Please join the Carnegie Mellon University Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation and the Carnegie Mellon Civil and Environmental Engineering Department for a seminar by Pennsylvania State University Professor of Environmental Engineering William Burgos.
Professor, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
Pennsylvania State University
The development of unconventional oil and gas (O&G) resources has fundamentally changed energy production in the United States. This development has led to increased demands for fresh water and increased volumes of O&G wastewater. This talk will present two case studies in Pennsylvania. The first will focus on disposal of wastewater from Marcellus Shale gas wells to surface water, and the second will focus on disposal of conventional O&G wastewater onto roads. See the event website.
Bill Burgos is a professor of Environmental Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University in University Park, PA, where he has worked since 1995. He earned his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Virginia Tech. Prior to that, he worked for the environmental consulting firm Geraghty & Miller in Langhorne, PA for a few years after earning his M.S. in Environmental Engineering (also from Virginia Tech).
His research has focused on the biogeochemistry of contaminant remediation, and more recently on water issues related to unconventional oil & gas development. He is currently the Division Chair for the American Chemical Society’s Geochemistry Division and on the editorial advisory board of Environmental Science & Technology Letters
