A. Scott Weber is
currently Director of the UB Center for Integrated Waste Management,
Executive Director of the New York State Center for Hazardous
Waste Management, and Professor of Civil Structural, and Environmental
Engineering at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Dr.
Weber received his B.S. in Civil Engineering in 1977 and an M.S.
in Sanitary Engineering in 1978 from Virginia Polytechnic Institute
and State University. In 1983 he received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering
from the University of California, Davis. His teaching responsibilities
are in the areas of environmental engineering with a specialization
in biological process analysis and design for soil and water bioremediation.
His current research efforts are directed towards biodegradation
of chemicals in water and soil.
Dr. Weber has conducted
research at laboratory and field scale on a variety topics related
to domestic wastewater treatment and contaminant biodegradation.
A current major focus of his research is related to PCB partitioning.
Over the past five years, he has conducted research on treatment
technologies for PCB contaminated groundwater and the effects
of particulate sorption on these processes, equilibrium aqueous
partitioning of PCBs at industrial sites, and more recently, how
long term passive biodegradation affects partitioning of PCBs.
With his collaborators, his work on PCB availability was awarded
the Silver Medal Award in February 1999 by the Consulting Engineers
Council of New York and the Honor Research Award by the National
Academy of Environmental Engineers in April 1999.. Dr. Weber served
as the site monitor for a unique collaborative New York State
Department of Environmental Conservation and United State Environmental
Protection Agency demonstration project for in-situ and ex-situ
bioremediation technologies of chlorinated organics.
Professor Weber also
has been active in seeking alternative approaches for stimulating
redevelopment of brownfields. In addition to his research on remediation
technologies which could be used at these sites, Dr. Weber has
recently co-authored a report on the role of non-profits could
play in brownfield redevelopment. Through the UB Center for Integrated
Waste Management he has provided technical assistance to the Cattagragus
Creek Task Force and the South Side High School Advisory Committee
on how communities should deal with contaminated properties.
Weber is a former
member of the Water Environment Research Foundation's Board of
Directors and is past Chair of the Water Environment Research
Foundation's Research Council. In addition he is past Chair of
the Water Environment Federation's Literature Review Committee.
He has served as a consultant to many industries, consultants,
and government agencies on environmentally related issues.
As Director of the
UB Center for Integrated Waste Management and Executive Director
of the New York Center for Hazardous Waste Management, Dr. Weber
administers research programs aimed at developing new and improved
methods and technologies for industrial and hazardous waste management,
including those that reduce the generation of waste, recover and
recycle materials from wastestreams, enable safe and permanent
cleanup of inactive hazardous waste disposal sites, and treat
waste so that they can be disposed of properly. The UB Center
for Integrated Waste Management has co-sponsored an NYS Environmental
Bond Act Seminar at the University at Buffalo.
