CDM Smith at Battelle Bioremediation Symposium

April 1, 2019

BALTIMORE, Maryland—This April, more than a dozen CDM Smith scientists and engineers will attend the Inter­na­tional Symposium on Biore­me­di­a­tion and Sustainable Envi­ron­men­tal Tech­nolo­gies. Since the first event nearly three decades ago, Battelle's Biore­me­di­a­tion Symposium has been the premier gathering of the world's top experts in envi­ron­men­tal remediation. Our experts are excited to present on the cutting-edge research listed below; click on the links for full abstracts and download the schedule for full detail on the dates and times of CDM Smith presentations.
