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...
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.
Analytical precision is essential, whether remediation is to abide by regulatory provisions or for development projects. With specific standards in place for each region and situation, Maxxam has developed comprehensive test packages for soil, groundwater, sediments, surface water and soil vapour to meet provincial regulations and/or Canada-wide Standards as set out by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment.
The contamination of soils as a result of prior chemical production can often be unpredictable and diverse. The majority of such pollutants will require an ex-situ treatment method. Many of our VacuDry units can be used for direct-feeding contaminated soils. To reduce the input amount for thermal treatment, the VacuDry units can also be used in combination with soil-washing plants: In this case, customers only feed the high polluted fractions and screened fines (e.g. below 10 mm), as well as the filter-cake from...
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.
HydroEater is a bioremediation product that was designed specifically to break down hydrocarbon polluted soil.
HydroEater not only breaks down the hydrocarbon polluted soil but it also activates the natural bacteria of the specific area to help with the bioremediation process. It restores the land faster to the original non-toxic state.
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.
Air-powered submersible pumps, equipment for free product recovery and groundwater remediation, air strippers, groundwater sampling. QED Environmental Systems has been a leading manufacturer of air-powered environmental pumps, control equipment and supplies for groundwater remediation, groundwater sampling, landfill leachate and methane condensate pumping since 1982. QED also manufactures high-performance, cost-effective air strippers for groundwater and process water, plus solar-powered, wireless remote data...
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.
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.
Thermal Conduction Heating (TCH) is applicable in fractured rock and other complex formations such as: Tight and fractured clays,Saprolite, Shale, Sandstone, Limestone, Dolomite, Fractured igneous and metamorphic rock, Permeable basalt, Karst limestone.
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...
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...
