Alion Awarded EPA Contract Valued at up to $72 Million to Conduct Research on Human Pollutant Exposures

Alion Science and Technology, an employee-owned technology solutions

company, was awarded a five-year task-order from the Environmental

Protection Agency (EPA), worth a maximum of $72 million, to continue its

work providing research support to assess exposure to atmospheric

pollutants and other materials that have the potential to cause adverse

human health effects.

Alion supports EPA’s Office of Research and Development by assisting

with the conduct of research that characterizes human pollutant

exposures across a broad spectrum. Our subcontractor RTI International

is a key partner in this effort. Results will be applied to practical

efforts related to air quality measurement, pollution control and

homeland security.

“We support the continuing improvement in our understanding of how

people become exposed to air pollutants,” explained Chris Amos, Alion

Senior Vice President and Manager of the company’s Technology Solutions

Group. “Alion has a long history with EPA, dating back to 1973, in

conducting atmospheric sciences and environmental methods development

research, with an increased emphasis on studying human exposure.

Ultimately, the research we are conducting now may help prevent negative

health effects from pollutants.”

Under the contract, Alion will develop and support human exposure models

and support research in aerosol and human exposure studies. Pollutants

and other compounds will be sampled and analyzed in air, water, food,

dust, soil and biological media, and tracked through inhalation, dermal

exposure and ingestion.

Other subcontractors on the five-year contract include The McConnell

Group and Alpha-Gamma Technologies.

The mission of EPA is to protect human health and the environment. EPA's

purpose is to ensure that all Americans are protected from significant

risks to human health and the environment where they live, learn and

work.
