  • 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 ...


  • Cost Effective Multi-Purpose Horizontal Wells

    A question commonly posed to Directional Technologies from our environmental consulting clients: “Can one horizontal well be designed for more than one remedial application?” The answer is “yes.” Horizontal wells are utilized for many diverse remedial methods: air/oxygen/ozone sparge, soil vapor extraction (SVE), multiphase extraction (MPE), in-situ chemical oxidation ...

  • 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 ...

  • In situ Chemical Oxidation: An Innovative Groundwater Remediation Technology

    A promising new technology, in situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO), has the potential to supplant the more widely used pump-and-treat groundwater remediation technology by destroying groundwater contamination in situ (in place). ISCO is the process of oxidizing contaminants in the groundwater and soil by injecting water containing high concentrations of an oxidant to the site of the contamination. ...

  • In-Situ Remediation of Heavy Metals Using Sulfur-Based Treatment Technologies

    The Metal Problem Highly toxic and highly soluble metals are contained in numerous waste streams including those from power, chemical, electronics facilities, general manufacturing plants, and mining facilities. Lead, chromium, arsenic, zinc, cadmium, copper, and mercury are the most common metal contaminants found on remediation project sites (US EPA, October, 2000). Cyanide is a common ...

  • Surfactant enhanced in-situ remediation of DNAPL impacted soil and groundwater - Montreal refinery

    Abstract A Montreal chemical refinery reduced the dichlorobenzene and other dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) impacts on the soil and groundwater where a railway line is adjacent to an above ground storage tank farm. Ivey-sol® surfactant mixtures were injected three times during a two week pilot test, into a series of in-situ wells. The soil and groundwater matrix experienced ...

  • In situ Remediation of 1,4-Dioxane using Electrical Resistance Heating

    An increasing number of states are establishing enforceable 1,4-dioxane cleanup goals due to recent improvements in analytical detection methods and existing carcinogenic risk information for 1,4-dioxane. Historically, 1,4-dioxane was used as a stabilizer for chlorinated solvents, primarily 1,1,1-trichloroethane. In addition, 1,4-dioxane has been used in a broad range of products including but ...

  • Soil Vapor Extraction (In Situ)

    Introduction Soil vapor extraction (SVE) is an in situ unsaturated (vadose) zone soil remediation technology in which a vacuum is applied to the soil to induce the controlled flow of air and remove volatile and some semivolatile contaminants from the soil. The gas leaving the soil may be treated to recover or destroy the contaminants, depending on local and state air discharge regulations. ...

  • In Situ Solidification/Stabilization

    Introduction Solidification/stabilization (S/S) reduces the mobility of hazardous substances and contaminants in the environment through both physical and chemical means. Unlike other remedial technologies, S/S seeks to trap or immobilize contaminants within their 'host' medium (i.e., the soil, sand, and/or building materials that contain them), instead of removing them through chemical or ...

  • Enhancing in-situ chemical oxidation performance

    In this edition of Peroxygen Talk, guest authors Matt Burns and Bob Pirkle discuss the benefits of compound specific isotope analysis (CSIA) to optimize delivery and monitor performance of ISCO applications. Mr. Burns is a Senior Project Director at WSP Environment & Energy, a leading environmental, energy and sustainability consultancy with over 1,000 people in 65 global locations. He has more ...

  • F4 Spill In Situ Bioremediation Applications

    F4 Completed an in situ water bioremediation program of Bio-ReClaim in northern Alberta; a pipeline leaked crude oil over a 14 hectare area in muskeg. Alberta Environment (AEP) allowed the in situ water application of Bio-Reclaim by F4 Environmental. Keeping in mind the application was performed without any ground disturbance and extremely cost effective compared to the ...

  • CASE STUDY - Setup and calibration of a three-dimensional numerical multiphase model for design of in-situ remediation of jet fuel with surfactant

    BACKGROUND Storage and pumping of jet-fuel have caused a severe contamination of soil and groundwater at a military facility in Denmark. The contamination was detected in 2001. The Danish Defence has conducted 3 a series of investigations and set up a skimmer system, that has recovered approximately 25 m of jetfuel. In 2005, the recovery stopped, and the remaining jet-fuel is trapped as a ...

  • Direct Hydrogen Addition for the In-situ Biodegradation of Chlorinated Solvents

    AbstractAs a result of their widespread use as solvents, degreasers, and dry cleaning agents, chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons (PCE, TCE, DCE, etc.) represent one of the most common and most persistent groups of contaminants found in groundwater. Characteristically, these compounds exist in the form of DNAPLs in the subsurface making efforts ...


  • Direct Hydrogen Addition for the In-situ Biodegradation of Chlorinated Solvents

    As a result of their widespread use as solvents, degreasers, and dry cleaning agents, chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons (PCE, TCE, DCE, etc.) represent one of the most common and most persistent groups of contaminants found in groundwater. Characteristically, these compounds exist in the form of DNAPLs in the subsurface making efforts at remediation particularly difficult. In-situ bioremediation ...


  • The power of precise remediation

    Design matters in in-situ remediation. Just ask Resource Geoscience, Inc. (RGI), a Remediation Products, Inc. BOS 200 approved installer and certified Trap and Treat Consultant. They recently demonstrated that when paired with proper injection design and precise application, BOS 200 can get the job done where others fail. The site:  Contaminated clay site in Colorado ...
