Vice President, Managing Principal, and Cofounder
Marc Weinreich is the cofounder and vice president of Greenfield Environmental Trust Group, Inc. and vice president of Resources for Responsible Site Management, Inc. (Trustee of the Industri-plex Superfund Site Custodial Trust). Marc also serves as a managing principal of the Montana Environmental Trust Group LLC (Trustee of the Montana Environmental Custodial Trust), comanaging principal of Greenfield Environmental Multistate Trust LLC (Trustee of the Multistate Environmental Response Trust), and comanaging principal of Greenfield Environmental Savannah Trust LLC.
Marc has overseen water treatment plant optimization, dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) extraction programs, site-wide Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) facility investigations, institutional controls inaugurations, and multiple Superfund and brownfield reuse initiatives. He has successfully managed site demolition and recycling of former chemical facilities, generating millions in salvage dollars for cleanup, and has run the multiyear operations of a 30-employee (including 15 union members) sulfuric acid plant in Savannah, Georgia, under a $28 million annual operating budget, producing and selling 300,000 tons of high-grade sulfuric acid a year. Under Marc’s oversight, the previously bankrupt acid plant made $2 million–$4 million of net revenue a year, with the profit being put back into Greenfield’s Savannah Trust for future environmental actions.
Marc has overall project, cleanup, and disposition management responsibility for hundreds of contaminated CERCLA (Superfund), RCRA, mine-scarred, and state and other hazardous waste sites throughout the country.

Marc comanages Greenfield’s environmental and financial programs and oversees Greenfield’s treasury, insurance, legal, and property sale functions. He chaired the Anadarko Litigation Trust Advisory Board—the entity charged with prosecuting and settling for $5.14 billion in the fraudulent conveyance litigation against Anadarko. Marc has spoken at national, regional, and local conferences on the environment, published opinion-editorial articles on current environmental matters, and has garnered two national Phoenix Awards for the management and revitalization of federal Superfund sites.
