Accelerated Petrox® Bioremediation of Naphthalene and Methylnaphthalene Isomers
Petrox bioaugmentation was implemented at a former gas station UST removal site in Miami, Florida to destroy residual petroleum compounds in ground water. The UST and contaminated soil were removed. The residual ground water contamiantion, however, persisted and Petrox bioremediation was implemented to remove the residual low concentrations of MTBE, BTEX, naphthalene and methylnaphthalene isomers. After one treatment the contamiant concentrations were reduced by 80 to 90%.
