  • Sustainable remediation

    The term remediation refers to procedures implemented to eliminate contaminants and toxic waste from polluted landfills, water bodies and other places to promote environmental health and safety. Since its inception in the 1970s, remediation itself has evolved into a full-fledged industry. Organizations engaged in environmental construction activities typically execute remediation projects. In ...

  • The Progression of Remediation

    Environmental remediation involves the cleanup of contaminated ground water and/or soils impacted by a variety of contaminates. The predominate contaminates over the years have been petroleum hydrocarbons from leaking underground storage tanks and surface spills, as well as solvents and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from industrial processes. Today, the most effective, practical, and ...

  • Presumptive Remedies

    A presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site. EPA is establishing presumptive remedies to accelerate site-specific analysis of remedies by focusing the feasibility study efforts.

  • In Situ electromagnetic heating for hydrocarbon recovery and environmental remediation

    Introduction Thermal recovery methods, as applied in heavy oil and oil sand deposits, and in environmental remediation, have the common objective of accelerating the hydrocarbon recovery process. Raising the temperature of the host formation reduces the oil and bitumen viscosity, and, in environmental remediation, increases vapour pressure. These effects assist in sweeping the substances ...

  • Horizontal Directional Drilling - A Green and Sustainable Remediation Remedy

    Interest in using sustainable practices and technologies for environmental cleanup has increased notably within the past few years. The US EPA and many states have published recommended practices to reduce the environmental footprint of cleanup operations, and many consultants and contractors are attempting to “go green” in contaminated site remediation. It makes sense to conserve ...

  • Potential of zerovalent iron nanoparticles for remediation of environmental organic contaminants in water: a review

    Zerovalent iron (ZVI) has the potential to degrade different organic contaminants. Nanoscale zerovalent iron (NZVI) can reduce the contaminants even more rapidly due to its small size and large specific surface area (SSA), compared to granular ZVI. The main objective of this paper is to assess and compare the potential of NZVI for degradation of different contaminants in water under specific ...

  • State-wide collection of site remediation data in support of environmental quality objectives

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS) hold great potential as a tool for managing environmental site remediation data. While noting the location of contaminated sites in GIS is commonplace, GIS has played only a minor role in review and analysis of chemical data gathered during an investigation or monitoring activity. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Site Remediation Branch ...
