  • Jet Grouting in contaminated soils

    Abstract The jet grouting technique has gained wider acceptance in the U.S. over the past few years as a viable tool for such geotechnical applications as the improvement of foundation soils, slope stabilization, and underpinning (Welsh and Burke, 1991). Jet grouting; however, has recently been used as a method of performing block stabilization of contaminated soils as well as for the ...

  • Compressibility of Contaminated Fine-Grained Soils

    An experimental study was performed to investigate factors that control the compression index of contaminated soils and to evaluate the applicability of the correlations proposed by Skempton (1944) and Arulanandan et al. (1983) for contaminated soils. The literature search indicated that the compressibility of a soil depends on mechanical as well as physicochemical factors. The addition of ...

  • In Situ Treatment Technologies for Contaminated Soil

    Compared to excavation and ex situ treatment, the use of these technologies offers several benefits, such as addressing deep contamination and generally costing less. The summary for each in situ technology includes a basic description of the technology, its implementation, applicability based on contaminants and site characteristics, general limitations, costs, and status of the ...

  • Decontamination of soil contaminated with petroleum grease

    Contamination modifies the engineering properties of soil, thereby restricting its further use either as a construction material or as a supporting medium. Due to the scarcity of land, it becomes imperative to reuse the land for infrastructure developmental activities. Out of numerous soil contaminants, automobile grease is one of the most prominent. Considering the cumulative impact of ...

  • Detoxification of chromium slag and contaminated soil

    Chromium slag and contaminated soil are significant risks to human health. Their detoxification is a difficult problem. In this study, we tried to detoxify the chromium slag and contaminated soil by a solid reduction method. The final product is ceramist. The mechanism and process of detoxification of chromium slag and contaminated soil were studied. The residues of Cr (VI) are lower than 0.004 ...

  • Asbestos contaminated soil case study

    An active gypsum manufacturing facility discovered they had a large area of gypsum waste containing asbestos mixed with soil at the back of their property. The waste had accumulated over the years before the dangers of asbestos were known and now required remediation due to communication wires buried in the waste. Excavators could not be used due to the presence of the communication wires that ...

  • An investigation and remediation of TNT contaminated soils.

    An investigation and remediation of TNT contaminated soils and wastes was conducted at the Apache Powder Superfund Site in Cochise County, Arizona during 1999 and 2000. TNT contamination was most likely the result of salvage operations of World War I munitions. Characterized by a steep hillside and arroyo cutting through the wastes, the site offered challenges of stability, access, health and ...

  • 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 ...

  • Remediation Of MTBE Contaminated Soil And Groundwater

    Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) is a fuel additive made, in part, from natural gas. Since 1979, it has been used in the United States as an octane enhancing replacement for lead, primarily in midand high-grade gasoline at concentrations as high as 8 percent (by volume). Since the mid-1980s, it has been widely used throughout the country for this purpose. It is also used as a fuel oxygenate at ...
