  • Time to Ban Clay for Oil Spill Cleanup

    The Silent Menace that Government Agencies Can No Longer Ignore Every day in the United States - and beyond - government agencies, fleet managers, auto mechanics, gas and service stations and hundreds of thousands of consumers violate US hazardous waste laws by throwing clay-based oil spill cleanup products into the trash, bound for a landfill where it will contribute to the pollution of aquifers ...


  • What Makes SpillFix The Better Absorbent Product?

    What is your go-to absorbent product? For many people working at garages or on industrial sites, when looking to clean up a liquid spill their go-to absorbent product is one of the popular brand clay based solutions. However, the truth is that clay absorbent products are usually not easy to use and pose a number of safety-related risks when used improperly. We believe that when it comes to ...

  • Adsorption of colloidal particles of Moringa oleifera seeds on clay for water treatment applications

    This work was designed to produce microparticle composite systems from Moringa oleifera seed powder and clay microparticles (CMPs) for use in water treatment applications. Adsorption and immobilization of M. oleifera cationic protein (MOCP), obtained from the seed powder, onto core anionic CMP was carried out in a batch process. The CMP was incubated with MOCP and the ...

  • Economics of super absorbent polymers and waste stabilization

    Economics of Super Absorbent Polymers & Waste Stabilization The use of super absorbent polymer (superabsorbent polymer or SAP) in waste stabilization offers many advantages over more conventional absorbents. These advantages include: • Minimal increase in waste volume or weight • Lower transport fees due to less loads • Lower total landfill disposal fees due since waste volume has not ...

  • It’s Time To Switch To A Better Absorbent Product – And Here’s How You Can Do Just That

    Despite the inefficiencies and dangers of using clay absorbents, theirpopularity remains strong, in part because of the lack of knowledge of their downsides as spill clean-up products. Sadly many companies continue to use dangerous, sub-par absorbents despite the ready availability of safer alternatives. Fortunately, there are a few easy ways consumers and employees like us can make the benefits ...

  • Effect of MGO additive on preventing leakage of Cr(VI)

    The effect of a new additive, oxide magnesium (MgO), on preventing or reducing the leakage of Cr(VI) from a fly ash (coal ash) has been investigated by batch contact and column percolation tests. The test results indirectly indicate that the MgO additive has an obvious effect on reducing Cr(VI) to Cr(III), which is less environmentally hazardous. However, the process of reducing Cr(VI) to Cr(III) ...

  • Compost' leachate recycling through land treatment and application of natural Zeolite

    Abstract Background: The entrance of untreated wastewater or disposal leachate to water resources such as surface water, groundwater or irrigation water increases the risk of contaminant accumulation. Removal or deduction of water contaminant concentration is then crucial before entering water to the natural resources or its transfusion directly to the soil as irrigation water. Four studies ...

  • Gravelpave2 vs Concrete Pavements

    Porosity As an alternative to traditional impervious pavements like concrete and asphalt, the runoff volumes generated by the Gravelpave2 surface will be greatly reduced. Indeed, as much as 35% of the compacted porous base course and porous wearing course pavement section is air (void), which will be the first area for stormwater to occupy as it falls upon the surface. Assuming a ...

  • LiquiSorb 200 saves time and money before the rubber hits the road

    Problem In tire manufacturing there is much more to the finished product than just rubber. Tire chords, a by-product of the manufacturing process, are coated with a proprietary dip solution that acts as a flexible adhesive/bond in tires. This dip solution has an extremely high concentration of solids in water, making traditional wastewater treatment techniques less effective, extremely slow, and ...

  • The no. 1 choice for improving the performance of soil and groundwater remediation

    Adsorption of Contamination The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90% to 95% of all environmental contaminants; including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL), and heavy metals; are present in a sorbed (i.e., absorbed or adsorbed) phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. As such, the absorbed ...

  • Composted Woody Materials Become Erosion Control Product

    In Beaverton, Oregon, Lakeside Reclamation, Inc. grinds incoming yard trimmings and other feedstocks which are composted and bagged for use in erosion and runoff control. The facility recycles over 25,000 tons of wood each year for multiple product use. Owned by Howard Grabhorn, the site includes a limited purpose landfill, composting area, retail products building and comparative erosion control ...

  • Mining Related Sediment Impacts: Causes, Significance and Solutions1

    The ProblemAs with many production activities related to the use of natural resources, initial legacies in the form of negative impactsare often characterized by acute pollution of surface waters. In the case of the mining industry, long after the originalmining-related activity ceases, residues such as tailings, spoil piles, sediments in settling ponds or sediments reaching natural ...


  • Hydraulic Oil Spill on Roadway

    Fuel Oil Soaked Wood. Contact was made to our office in May/2007 regarding the wood base underneath an oil/kerosene furnace system which, upon removal, it was discovered that kerosene had leaked and was somewhat permeated, leaving an odor. With over-time saturation of the wood, we recommended multiple treatments. After use of our Terracap 3000/4000 kit, we received the following in a letter: "I ...


  • Liberating contaminants for easy recovery

    The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90-95 per cent of all environmental contaminants are present in an adsorbed phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. Contaminants, including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL) and heavy metals, are sorbed onto the substrates and so have reduced mobility ...

  • An Impulse Generator for The Ground penetrating radar

    Abstract In last time ground penetrating radars (GPR) are widely used for search and analysis of varied underground objects of natural and artificial origins. Caves and cavities can also be found and investigated with the GPR's aid. Impulse generator is the key unit, which determine GPR's parameters: depth of penetrating, accuracy et al. Serial power drift diodes are used for ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Inorganics in Contaminated Soil

    Often, specific technologies may be ruled out, or the list of potential technologies may be immediately narrowed, on the basis of the presence or absence of one or more of the chemical groups. The relative amounts of each may tend to favor certain technologies. Metals may be found in the elemental form, but more often they are found as salts mixed in the soil. At the present time, treatment ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Nitty-Gritty of Dust Control

    Landfill owners and operators spend a lot of time focusing on containment: containment of waste; containment of leachate; containment of gas, litter, and odors. Quite often, containment of dust ranks near the bottom of the list. But that doesn’t lessen the importance of dust control. ...
