He has developed inspection and sampling protocols for the identification and remediation of PCBs and other regulated materials found aboard Navy ships, other government ships, and privately owned vessels intended for scrapping, reefing, or re-purposing. Marc has performed maritime inspections in the United States, Asia, and South America.

Marc has developed inspection protocols under the IMO's Green Passport program, which was recently adopted by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

He has completed three artificial reefing projects where retired Navy ships were sunk for use as coastal artificial reefs. The ships included 1) ex-USS Spiegel Grove (LSD 32), which was sunk off of Key Largo, FL in 2002, 2) ex-USS Kittiwake (ASR 13), sunk off the Cayman Islands in January 2011, and 3) ex-USS Arthur W. Radford (DD 968), reefed off of the Atlantic coast of DE, NJ, MD in August 2011.
