Volker Schrenk became interested in environmental topics at a very early age, which is why he decided to study geoecology. He wrote his dissertation on the topic of remediation of contaminated sites, which, together with land management and land recycling, is one of his areas of expertise. At CDM Smith he is divisional manager in the Environment and Energy business area.
With his professional competence and many years of experience in project management, he accompanies numerous projects such as the preparation for construction and reuse of brownfields or groundwater remediation. He is responsible for project management projects. An example of this is the remediation of a CHC damage by soil vapour extraction combined with steam-air injection in the old town of Oberursel and subsequent ISCO remediation (in-situ chemical oxidation) of the aquifer at the site. As a subproject manager, he is also involved in the construction of the new Terminal 3 in Frankfurt, where he is dealing with the handling of PFC or PFAS-contaminated soil material and the implementation of a soil management system.
