  • Maersk line - ballast tank cleaning

    Overview The following is an internal document from Maersk highlighting the use of SpillAway's NavalKleen II product for the bioremediation of No.6 heavy fuel oil that had leaked into the ballast tank of SL Atlantic. At the point that SpillAway were asked to help, the contaminated ballast water had been removed and the tank physically cleaned, however, residues left in the tank were still ...


  • Case study – benzene contamination retail gas station, Colorado

    Introduction The scope of work for this site included an expansion of an existing soil venting system to remediate impacted soil and injection of a carbon-based petroleum degrading product to remediate long-term groundwater impacts. By using a combination of remediation technologies, including LT Environmental’s (LTE) TerraCert™ program, the overall goal of a cost effective cleanup ...

  • Detection of semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in surface water, soil, and groundwater in a chemical industrial park in Eastern China

    China is suffering from serious water and soil pollution, especially in the North China Plain. This work investigated semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) in surface water, groundwater and soil within a chemical industrial park in Eastern China, for which the volatile organic compound (VOC) results have been previously reported. A total of 20 samples were collected from the field, and ...

  • Reducing coal plants effluent discharge and waste pit volumes

    The OSEI Corporation manufactures Oil Spill Eater II a first response bioremediation product that utilizes natures own process to convert hydrocarbon contaminants to CO2 by speeding up natures process to remediate hydrocarbons in a matter of days or weeks compared to waiting decades, reducing the time toxic hydrocarbons can adversely effect the environment. OSE II can quickly ...

  • Minimizing Operating Costs in VOC Abatement Equipment

    Untitled Document As governmental regulations of environmental emissions become more restrictive, the average concentration of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) has decreased as more ...

  • Helping Laurel Asphalt to Fight Foul Odors and Be Good Neighbors

    One of the unavoidable byproducts of the asphalt production process is a mixture of volatile hydrocarbons, mercaptans, hydrogen sulfide, and heat, which may cause a unique mixture of foul odors. When this happens, many asphalt producers have to contend with neighboring residents – often homes and businesses – that bring their odor complaints to both the media and local town-hall ...

  • Fighting Foam in Aeration Tanks

    Just like a poorly poured pint of beer can wreak havoc on your coffee table, excessive foam formation in aeration tanks can create operational challenges for both municipal and industrial treatment plant operators.  In municipal plants, foam formation is common during secondary treatment startup, as the young microbiology is unable to breakdown surfactants associated with soap, shampoo, ...

  • Building a resilient system

    Africa is the second largest continent in the world, with the majority of its people surviving every day with little or no access to electricity – 50% of the 1.2bn people lacking access to electricity globally are in Africa, earning less than $2/d and living in remote locations where conventional grid extension makes little economic sense. Tackling energy poverty is the key to ensuring ...

  • QuadOa and OGI: how EPA regulations are changing the way we look at gas leaks

    Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Regulation 40 CFR, Part 60, Sub-part OOOOa, commonly known as Quad Oa, and finally brought optical gas imaging (OGI) firmly into the mainstream. This presents a major shift in the way fugitive emissions are regulated, and the technology that can be used.  Detecting and acting on gas leaks is naturally a major ...

  • Past the Peak - what the peak oil theory means to the economy

    Except for scores of cars abandoned on the shoulder, the eight-lane highway was nearly empty one Friday morning last September. Gas stations along the feeder roads were closed, with trash overflowing the bins and blowing across the pavement. Shopping center parking lots were empty; entry doors were blockaded. It was the day before the much-anticipated arrival of Hurricane Rita and the entire ...

  • Biofuels: a greener answer to energy needs?

    Biofuels were heralded as a greener solution to growing energy needs, however they have recently come under fire for being environmentally unfriendly and contributing to a world food crisis. On the 15th April, the UK government brought into effect the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO). The RTFO stated that 2.5 per cent of fuel sold in the UK must consist of biofuel, due to rise to five ...


  • The In Situ Bioremediation/Groundwater Remediation Process

    In-situ groundwater bioremediation is a technology that encourages growth and reproduction of indigenous microorganisms to enhance biodegradation of organic constituents in the saturated zone. In-situ groundwater bioremediation can effectively degrade organic constituents which are dissolved in groundwater and adsorbed onto the aquifer matrix. The Adventus In Situ Bioremediation/Groundwater ...


  • Super Size My Stormwater Treatment System, Please!

    Many municipalities have vast areas of developed impervious acreage from which stormwater drains without any form of treatment. These drainage systems were designed decades ago, predating regulatory requirement for nonpoint source pollution control. Every year pollutants from these sites discharge high levels of sediment, nutrients, trash, and heavy metals into local waters, impairing usage, ...

  • Envision 2050: The Future of Transportation

    What will transportation be like in 2050? Will we all be stuck in one giant traffic jam? Flying to our appointments in personal airborne delivery systems? Teleporting ourselves and our stuff around? Or not going anywhere at all? In large part, the answers to these questions will depend on how we answer two other questions today: What would we like it to be like? And what would it ...
