Mr. Grant has been with Soil Safe and in the Environmental industry for the past 28 years. His experience in Environmental Regulations and their impact on soil recycling facilities began with the permitting and construction of their first on-site facility located in the City of Salem in 1996. Since that time Mr. Grant has been responsible for managing water and air modeling of 3 new facilities and directing their construction in the field based on that modeling. Since his migration from operations to Vice President of Sales, Mr. Grant is responsible for technical review and consulting on complex remediation projects, including development and review of sampling plans to meet permit requirements and technical review of the analysis results. Mr. Grant’s regulatory responsibilities include mitigating the impacts of emerging contaminants of concern on Soil Safe’s three East Coast facilities, two in New Jersey and one in Maryland, while recycling over 1MM tons of soil per year.
