  • Chlorinated solvents

    The initial PSG survey identified TCE source areas that did not agree with the GPR survey findings. Based on these results, a subsequent PSG survey was performed to further characterize the site and better define the source areas identified in the initial survey. Analytical results were provided to the client within four (4) days of receipt of samples at the laboratory for both surveys. The ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation of Chlorinated Solvents (PDF)

    Enhanced in situ bioremediation of chlorinated solvents in groundwater has been successfully demonstrated at many sites by supplying lactic acid as an electron donor. The source of lactate for these successful pilot tests is Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC), a polylactate ester specially formulated for slow release of lactic acid upon hydration. HRC has been delivered to chlorinated ...

  • Case study - Dual-reagent ISCO “Fast-Tracks” cleanup of Orlando Brownfield

    Description: A Brownfield property impacted with chlorinated solvents was the planned location for the home of the Orlando Magic basketball team. Contaminants: Chlorinated solvent contamination was present in soil and groundwater with PCE concentrations greater than 14,000 ug/L and potential presence of DNAPL. Remedial challenge: The ...

  • Raynesway resource park - Case Study

    The Raynesway Resource Park is a 35 hectare site bounded on three sides by the River Derwent. The southern half of a former chemicals plant, soils and groundwaters were impacted by chlorinated solvents, acid tars, hydrocarbons and ammoniacal sludges. Celtic designed a sophisticated groundwater treatment system, integrating air sparging, multi-phase extraction and chemical oxidation to address ...

  • The advantages and benefits of aerobic cometabolism

    Aerobic metabolism yields the energy-transferring molecule TPA at a much higher rate than anaerobic metabolism. The higher energy yield produces a greater viable population. The oxygenase enzymes involved in the cometabolism of chlorinated solvents are not induced by the presence of contaminants, so a high microbial population has a proportionately high yield of oxygenase enzymes. Aerobic ...
