  • How much does a Horizontal Remediation Well cost?

    In the early days of horizontal remediation wells, the estimated costs made many projects completely unfeasible. However, with the advance of technology in directional drilling and innovative solutions within the environmental industry, this technology is becoming affordable and practical. Like most environmental projects, the cost of a Horizontal Remediation Well will depend on the size and ...

  • Bioaugmentation is a cost-effective and sustainable remediation alternative

    Selecting a remediation alternative that is compatible with the natural soil and ground water conditions is not only a more sustainable approach, but leads to significant savings. Comparison between bioaugmentation and other remediation methods in the five recognized sustainability criteria demonstrates the advantages of bioaugmentation. While this paper is nota complete quantitative analysis, it ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sinking Costs

    Today there is more pressure than ever for businesses to minimize costs and increase productivity. Companies are always looking for ways to reduce overall costs. Unfortunately, these efforts are often hampered when a company is faced with an environmental investigation. Regulatory agency requirements, such as determining the full horizontal and vertical extent of contamination in soil and/or ...

  • H.E.N.C.I. Technology and the Advent of High-Flowrate Cost-Effective Nanocatalytic Groundwater Remediation

    When added to polluted water (employed in-solution e.g. in-situ), many new nano-sized catalyst particles have been shown to effect extremely rapid and complete catalytic destruction (chemical breakdown to benign species) of highly toxic / carcinogenic recalcitrant trace pollutants, largely of the large and ubiquitous CHC family of concern to regulatory agencies. Since this capability hold the ...

  • Lower costs, fewer delays - a highway expansion project applies XRF technology to obtain cost-effective remediation.

    X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is a non-destructive, analytical method used primarily to detect the metal composition in soil/solids samples. Portable XRF instruments can provide rapid, accurate analysis of heavy metal levels in soil on new construction or redevelopment sites. In response to the growing need for field analysis of metals, many of these units have been adapted for use in the ...

  • BTEX remediation in groundwater

    BTEX contamination in groundwater from a leaking underground storage tank was cost-effectively treated with two applications of Petrox. This project demonstrates the rapid degradation of petroleum components when high populations of Petrox aerobic microbes are injected. The pre-treatment concentrations of Toluene and Xylene were 1,198ppb and 2,408 ppb, respectively. Ten units of Petrox aerobic ...

  • Recent papers in groundwater remediation

    Computational cost is a critical issue for large-scale water resource optimization under uncertainty, since time-intensive Monte Carlo simulations are often required to evaluate over multiple parameter realizations. This paper presents an efficient approach for replacing most Monte Carlo simulations with efficient surrogate models within a noisy genetic algorithm (GA). The surrogates are trained ...

  • Cost Savings with Bioremediation

    Introduction Prior operations at a former plating and hard anodizing facility in Santa Clara, California resulted in tetrachloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE), and cis-1,2-dichloroethene (DCE) impacts to soil and groundwater. In 1987, a groundwater monitoring program was implemented to monitor the plume. In 1998, CDM performed a natural attenuation evaluation for ...
