CASE SUMMARY

Textile Facility, Northern France

A subsurface plume of mixed chlorinated solvents developed as the result of historical operations at a textiles facility in Northern France. The plume was approximately 1,000 square meters in size. The complicated geology consisted of a gravelly silt (highly contaminated) overlying a silty sand (medium contamination) overlying coarse gravel (lower contamination). Buildings covered approximately 50 percent of the plume. A remedial technology was needed that would reduce the chlorinated volatile organic compound (CVOC) concentrations without disturbing on-site structures and adjacent residential properties. A dual-phase extraction system was considered but deemed not feasible, as it posed the risk of building subsidence. In-situ bioremediation using Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC®) was chosen as the most unobtrusive and costeffective approach for treating chlorinated solvent contamination under the prevailing
conditions.
