Many fresh water sources have been degraded to toxic levels by the inclusion of industrial, agricultural, and human waste products that have been discharged into the closest body of water, accidentally or deliberately for many years.
The use of H2O2 to chemically oxidize the contaminants into mineralized products (CO2 , salts, and readily biodegradable organic fragments) offers a number of advantages over these current treatment methods.
Benefits of Soil Decontamination by Chemical Oxidation:
The reagent used (H2O2) is inexpensive, readily available, and has as its reaction products water and oxygen;
The chemistry of the process (Fenton's Reagent) has been known for over 50 years and its applicability to a wide variety of contaminants is...
Helping others clean up the earth by clearing up brownfield remediation odors. Helping others clean up the earth by clearing up brownfield remediation odors. Brownfield remediation consists of removing large amounts of soil that have been saturated with tar, oil or other contaminating substances. Not only dangerous to handle, the disturbed soil is often infused with very unpleasant and in some cases potentially nauseous odors.
Contaminated soil and building-rubble can be efficiently treated with VacuDry technology, including a diverse range of toxic and hazardous substances. VacuDry units also have low emissions and low power consumption, making on-site treatment with our mobile units both economically and environmentally sound.
The remediation division of Anguil Environmental Systems (formerly known as Global Technologies) is focused on treating emissions and water contaminants extracted from below the earths` surface. Formed shortly after the 1990 Clean Air Act targeted emissions associated with the extraction of polluted compounds from contaminated sites, Global subsurface remediation equipment has been successfully applied on contaminated sites in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Nanoremediation represents a modern method of treatment of environment polluted by chlorinated hydrocarbons, heavy metals, radionuclides and other contaminants. This technology started to be used tentatively in USA and it already takes place on various sites around the world at present.
Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously. The Tekran 1115 Multi-Port Sampler is the ideal tool for...
Carus Corporation has been an active participant in the remediation industry since the late 1990s. Our Carus Remediation Technologies (CRT) team is dedicated to the support and growth ofin situchemical oxidation (ISCO), bioremediation and other emerging technologies.
For over twenty years, BioSolve Pinkwater has been used for Surfactant Enhanced Remediation (SER) to mobilize and solubilize residual NAPL[i], facilitating its recovery and disposal. Depending on soil and plume characteristics, Pinkwater solution can reach contaminated zones through deep injection wells or be gravity fed from surface level injection galleries. After desorbing residual NAPL from soil surfaces on contact, Pinkwater then solubilizes the hydrocarbons in an aqueous emulsion, enabling extraction at...
Horizontal wells are a proven and effective remedial technology for site cleanup. For environmental applications, horizontal wells offer several advantages in comparison to traditional vertical wells.
The first horizontal wells were installed using a mid-sized directional drill rig in 1993 by Directional Technologies, Inc. The three (3) horizontal Soil Vapor Extraction wells installed at John F. Kennedy International Airport was the beginning of a new industry. Directional Technologies, Inc. founders transferred...
Gas inFusion is a mass transfer operation whereby sparingly soluble gases are dissolved in liquids in a completely bubbleless fashion. The efficiency of this manner of mass transfer allows the production of stable liquid streams containing enormous quantities of dissolved gas on scales ranging from cc/min to thousands of GPM at a fraction of the energy cost normally associated with gas dissolution.
