  • Landfill remediation with refrigerants and chlorinated solvents

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits ...

  • Chlorinated solvents: methylene chloride and TCE

    Introduction This paper presents the results of a scaled and phased approach to source remediation of high concentrations of recalcitrant chlorinated solvent compounds via soil vapor extraction (SVE) and vapor treatment at a Site in Southern California. Phase I began with refrigerated condensation (C3) in order to achieve high mass removal rates to reduce lifecycle costs and time ...

  • 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 ...

  • How to: Bioremediate chlorinated solvents without accumulating metabolites

    Chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs)such as tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene(TCE), commonly used as dry cleaningsolvents and degreasers, pose an ongoing threatto human health and wildlife when spilled intogroundwater. Through the injection of bioremediation productsinto the impacted groundwater, the chlorine atoms can be removedfrom these compounds in situ. However, ...


  • Petroleum hydrocarbon and chlorinated solvent case study

    Project Description The site is an active fueling terminal located in Van Nuys, California USA. The site has 1underground storage tanks of petroleum fuel as well as numerous above ground storage tanks for containment of various hydrocarbon and chlorinated solvent compounds. Site Geology Soils at the location consist primarily of interbedded layers of silt, ...

  • Scenarios evaluation tool for chlorinated solvent MNA

    Over the past three decades, much progress has been made in the remediation of chlorinated solvents from the subsurface. Yet these pervasive contaminants continue to present a significant challenge to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), other federal agencies, and other public and private organizations. The physical and chemical properties of chlorinated solvents make it difficult to rapidly ...


  • Bioaugmentation to Treat Chlorinated Solvents in Fractured Bedrock

    ABSTRACT: An in situ bioremediation pilot study was performed at a former industrial site in New Jersey where groundwater has been impacted by historical releases of chlorinated solvents. The target area for treatment is a fractured, intermediate bedrock zone. The remedial objective at the Site is to treat the groundwater while minimizing the impact of the remedial system on the re-development of ...

  • Passively Enhanced in Situ Biodegradation of Chlorinated Solvents.

    INTRODUCTION Harding Lawson Associates (HLA) conducted a field demonstration to evaluate in situ enhanced anaerobic biodegradation of chlorinated solvents using Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC). The technology is designed to enhance the natural biodegradation process for a more rapid and complete degradation of the organic contaminants to non-toxic compounds (e.g., ethylene). This paper presents ...

  • Direct Hydrogen Addition for the In-situ Biodegradation of Chlorinated Solvents

    As a result of their widespread use as solvents, degreasers, and dry cleaning agents, chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons (PCE, TCE, DCE, etc.) represent one of the most common and most persistent groups of contaminants found in groundwater. Characteristically, these compounds exist in the form of DNAPLs in the subsurface making efforts at remediation particularly difficult. In-situ bioremediation ...
