  • Effect of a commercial alcohol ethoxylate surfactant (C11–15E7) on biodegradation of phenanthrene in a saline water medium by Neptunomonas naphthovorans

    Biodegradation of poorly soluble polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) has been a challenge in bioremediation. In recent years, surfactant-enhanced bioremediation of PAH contaminants has attracted great attention in research. In this study, biodegradation of phenanthrene as a model PAHs solubilized in saline micellar solutions of a biodegradable commercial alcohol ethoxylate nonionic surfactant ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation of High Contaminant Concentrations in Source Residual Area (PDF)

    Although enhanced bioremediation has proven to be effective at many sites, typically it has been applied to relatively low contaminant concentrations and in relatively permeable media. The project site described herein is an application that potentially extends the practical limits of in situ bioremediation applications. An active eyewear manufacturing facility located in Western NY was found to ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation

    Introduction Enhanced bioremediation is a process in which indigenous or inoculated micro-organisms (e.g., fungi, bacteria, and other microbes) degrade (metabolize) organic contaminants found in soil and/or ground water, converting them to innocuous end products. Nutrients, oxygen, or other amendments may be used to enhance bioremediation and contaminant desorption from subsurface materials. ...

  • Bunker C Fuel Oil Spill - Case study

    HE SITUATION: No. 6 fuel oil is a dense, viscous oil produced by blending heavy residual oils with a lighter oil (often No. 2 fuel oil) to meet specifications for viscosity and pour point. When spilled on water, No. 6 fuel usually spreads into thick, dark colored slicks, which can contain large amounts of oil. The most viscous no. 6 oils will often breakup into discrete patches and ...

  • Surfactant enhanced bioremediation (SEB) of F2, F3 and F4 contaminated soils in Northern Alberta - Case Study

    Ivey International Inc. (Ivey) was retained to apply the SEB (Surfactant just prior to the on-set of colder northern weather in an area know for -20oC to Enhanced Bioremediation) technology to remediate 2000 tons of F2, F3, and -40oC winter temperatures. The actual period for effective bioremediation in F4 fine grained contaminated soil at a remote site in northern Alberta. The this climate is ...

  • Time-Release Electron Donor Technology: Results of Forty-Two Field Applications (PDF)

    Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC) is a food grade, polylactate ester that, upon being deposited into the aquifer, is slowly hydrolyzed to release lactic acid and other organic acid derivatives. The organic acids are fermented to hydrogen, which in turn donates electrons that drive reductive bioattenuation processes. HRC delivers electrons in a time-release fashion for about one year. The ...

  • Performance of DNAPL source depletion technologies 2 at 59 Chlorinated solvent-impacted sites

    Abstract Performance and rebound of intensive source depletion technologies were evaluated at 59 chlorinated solvent sites where remediation targeted dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) source zones. The four technologies included in the study are chemical oxidation, enhanced bioremediation, thermal treatment, and surfactant/cosolvent flushing. Performance was evaluated by examining ...

  • DNAPL in Clay Formation

    PROJECT BACKGROUND At a manufacturing site located in Cookeville, TN, on and offsite soil (tight clays) and groundwater contaminated with chlorinated solvents, were discovered as the result of a Phase I and a Phase II investigation. The client entered the State of Tennessee Voluntary Clean-up Oversight and Assistance Program (VCOAP), which resulted in an informal focused feasibility study to ...

  • Analysis of DNAPL source depletion costs at 36 Field Sites

    Abstract A recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency expert panel on dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) remediation concluded that uncertainty in the costs and benefits of applying source depletion technologies (i.e., active remediation in source zones) is one key factor that discourages widespread use of these technologies at DNAPL sites (Kavanaugh et al., 2003). To reduce this ...

  • Integrated 3D physical-numerical modelling for simulating bioremediation of petroleum contamination in heterogeneous subsurface environment

    This study presents physical-numerical modelling of petroleum contaminant transport and enhanced in situ bioremediation in heterogeneous subsurface environment. The approach is based on development of a three-dimensional multi-layered physical model coupled with a three-dimensional multiphase multi-component numerical model. An experimental scheme was designed to conduct 40-day benzene transport, ...

  • Test area North Chloroethene source area remediation project Case Study

    Background A contaminant source area resulted from the injection of chlorinated solvent-containing liquid waste and sanitary sewage to the Snake River Plain Aquifer from the mid-195s to 1972. The source is primarily an organic sludge containing up to 3% TCE. The sludge is present in the fractured basalt surrounding the former injection wells. A plume of TCE in ...

  • HRC Treats TNT at a DoD Site

    Site Summary West Virginia Ordnance Works (WVOW) was a trinitrotoluene (TNT) manufacturing facility from 1942-1945 and used 12 TNT production lines. The production of TNT resulted in soil and groundwater contamination adjacent to the manufacturing building. The majority of the contamination was found within the shallow aquifer which consists of tight clays. Alternative options included insitu ...
