For 25 years, Whit­lock has been in­volved in re­search, sci­ence and en­gi­neer­ing with spe­cific emphasis in anaerobic digestion, bio­gas uti­liza­tion and en­ergy man­age­ment op­ti­miza­tion. He pre­vi­ously served as a Resid­u­als Re­source Re­cov­ery Tech­nol­ogy Lead at CH2M Hill, uti­liz­ing his waste­water de­sign and plan­ning ex­pe­ri­ence to cre­ate sus­tain­able en­ergy man­age­ment plans for waste­water util­i­ties around the world. 

“Dru’s broad range of ex­pe­ri­ence in the West, cou­pled with his in­volve­ment with biosolids pro­jects on an in­ter­na­tional scale, will greatly en­hance our biosolids team and help CDM Smith de­liver re­sults for our clients around the U.S.,” says Peter Loomis, CDM Smith vice pres­i­dent and tech­ni­cal strat­egy leader for biosolids and bioen­ergy. 

“I’m proud to join an or­ga­ni­za­tion whose cul­tural val­ues so closely re­flect my own,” says Whit­lock. “I am ex­cited to build on CDM Smith’s lead­er­ship within the biosolids realm while also fur­ther­ing our client col­lab­o­ra­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.”
