WEDNESDAY MORNING CONCURRENT TECHNICAL SESSIONS

Wednesday Morning Concurrent Sessions
Sessions 2A, 2B, and 2C took place Wednesday morning.

SESSION 2A

Topic:  Near- and Long-Term Management Strategies for Range Contaminants
Chair:
  Dr. Thomas Jenkins, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers / Engineer Research and Development Center / Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory
Keynote:  Ms. Lori Macadam, Canadian Department of National Defence / Land Force Command / Director Land Environment

DoD ranges are to be managed and operated in such a way as to support their long-term viability and utility to meet the national defense mission while protecting human health and the environment. Assessing and managing the environmental impacts of munitions use are central activities to achieving range sustainability. This session will focus on sampling methodologies applicable to ranges, as well as near- and long-term strategies to treat or contain munitions constituents.

SESSION 2B

Topic:  Environmental Impact of Fuel Use in Military Engines (Part I)
Chairs:  Dr. Julian Tishkoff, Air Force Office of Scientific Research / Directorate of Aerospace, Chemical and Materials Sciences AND Dr. Thomas Litzinger, The Pennsylvania State University / Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering
Keynote:  Dr. Thomas Litzinger

Air emissions associated with the combustion of fuels in gas turbine and piston engines are significant issues for the Department of Defense because of their adverse environmental and health effects. Alternative fuels and advanced military engines are two of the major approaches being investigated to reduce air emissions without sacrificing mission performance. This two-part session will highlight recent efforts to measure, characterize, and reduce air emissions from military engines as well as to obtain a fundamental understanding that can lead to the reduction of emissions.

SESSION 2C

Topic:  Environmental Issues Associated with Deployed Bases and Forces
Chair:  Mr. William Goran, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers / Engineer Research and Development Center / Construction Engineering Research Laboratory
Keynote:  Mr. Kurt Kinnevan, U.S. Army Engineer School / Directorate of Environmental Integration

Deployed forces face environmental challenges that require different approaches and solutions than those typically employed by military Services on installations within the continental United States. This session will highlight the unique environmental issues confronting terrestrial and maritime deployed forces and will provide insight into available innovative solutions and needed technology development in renewable energy sources and energy conservation, potable water access and water re-use, and solid and hazardous waste and emissions reductions.
