Spills and Soil Contamination – an ION Science Envirotech Online Webinar
Statistics from the Department of Transportation reveal that 21,539 incidents involving hazardous materials occurred in 2021 in the United States alone. These impacts can have a detrimental effect on the environment and public health, in the long and short term. As businesses and individuals are increasingly scrutinized to meet tougher environmental goals, mitigating and preventing hazardous materials incidents is a key step in creating a cleaner, greener future.
