EA Nationally Recognized with Three Awards for Outstanding Business Achievement
Hunt Valley, Maryland (14 April 2020)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that it was recently honored with three Business Achievement Awards for 2019: two by the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) and one by the Climate Change Business Journal (CCBJ).
EA was honored by EBJ in the category of Technology Merit for successfully demonstrating the effectiveness of thermal desorption/oxidation technology to efficiently remove and destroy per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from solid media, such as soil and granular activated carbon. The efficacy of the technology was confirmed through pilot-scale treatability testing conducted by EA under a Strategic Environmental Research and Development research project.
EBJ also recognized EA for its Social Contribution in recognition of raising $90,000 for Water For People to address today’s global water and sanitation challenges. The funds were donations given in support of the company-sponsored ultra-cycling team, which successfully finished the Race Across America. The EA-sponsored team completed the cross-country race in 7 days, 20 hours, and 44 minutes and was supported by a crew that included 10 current and retired EA employees.
CCBJ recognized EA for Advancing Best Practices in Coastal Resiliency for laying the foundation for a regional strategy to address sea-level rise and shoreline stabilization in the Northern Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland. Applying a “science to solutions” process to assist Harford County, Maryland in building a greater margin of safety against sea-level rise for the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground and surrounding communities, the long-range plan identifies associated risks and provides guidance for the incorporation of resilience measures into future infrastructure planning.
“We greatly appreciate these recognitions from EBJ and CCBJ. Two of the awards are the direct result of our efforts to advance science and engineering in important societal environmental areas—emerging contaminants and climate change,” commented Michael Battle, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “The third celebrates the incredible energy and philanthropic spirit of our employee-owners who, through a series of unique fundraising and education efforts, raised awareness and needed funds for Water For People’s important global mission. We have nothing less than total admiration for the riders, crew, and all the generous financial contributors.”
