In-situ bioremediation technology tested in Northern Italy


In-situ groundwater treatment is experiencing rapid growth at contaminated sites, so consultants, environmental engineers, hydrogeologists, and regulators must not only stay abreast of emerging remedies, they must strive to objectively select the most natural and cost-effective solutions available. The Italian natural philosopher and mathematician, Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) wrote that “All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.” Oftentimes, in the science of environmental remediation it can be difficult to navigate the best path forward in a noisy environment of competing technological claims. For this reason, the environmental engineering firm TRS Servizi Ambiente of Turin, Italy, carried out laboratory and field tests to determine the effectiveness of In Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) and In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR) bioremediation technologies for severely polluted groundwater at an operating petrochemical facility in Northern Italy, before implementing a full-scale, remediation course of action. Adventus Europe and TRS collaborated on the design of these tests.
