This report summarizes the results and activities of the demonstration of GRACE Bioremediation Technologies DARAMENDTM Bioremediation Technology for the treatment of soils contaminated with polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and chlorinated phenols, including pentachlorophenol (PCP). The primary market for the DARAMENDTM Bioremediation Technology consists of industrial wood preserving facilities that have used chlorinated phenols and creosote derived PAHs as wood preservatives. This technology is patent pending and was developed by GRACE Bioremediation Technologies in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The demonstration was conducted at the Domtar Wood Preserving Facility in Trenton, Ontario, under the USEPA’s Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program.
This demonstration was conducted for the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory (now the National Risk Management Research Laboratory) in October 1993 to September 1994, and the final report was completed as of November 1995.
