Rutgers University in the area of academia, Barbara Beck, Gradient Corporation in the area of industry, John T Wilson, R.S.
