Mr. Ricciardi is a registered Professional Engineer and Licensed Site Professional with 20 years of experience in project management, environmental engineering, remediation system design, and hazardous waste site assessments. Mr. Ricciardi has extensive experience in the design and implementation of remediation alternatives for many PCB contaminated sites and buildings.

He is the Environmental, Geotechnical, and Energy (EG&E) Program Manager at Weston & Sampson Engineers.
TSCA and Emerging Contaminants programming will focus on:
- TSCA/PCBs: The TSCA/PCBs committee will focus on all aspects of PCB remediation the science /abatement including environmental media and building materials. There is a considerable amount of uncertainty in the industry currently regarding the assessment, remediation and disposal practices associated with PCB impacted environmental media and building materials (caulking, paint, concrete, etc.). This EBC group will serve to understand and provide guidance for EPA-compliant approaches for remediation of these sites. A significant focus will be to interact with the EPA Region 1 TSCA administrator on a frequent basis to understand what approaches have been both proposed and approved.
- Emerging Contaminants: Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), including Perfluorinated alkylated substances or PFAS and 1-4 Dioxane, are increasingly being detected at low levels in environmental media at concentrations above EPA/state health advisory levels/cleanup standards. We will focus on the most recent advancements in the science of assessment and remediation for these substances. We will also follow the regulation of these substances by USEPA and state environmental protection agencies.
