  • Field Project : North Central California - Case Study

    Project Location: North Central California Volume of soil: 250 yd3 Contamination type(s): Diesel fuel Average level of contamination: 370 PPM Results from confirmation testing: Non-detect for diesel and BTEX for all samples (sensitivity: parts per-million) Location: North Central California Treatment: Oxidizer w/fentons reagent Volume of soil: 250 yd3 Contamination ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation Amendments with IXPER® case study

    1. Use of an oleophilic nutrient in combination with IXPER 75C, a chemical oxyen source resulted in subsurface hydrocarbon reduction at this site. 2. The multiple slurry applications did not impact the downgradient stream from either the hydro carbon or slurry constituent residuals. 3. A rule of thumb approach provided sufficient support to the indigenous microorganisms to enhance the rate of ...

  • ORC Used to Reduce Toluene Concentrations

    Site Summary The former UST area at a site in East Brunswick, NJ became an Area of Concern due to the presence of soil and groundwater contamination. Sampling showed high levels of BTEX, primarily toluene. Initial remediation efforts included a High Vacuum Extraction and Treatment (HEAT) application. Nine 8-hour events were conducted over 2 years resulting in the removal of approximately 100 ...

  • Case study - NAPL forensics analysis at refinery site in Kansas

    An environmental consultant at Subsurface Environmental Solutions, LLC used Sitelab to fingerprint a large plume of Non Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPL) located at a former oil refinery in Kansas. The plume is commingled with gasoline, diesel, crude oil and other petroleum products. Sitelab’s portable UVF-3100D analyzer is fitted with optical filters which can measure the C6 to C10 gasoline ...

  • Results from the latest MPPE Field Trails at NAM and Total installations

    Abstract Within the framework of the Oslo Paris Convention (OSPAR) for the protection of the marine environment of the North East Atlantic, the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (DEPA) was canying out a Project Plan Setting performance standards for aromatic hydrocarbons in produced water'. As part of this plan Akzo Nobel MPP Systems was requested by DEPA to test and evaluate the MPPE ...

  • Continuous monitoring of BTEX and PAH using automatic thermal desorption-gas chromatography

    Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of over 100 different chemicals that are known to be formed typically during incomplete combustion of organic matter at high temperature. Their major sources in the atmosphere include industrial processes, vehicle exhausts, waste incinerations, and domestic heating emissions. Due to their carcinogenic/mutagenic effects, 16 PAHs are currently ...

  • In-Situ thermal treatment of MGP waste and creosote

    Abstract: Remediation of coal tar at former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites, and creosote associated with wood preservative sites is challenging due to the viscous nature of the dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) and the modest solubility and vapor pressure of the contaminants of concern (COCs). DNAPL seepage into surface water bodies, as well as groundwater plumes formed by the most ...

  • In Situ Bioremediation of Soil and Groundwater: A Case Study

    Untitled Document The subject site is located in downtown Denver, Colorado and was formerly operated as a bulk petroleum storage facility. Bulk storage of gasoline, diesel and fuel ...

  • Enhanced Aerobic Bioremediation of Petroleum UST Releases in Puerto Rico.

    Abstract: Releases of petroleum compounds from underground storage tanks (USTs) containing diesel fuel and gasoline are a serious and increasingly prevalent problem in Puerto Rico. Remediation of groundwater impacted by these releases utilizing common methodologies can be quite costly and require long periods of time to implement. Oxygen is often the limiting factor retarding optimal ...
