Envirofest 2012 will be held on September 20th at Geotech Environmental Equipment.  Envirofest is the annual professional networking event of the Rocky Mountain Association of Environmental Professionals (RMAEP).

Envirofest is an exciting opportunity for environmental professionals to network, learn, and share appetizers and cocktails with environmental and engineering organizations and consulting firms, government agencies, academic institutions, and job seekers!  We are expecting over 100 attendees to the Envirofest event this year.


Speakers and topics include:

  • Sharon Valverde - Senior Environmental Risk Advisor, JP Morgan Chase
    Environmental Due Diligence – A View from the Banker’s Side of the Fence
  • Kemper Will - Environmental Attorney, Burns Figa Will
    A New Look at Remediation Goals
    Revisiting remediation goals and options in Colorado’s regulatory climate – a legal perspective.
  • Nancy Prince - Local Government Liaison, Colorado Oil and Gas Commission
    Colorado state Oil and Gas regulations continue to evolve as new drilling and completion techniques bring this industrial activities closer to urban neighborhoods. Updates will include notification rules recently implemented, and setback and other rule changes presently under consideration.
  • Daniel Horsey - President, 3 Story Stage
    Stories that Inspire, Thrill, Connect, and Even Sell. We grow up loving stories, and as adults we think in narrative. When the personal, professional, and political stakes are high, remember that bullet points, lectures, and rational arguments are the least effective ways to communicate. Instead, stick to stories.

Geotech Environmental Equipment Hosts the USTDA China Groundwater Protection & Remediation Reverse Trade Mission at Geotech’s Denver Headquarters in July, 2012

The United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) sponsored a reverse trade mission (RTM) to the United States for a delegation of senior Chinese officials, including those from the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP). The RTM helped to familiarize the officials with U.S. best practices and technologies in the areas of groundwater management, protection and remediation. This activity introduced U.S. technologies, services and products that will support China's efforts to identify and develop comprehensive regulatory frameworks, methodologies and solutions for groundwater management and soil remediation to better protect the nation's water resources.

Protecting groundwater quality from further decline is one of China’s top environmental priorities. MEP released a National Groundwater Pollution Prevention Plan which specifically addresses groundwater investigation pilot projects. The plan calls for nationwide implementation of groundwater monitoring, pollution control and remediation systems to be in place by 2020. In support of this groundwater initiative, the government plans to invest over US $5.5 billion through 2020. The market for U.S. products and services that support China’s groundwater protection and development plans is estimated to be over US $300 million.

Delegates represented the following organizations:

  • Pollution Control and Prevention Department,
    China Ministry of Environmental Protection (CMEP)
  • International Cooperation Department (CMEP)
  • Sino-Japanese Environmental Protection Center
  • Environmental Planning Institute
  US Trade and Development Agency


Delegates Lunch

The delegates had the opportunity to tour Geotech facilities and see presentations related to groundwater remediation. They were able to learn more about the equipment Geotech designs, manufactures and distributes which are used in these processes. Geotech learned much about the upcoming remediation sector opportunities in China and met with key decision makers and managers.
