Aamod Sonawane is an environmental engineer specializing in waste-to-energy, landfill engineering, and other solid waste management practices. For two decades, he has been finding solutions to every solid waste problem imaginable, from liner design to construction services for pump station and pipeline projects to leachate collection and treatment.
He has assisted in the design and permitting of various solid waste projects, including lined landfills, liner design, transfer stations, landfill closures, landfill expansions, groundwater contamination assessments, drainage systems, gas collection systems, and leachate collection and treatment systems.
Aamod boasts a resume of over 1,000 projects completed, and he is inspired by “being able to sleep well at night thinking I did something good today that has a positive impact on human health and the environment in which we live,” he says.
“I had a huge fascination with environmental engineering as I was growing up. I was fortunate to earn my MS degree at UCF with Dr. Reinhart, aka the Landfill Lady, as my advisor. CDM Smith, which is a relatively big company but also functions as a family, gave me the perfect platform to launch a successful career,” Aamod says.
