  • Barium Sulfate: A Protocol for Determining Higher Site-Specific Barium Cleanup Levels

    Abstract Although different barium compounds are known to exhibit vastly different toxicities, cleanup standards for barium in soil or sediment at environmental corrective action sites are typically based on total barium concentration without regard for the specific barium compounds present. However, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has recently agreed that the insoluble ...


  • Mold Remediation Guidance For Indoor Environment

    Remediation contractors are generally very conscientious, trying hard to bring each project to a condition where it will pass “clearance  testing” (the  Post-Remediation  Verification  [PRV] inspection) on the first try. Sometimes the cleaning attempts are unsuccessful. This will certainly cost the contractor additional cleaning ...

  • Why a Mold Inspection before Remediation is Always a Good Idea

    There are several important reasons why Indoor Environmental Technologies, Inc. (IET), and published industry standards, recommend that a mold inspection be performed by a separate company prior to starting mold remediation. In fact, many of the better remediation contractors in Florida will not start a remediation ...

  • Process to Estimate Sanitary Sewer Pipe Remaining Life Provides MWWSSB Remedial Decision Information

    ABSTRACTA condition assessment study for the Water Works and Sanitary Sewer Board of the City of Montgomery’s (MWWSSB’s) West Catoma Interceptor (WCI) was conducted in 1998 and 2003. The WCI was evaluated in 1998 using core sampling, closed-circuit television, and manhole (MH) inspections. Approximately 193 MHs and 65,000 linear feet (LF) of pipe were inspected. A subsequent study conducted in ...

  • Historical and Retrospective Survey of Monitored Natural Attenuation Line of Inquiry Supporting Monitored Natural Attenuation and Enhanced Passive Remediation of Chlorinated Solvents

    Overview The Department of Energy (DOE) is sponsoring an initiative to facilitate efficient, effective and responsible use of Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) and Enhanced Passive Remediation (EPR) for chlorinated solvents. This Office of Environmental Management (EM) “Alternative Project,” focuses on providing scientific and policy support for MNA/EPR. A broadly representative working group ...


  • National surveillance capacity of water-related diseases in the WHO European Region

    Water-related diseases continue to cause a high burden of mortality and morbidity in the countries of the European Region. Parties to the Protocol on Water and Health are committed to the sustainable use of water resources, the provision of safe drinking water and adequate sanitation to all people of the European Region, and to the reduction of the burden of water-related diseases. A specialized ...

  • Scenarios evaluation tool for chlorinated solvent MNA

    Over the past three decades, much progress has been made in the remediation of chlorinated solvents from the subsurface. Yet these pervasive contaminants continue to present a significant challenge to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), other federal agencies, and other public and private organizations. The physical and chemical properties of chlorinated solvents make it difficult to rapidly ...


  • Sono-biodegradation: a promising alternative to existing bioremediation methodologies

    Pollution of fresh water has become a serious concern today for developing countries. There are umpteen treatment methodologies and protocols, but still there exists a demand for new technologies for wastewater treatment. Extensive research on pollutants and increased toxicological studies have paved the way for new technologies, such as ultrasound treatment of pollutants and wastewater ...

  • PCP Confidential Client, Northwest USA

    Northwest, USA Summary Adventus’ DARAMEND® technology was selected to remediate approximately 6,000 tons of soil impacted with pentachlorophenol (PCP) at a former chemical manufacturing facility located in the Northwest. Excavated soil was placed in a lined bioremediation cell in a 2 ft layer for treatment. The Challenge To reach a remedial goal of less ...


  • THAN Superfund Site (Pilot), Montgomery, Alabama, USA

    Montgomery, Alabama, USA Project Bioremediation of Pesticide Impacted Soil/Sediment Summary Soil and sediment (~4,500 tons) impacted with Toxaphene, DDT, DDD and DDE were excavated from impacted areas on the site, including a surface water drainage way.

  • Temperature effects on bioremediation of PAHs and PCP contaminated South Louisiana soils: a laboratory mesocosm study

    Goal, Scope and Background. Temperature and soil moisture content are important environmental variables in bioremediation technologies.Optimizing these variables in-situ would enhance andmaintain remediation of hazardous wastes during cold winter seasons or in cold regions and may lead to reduced maintenance and/or cost. The effect of elevated temperature and soil moisture on bioremediation ...


  • Removal of boron from aqueous solution using cryptocrystalline magnesite

    The present study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of using cryptocrystalline magnesite to remove boron ions from aqueous systems.
