ChemTrack is an 8(a) Alaskan Woman Owned Small Business, specializing in environmental engineering, remediation services and construction. ChemTrack is located in Anchorage, AK.
ChemTrack developed from an Alaskan construction company founded by Sig Jokiel in 1973 into an environmental services and engineering company in 1985, when Chuck Ronan joined the company. In 2008, Carrie Jokiel, who had been working at ChemTrack since 2002, joined as a partner adding expertise in business administration and project management. In May of 2010, Carrie Jokiel became the majority owner of ChemTrack Alaska, Inc. In May of 2015, Chuck Ronan left the company to pursue other endeavors. ChemTrack has been certified as a Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) firm in October 2016 and in 2019, was awarded Woman Owned Small Business of the Year for the State of Alaska by the Small Business Administration.
For over four decades, ChemTrack has successfully completed projects for private business and government/military clients including: US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC), US Army Department of Public Works (DPW), United States Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS), National Park Service (NPS), General Services Administration (GSA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), BP, Exxon, Jacobs Engineering Group, CH2M, numerous Alaska Native Tribal Entities as well as local and statewide businesses.
Current achievements are successfully completing a 5-year multiple award task order contract (MATOC) for the USACE – Alaska District. From our successful completion of task orders, we have been awarded sole source work with USACE and the Air Force. Another accomplishment was when ChemTrack introduced its innovative technology such as surfactant-enhanced groundwater remediation and in situ soil and groundwater oxidation of chlorinated solvents. ChemTrack chemists and engineers worked with the ADEC and EPA to obtain approval for the use of this innovative technology in Alaska.
A major historic achievement included the Exxon Valdez cleanup, where ChemTrack developed, patented and utilized thirteen Omni-Sweeps (shoreline cleanup systems consisting of remote controlled 100 ft artificial spray arms mounted on barges using pressurized sea water for removing oil from otherwise inaccessible shorelines). ChemTrack’s work force peaked at 250 workers in the summer of 1989.
ChemTrack combines geological, chemical, hydrological, and engineering expertise with a broad understanding of regulatory and risk frameworks to solve environmental assessment and regulatory compliance problems for our clients. We tailor innovative methods and concepts to individual problems and provide environmental solutions, especially as they apply to arctic and subarctic conditions in Alaska.
