Global environmental remediation expert Peter Storch has been appointed associate technical director with Arcadis Australia’s environmental restoration business.
Mr Storch is a chemical engineer with 25 years’ experience in environmental restoration and design, working across the US, Europe and Australia.
“I am very pleased to welcome Peter Storch to Arcadis and our growing environmental remediation team,” Arcadis managing director environment and project services Malcolm McDowall said.
“Peter is a leading in-situ remediation expert and also has hands-on experience with perfluorooctane sulfonate and perfluorooctanoic acid, two of the many perfluorinated compounds prevalent in contaminated land sites across Australia that have put human health and the environment at risk.
“Contaminated water and land is one of the biggest issues facing Australian urban and infrastructure development, and Peter’s experience will prove invaluable to the growth of our environmental restoration business as we tackle this national issue.”
