Sean M. Davenport, Carus

ABC and CAP18 - Two Non-Emulsified Products for Cost-effective Anaerobic Bioremediation
Monday, February 16 at 11:00 a.m. (CST)

Sean is a Technology Development Manager for Carus.  He earned his B.A. in chemistry (ACS certified) from Hendrix College, Conway, AR and his MS in Environmental Science and Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines (CSM), Golden, CO. He has completed all degree and research requirements as a PhD candidate in CSM’s Environmental Science and Engineering Division.

Sean has significant experience in the environmental remediation field with particular expertise with innovative delivery strategies for chemical and biological in situ remediation. His doctoral research focused on the innovated delivery of bioremediation amendments using novel shear-thinning polymers to modify fluid rheology.  He has been an active team member on three DOD-sponsored research projects: two for polymer-enhanced remediation strategies and the other evaluating CRT’s SR-oxidant technology for 1,4-dioxane degradation, with Pamela Dugan serving as co-PI.  Sean has presented his research at numerous national conferences and contributed to the publication of two DOD reports. Sean leads the development of novel biological solutions to solve problems in the remediation and municipal water/wastewater industry.
