  • Manufactured gas plant investigation

    A two-person BEACON field team installed 304 PSG Samplers over a two-day period. Samplers were installed through soils, gravel, asphalt, and concrete. To accommodate field schedules, the Samplers were exposed for eight days in the field and the two-person field team required one day for retrieval of the Samplers. Survey results clearly showed where source areas are present on the site, as well as ...

  • Activated Carbons and Manufactured Gas Plants

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss the pros and cons related to each of these factors when using one of three accepted options in conjunction with the "hog and haul" method of remediating a site. The options are the use of (1) minimal controls, (2) extensive onsite monitoring and (3) a fabric structure with limited air testing. As we are all aware, the government continues to react to ...

  • Standard Chlorine of Delaware Remediation

    By designing a 70-foot deep barrier wall, Black & Veatch was able to cut off contaminant source areas from a creek near New Castle, Delaware. The groundwater treatment system that Black & Veatch designed prevents site contamination from reaching the underlying drinking water aquifer. The Standard Chlorine of Delaware Site is a 65 acre area including an abandoned chlorobenzene ...

  • Superfund Remediation: The Key to Land Reuse Case Study

    The technology is ready and, with state and federal tax credits waiting, the economics look better than ever: New Jersey, one of the first states to be industrialized, finds itself plagued with the contaminated aftermath of pre-EPA industries: soil contamination. From superfund sites to the gas station whose underground storage tank has been oozing for the last 20 years, every ...

  • Hot Gas Decontamination

    Introduction: The process involves raising the temperature of the contaminated equipment or material to 260 °C (500 °F) for a specified period of time. The gas effluent from the material is treated in an afterburner system to destroy all volatilized contaminants. The method eliminates a waste that currently is stockpiled and requires disposal as a hazardous material. This method will permit ...

  • TCE plume remediation via ISCR-enhanced bioremediation utilizing EHC® and KB-1®

    Groundwater below an operating manufacturing facility in Portland, Oregon, was impacted by chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs), with concentrations indicative of a dense, nonaqueous-phase liquid (DNAPL) release. The downgradient plume stretched under the adjacent Willamette River, intersecting zones of legacy impacts from a former manufactured gas plant (MGP). An evaluation of ...


  • In-situ remediation of Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon contaminated soils - New Jersey, USA case study

    Executive Summary A New Jersey utility company operated a regulator station on the site of a former manufactured gas plant in central New Jersey. The gas transfer station contained a large natural gas feeder main that fed major population centers in the southern part of the state. The regulator station contained an area approximately 3,600 ft2 contaminated to a depth of 1 meter with both ...

  • Treatment of a mixed CVOC and cr contaminated site using in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) and Stimulated Biotic Mineralization

    The implementation of efficient and cost-effective remedial solutions in the clean-up of impacted properties is paramount in returning brownfields and other impacted properties to viable use in the face of the recent real estate market declines. Historical site use of the Cleveland Flats project area included: a manufactured gas plant (circa. 1850), trucking terminal, & plating operations. As ...


  • Control VOCs and Odors

    Manufactured gas plants (MGPs) have kept cities Iighted and fueled since the Industrial Revolution. Today, cleaning up these sites presents a special challenge because of the potential for release ofVOCs and odors. Fortunately, remediation professionals have several effective emission control technologies to choose from. Where are they located? The historical record of MGPs in the United States ...

  • In-Situ thermal treatment of MGP waste and creosote

    Abstract: Remediation of coal tar at former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites, and creosote associated with wood preservative sites is challenging due to the viscous nature of the dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) and the modest solubility and vapor pressure of the contaminants of concern (COCs). DNAPL seepage into surface water bodies, as well as groundwater plumes formed by the most ...
