"TechDirect has been a great resource for me over my long career (spanning beyond the last 20 years) as it provided highlights to innovative solutions being developed for complex yet all too relevant challenges, gave insights into the cutting edge remedial approaches being developed, and helped identify emerging trends. More importantly, it has served (and I am sure will continue to serve) the global environmental assessment and remediation community by elevating the standard of practice. Well done."

I download documents from each issue since I find them of great interest."
