  • Soil Remediation

    Contaminated sites by hazardous substances are a major environmental concern in Europe e throughout the world. Significant financial and human resources are devoted for the remediation of such sites. Many steps have been taken to restrict or ban from use some contaminants (PCBs, IPA, CLB-derivatives) and reduce discharge of others. However, contaminants can persist for many years in soil and ...


  • Soil and groundwater remediation

    At a site in northern Indiana on behalf of a multinational client, Troy Risk operated a groundwater remediation system to cleanup the source of chlorinated solvent impact to a groundwater aquifer system. Prior to 1988, the site was occupied by a manufacturing facility. In March 1995, chlorinated volatile compounds (CVOCs) were detected pursuant to due diligence for real estate refinancing. From ...

  • An investigation and remediation of TNT contaminated soils.

    An investigation and remediation of TNT contaminated soils and wastes was conducted at the Apache Powder Superfund Site in Cochise County, Arizona during 1999 and 2000. TNT contamination was most likely the result of salvage operations of World War I munitions. Characterized by a steep hillside and arroyo cutting through the wastes, the site offered challenges of stability, access, health 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 ...

  • The no. 1 choice for improving the performance of soil and groundwater remediation

    Adsorption of Contamination The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90% to 95% of all environmental contaminants; including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL), and heavy metals; are present in a sorbed (i.e., absorbed or adsorbed) phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. As such, the absorbed ...

The applications in this issue demonstrate increased sustainability that can be gained through use of renewable energy sources to power treatment systems or through ...

  • Electrokinetic remediation study for cadmium contaminated soil

    Cadmium is a non-essential heavy metal pollutant of the environment resulting from various agricultural, mining and industrial activities and also from the exhaust gases of automobiles (Foy et al., 1978). Due to its high toxicity and greater solubility in water and its wide distributions in aquatic ecosystem, it has been considered as extremely significant pollutant (Lockwood, 1976). Great ...

  • Bioaugmentation by horizontal injection to remediate petroleum in tight soils

    In situ remediation is a contact sport, requiring contact between the microbes and contamination. Clay-rich soils are particularly challenging as the low permeability limits effective distribution of inoculants. While numerous closely-spaced injection points can improve the distribution of inoculants, this approach is usually not possible at active properties. Horizontal drilling was used on the ...

  • Surfactant–enhanced remediation of soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons

    An experimental programme was undertaken to reclaim the soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons. Two types of locally available soils, clay with low compressibility and poorly graded sand, were chosen for the study. Both the soils were contaminated with varying percentages of used engine oil and gasoline. Anionic surfactant Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate (SDS) was used to reclaim the contaminated ...
