About VCT


Vapor Control Technologies, LLC (VCT) was formed in 2011 to bring innovative technology to solve industry’s need to control organic vapors and address odor issues. With our extensive knowledge and experience in the field, we are able to identify the ideal mitigation system to resolve those problems, out-performing traditional approaches, and at higher efficiency and lower cost. 


Flint KinkadeFlint Kinkade, CHMM • Managing Director

Flint Kinkade is recognized throughout the northeastern US as an expert in identifying and mitigating vapor intrusion of toxic chemicals. That background provided a springboard into identifying and mitigating other organic vapors and onsite odors. For more than 20 years his environmental practice has focused on those problems at brownfield sites, industrial and commercial properties, and residences – well over 500 sites throughout the United States.

He founded VCT to specifically address organic vapors and odors, after research and development of patented, sustainable technologies for which VCT has the exclusive right to distribute and install.

Flint has worked closely and collaborated with Dr. Blayne Hartman, an internationally recognized vapor intrusion and vapor testing expert based in California. They frequently present together at national and regional technical conferences. Flint has conducted sampling and mitigation demonstrations and training to regulators in USEPA Regions 1 and 2; and in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, California, and Montana; and to many environmental consultants and developers. He has contributed to vapor intrusion and soil gas guidance documents for ASTM International, the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC), and the State of New Jersey’s Licensed Site Professional Remediation Professional Association.
