Dr. J. Greg Booth
Dr. Booth is an environmental biogeochemist with 20 years of professional experience in basic and applied research, teaching and consulting in the fields of coastal and environmental biogeochemistry, radiochemistry applied to particle transport in fluvial systems, applied remote sensing of earth systems, soil and groundwater remediation, and environmental remediation chemistry/technology development and commercialization. Dr. Booth received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Geosciences/Geology from Southeastern Missouri State University. He received a Master of Science Degree in Aquatic Toxicology/Environmental Geochemistry and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Chemical Oceanography/Coastal Biogeochemistry from Louisiana State University.
Dr. Booth was employed as a Physical Scientist in the Earth System Science Office (ESSO), with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during 1997 – 1999; and in 2000, he began working in the environmental remediation/consulting industry. His early involvement was focused on the subsurface biogeochemistry associated with starting up and operating a very large engineered in-situ bioremediation system (~ 2000 linear feet of bio-wall) for the destruction of a mixed plume of chlorinated ethene and methane compounds in soil and groundwater beneath an active chemical manufacturing facility. He has been active with a wide range of projects involving governmental entities (e.g. NASA, EPA, NSF, Navy, Air Force), engineers, scientists, academicians, regulators and consultants, on an international scale. Dr. Booth has led efforts for the research and development of environmental remediation technologies and products, as well as, commercialization, manufacturing and site specific implementation guidance for end users. Dr. Booth has been responsible for identifying and assessing technologies and products for further development and/or strategic partner alliances focused on environmental remediation and site assessment.
Dr. Booth is a leader in the commercialization and implementation of the NASA patented Emulsified Zero Valent Iron (EZVI) technology. He has actively worked with the EZVI technology since 2003, for use as an in-situ halogenated hydrocarbon DNAPL destruction approach. Dr. Booth has also been actively involved with the development of the NASA environmental remediation technology, Activated Metal Treatment System (AMTS), which is focused on the in-situ destruction of PCB’s and other more recalcitrant compounds in our environment.
In November 2015, Dr. Booth accepted the position of Senior Vice President with Provectus Environmental Products, Inc. (PEP) to commercialize genuine advances in ISCO and ISCR technologies with a focus on continually evolving remediation chemistries that are safer to implement, provide highly effective results and are cost efficient.
