Over the past 30 years, a tremendous amount of research has been conducted to better understand the impacts of both legacy and emerging chemicals of concern in the environment. Treatment methods are more effective with more options; the occurrence, fate and transport of these chemicals are better understood; and the ability for DoD to manage impacted sites has improved. This session highlighted major advances in treatment of complex sites, bioremediation, thermal treatment, and chemical transport modeling.
