  • 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 ...

  • MTBE Groundwater BioTreatability Study

    The following graph illustrates the analytical results of a bio-treatability study conducted on MTBE. A two-liter groundwater sample was collected from the client's service station in western Pennsylvania. We tested three different combinations of microbe and nutrient products in order to determine which products are the most effective. The results indicate that MTBE can be bioremediated by our ...

  • MTBE cleanup in Dunedin, Florida

    Field data from an MTBE cleanup in Dunedin, Florida, revealed reductions of MTBE from 1,700 ppb to 250 ppb in just two weeks. Within about 4 months, MTBE levels were reduced to 31ppb. After 7 months, the MTBE levels were 0 ppb. Over the same 7-month period Benzene levels fell from 610 ppb to 0 ppb. Toluene levels dropped from 2,400 ppb to 1.5ppb, Xylene fell from 11,000 ppb to 20 ppb, and ...

  • 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 ...

  • MTBE degradation by hydrodynamic induced cavitation

    Hydrodynamic induced cavitation generates imploding cavitation bubbles which can lead to degradation or even mineralisation of water constituents without addition of any chemicals. This technology overcomes the problems of ultrasound irradiation by the local production of a cavitation cloud close to the sonotrodes. Hydrodynamic cavitation can be stabilised downstream of the nozzle depending on ...

  • Why MTBE should be banned in all gasoline??

    Dear Sir, MTBE should be banned in petrol and gasoline by suppliers or refinery, and be substituted with Infernofuel. The US banned MTBE in the year 2000, and also banned in EU, and Canada. Many countries have policy in place to ban MTBE in petrol. Infernofuel is the cost effective ...

  • BAN MTBE IN ALL PETROL/GASOLINE NOW

    Dear Reader, Oil majors have been using toxic solvent MTBE to be mixed in petrol/gasoline before delivery to pump stations.The hazards are during transportation and storage process, and accidents the content of petrol/gasolines are spill on the roads/ground/ water resources to contaminate water sources and aquifer. This is a major water pollutions problem for many ...

  • BTEX, TPH, and MTBE Remediation at a Former Service Station

    Site Summary A former service station site was contaminated with TPH including MTBE and BTEX compounds. In California, MTBE sites are ranked in terms of threat to drinking water and this site was designated as a “Class A,” – or a site with the highest priority. Concentrations in the initial MTBE plume ranged from 17,000 ppb to 540 ppb, while initial BTEX concentrations ranged from 46,600 ppb to ...

  • Case Study: Manipulating Groundwater Redox Conditions for MTBE Remediation

    A pilot study was conducted to investigate the potential to foster anaerobic methyl tert butyl ether (MTBE) biodegradation. The pilot test site, located on Long Island, New York, is characterized as a glacial out-wash aquifer with a high groundwater velocity over 2 ft/day. The MTBE plume is typical of similar plumes that have quickly migrated in this glacial out-wash aquifer. It is ...

  • Pilot Scale Application of ORC Advanced Reduces TPH and MTBE

    Site Summary ORC Advanced releases a maximum of 17% by weight of oxygen into a saturated area. Such a high release of oxygen can effectively reduce high concentrations of contaminants, allowing for successful bioremediation of source areas. A petroleum contaminated site in Virginia had TPH and MTBE contamination at levels much higher than MCLs. The source area contained concentrations of TPH and ...
