  • Biodegradation of MTBE Utilizing A Magnesium Peroxide Compound: A Case Study.

    ABSTRACT: A patented magnesium peroxide compound was recently employed at an underground storage tank facility to increase the available oxygen in the groundwater for the biodegradation of fuel hydrocarbons. The objective of this remedial effort was to substantially reduce the dissolved-phase concentrations of BTEX and MTBE and to arrest further migration of the dissolved fuel hydrocarbon plume. ...

  • Vacuum Sewers – Engineered Solution for a Multitude of Problems

    ABSTRACTThe City of Albuquerque is celebrating its 300th anniversary in the 2006. The city itself has been growing at a very rapid rate, expanding the urban boundaries into the rural countryside. This urban expansion has been most apparent in the river valleys of the Rio Grande, where groundwater is shallow and topography is very flat. As the urbanization of the valley areas north and south of ...

  • Indestructible Pumps for Clean Water

    Sulzer pumps are used in the production of drinking water in many cities around the world. The special qualities that these pumps possess can be seen at the Zurich Municipal Water Utility. There, the operators have to cope with rising land and energy prices and a challenging topography. A small water flea plays a major role in Zurich. It swims around in a container of drinking water with some of ...

  • EPA Study: 83% of diesel tanks have moderate to severe levels of corrosion

    The EPA has released the results of the largest survey to-date on corrosion levels in underground storage tanks (USTs) containing diesel fuel -- and the results are staggering. The research showed that 83 percent of the USTs studied exhibit moderate to severe corrosion. Worse, only 25 percent of the owners of those tanks with corrosion were aware of it prior to the study. ...

  • Water and wastewater projects in Jordan

    About 70% of Jordan has an annual rainfall of less then 100 mm. The population and water demand have increased during the last years and the groundwater resources are in danger of drying out. As the population continuous to grow it is necessary to find new resources to meet future demands of water for municipal, industrial and irrigation purposes. The two projects, As-Samra and Disi, aims to ...

  • Peroxygen Mediated Bioremediation of MTBE.

    ABSTRACT: Evidence is mounting, from laboratory and field studies, that oxygen plays a role in the bioremediation of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). Our experience with a number of commercial applications of peroxygen, in the form of Oxygen Release Compound (ORCâ), correlates the provision of enhanced aerobic conditions with enhanced MTBE biodegradation. Subsequent laboratory and field ...
