Lederman, Chair, recently retired as executive director, Hazardous Substance Management Research Center, and executive director, Office of Intellectual Property, New Jersey Institute of Technology. He continues to teach environmental management, policy, and site remediation. He is active as a consultant and is the principal of Peter Lederman & Associates. He has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan. Dr. Lederman has over 50 years of broad experience in all facets of environmental management, control, and policy development; considerable experience in hazardous substance treatment and management as well as process design and development in the petrochemical industry; and over 18 years of experience as an educator. He has industrial experience as a process designer and managed the development of new processes through full-scale plant demonstrations. He is well known for his work as a professor in chemical process design. He led his company’s safety program in the early 1980s. Dr. Lederman is a registered professional engineer, registered professional planner, certified hazardous material manager, and a diplomate in environmental engineering. He has also worked at the federal (EPA) and state levels with particular emphasis on environmental policy. He is a national associate of the National Academies. Otis A. Shelton, Vice Chair, is associate director for safety and environmental services compliance and operational assessments for Praxair, Inc., a position he has held since 1992. In this position, Mr. Shelton is responsible for managing Praxair’s assessment program, which focuses on environmental, operational safety, personnel safety, industrial hygiene, emergency planning, distribution, and medical gases programs. Previously, Mr. Shelton managed Union Carbide Corporation’s regional corporate health, safety, and environmental protection audit program. This program reviewed UCC’s health, safety, and environmental compliance in all UCC’s operations, worldwide. He holds an M.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Houston. He is a fellow of and has served on the board of directors of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and is a member of the National Society of Black Engineers’ National Advisory Board. He was recently elected as secretary of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Charles Barton is currently a senior scientist at Xoma (U.S.) LLC, Berkeley, California. In this capacity he oversees preclinical and clinical studies to determine toxicity/safety of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies. Dr. Barton was previously the Iowa state toxicologist at the Iowa Department of Public Health. He received his Ph.D. in toxicology from the University of Louisiana. In addition to being a certified toxicologist, he is certified in conducting public health assessments, health education activities, and risk assessments; in emergency response to terrorism and emergency response incident command; and in hazardous waste operations and emergency response. In his position as the state toxicologist, Dr. Barton served as the statewide public health resource, providing health consultations and advice to other environment- and health-related agencies, to health-care providers, and to business and industry representatives. Gary S. Groenewold is a staff scientist who has conducted research in surface chemistry, gas-phase chemistry, and secondary ion mass spectrometry at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) since 1991. His research has focused on determining the speciation of absorbed radioactive and toxic metals (U, Np, Pu, Am, Hg, Al, and Cu) and organic compounds (e.g., VX, G agents, HD, organophosphates, amines, and sulfides). Before that, Dr. Groenewold served 3 years in line management at the INL and as the technical leader of an environmental organic analysis group. Before joining the INL, Dr. Groenewold worked in anticancer drug discovery for Bristol-Myers, using mass spectrometry as an identification tool. He received his Ph.D. in chemistry at the University of Nebraska, where he studied ion-molecule condensation and elimination reactions in the gas phase. He has authored 85 scientific publications on these subjects.

Haffenden is an attorney and currently a technical staff member of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Prior to joining Los Alamos, she served as a program attorney with the Argonne National Laboratory. Her recent professional work has included serving as project manager for the Air Force Material Command (AFMC) Headquarters Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program (ECAMP); evaluating legislation and regulations associated with security vulnerabilities for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; and providing legal expertise to programs involving federal facility site remediation and hazardous waste compliance and corrective actions (RCRA). She also coauthored a working paper on the application of federal and state hazardous waste regulatory programs to waste chemical agents, in addition to being a coauthor of the Environmental Impact Statement for the Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program. Ms. Haffenden received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Illinois and a J.D. from Suffolk Law School, Boston, Massachusetts. William R. Rhyne is a retired risk and safety analysis consultant to the nuclear, chemical, and transportation industries. He has over 30 years’ experience associated with nuclear and chemical processing facilities and with the transportation of hazardous materials. From 1984 to 1987, he was the project manager and principal investigator for a probabilistic analysis of transporting obsolete chemical munitions. From 1997 to 2002, he was a member of the NRC Committee for the Review and Evaluation of Alternative Technologies for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical Weapons I and II. Dr. Rhyne has authored or coauthored numerous publications in the nuclear and chemical safety and risk analysis areas and is the author of the book Hazardous Materials Transportation Risk Analysis: Quantitative Approaches for Truck and Train. He is a current member of the NRC Transportation Research Board Hazardous Materials Committee and a former member of the Society for Risk Analysis, the American Nuclear Society, and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He received a B.S. in nuclear engineering from the University of Tennessee and M.S. and D.Sc. degrees in nuclear engineering from the University of Virginia. Leonard M. Siegel is director of the Mountain View, California-based Center for Public Environmental Oversight (CPEO), a project of the Pacific Studies Center that facilitates public participation in the oversight of military environmental programs, federal facilities cleanup, and brownfield revitalization. He is one of the environmental movement’s leading experts on military facility contamination, community oversight of cleanup, and the vapor intrusion pathway. For his organization he runs three Internet newsgroups: the military environmental forum, the brownfields Internet forum, and the installation reuse forum. Mr. Siegel also serves on numerous advisory committees and is currently co-chair of California’s Brownfields Revitalization Advisory Group.
