James Pastorick

James Pastorick

Short Narrative/Description:

I work as a consultant to state regulators overseeing ordnance investigations and cleanups on closing and formerly used military training sites. This industry has some unique quality issues and we are currently going through the introduction of a new technology that will greatly streamline our processes but also has important quality implications.

Speaker Background:

Jim Pastorick is an Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Technician with over eighteen years of active Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and UXO experience. He has served in various missions as an officer in U.S. armed forces EOD including Officer-in-Charge of an EOD unit deployed in the Mediterranean Sea and tasked with providing emergency EOD response to the Sixth Fleet. Since leaving the military he has continued his EOD activities as Senior UXO Project Manager for UXB International, Inc. and IT Corporation and as President of the specialty UXO consulting companies Geophex UXO, Ltd. and UXO Pro, Inc.

Mr. Pastorick is currently serving on the National Research Council Committee on Disposal of Non- Stockpile Chemical Warfare Material (CWM). This important committee is investigating ways to safely handle and dispose of UXO containing CWM in an efficient manner to allow cost-effective cleanup of non- stockpile CWM burial sites. He is also a member of the ITRC UXO Work Team where he develops and presents UXO training courses and assists in the development of technical guidance documents related to UXO technical issues of interest to state regulators.
