Paul has 43 years as an environmental professional, 39 years in the cement industry. He has been involved with cement solidification/stabilization (S/S) of contaminated sites in the US for more than 38 years. He presently is the U.S. Environmental Remediation Specialist for LafargeHolcim with responsibility throughout North America for the management of S/S projects. For more than two years, Paul has actively conducted research to determine the best cementitious mix designs for the encapsulation of PFAS in landfill leachate. This has resulted in successful field trials, using the treated leachate as an alternate daily cover. This process has a patent pending.
Paul has been actively involved in resource recovery type projects for more than 39 years. He has used cement products to make fertilizer from cow manure, treat waste at licensed treatment facilities, and encapsulate millions of tons of contaminated soils, sludges, dredge spoils and other media.
Paul and his wife have six children and five grandchildren. To date, none of them have expressed a significant interest in Solidification/Stabilization.
