  • The Progression of Remediation

    Environmental remediation involves the cleanup of contaminated ground water and/or soils impacted by a variety of contaminates. The predominate contaminates over the years have been petroleum hydrocarbons from leaking underground storage tanks and surface spills, as well as solvents and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from industrial processes. Today, the most effective, practical, and ...

  • Combined Remedies Treat Large Industrial Site - Case Study

    ABSTRACT BOS 100 was successfully implemented as part of a combined remedies strategy to treat elevated levels of Trichloroethylene in a shallow fine grained aquifer at a former large industrial facility. CHALLENGES A large industrial facility used vapor degreasing in the 1970s and 1980s that resulted in chlorinated volatile organic compound (CVOC) ...

  • Groundwater Remediation

    Groundwater remediation or clean-up is required when concentrations of contaminants exceed or are expected to exceed predetermined levels for the type of resource that is impacted (Grossman et.al., 2008). For example, lead levels in drinking water should not exceed the EPA action level of 0.015 mg/L. What caused the high levels of lead? How can the lead be removed from the aquifer? (Grossman ...

  • Remediation of mercury contaminated industrial site for future expansion - case study

    70,000 tons of mercury contaminated soil and building rubble have to be cleaned in an industrial facility in the south of France until 2013. For the realization of this remediation work, an econ industries VacuDry® 12,000 has been in operation since early 2011. After the treatment the mercury free soils can be re-used on-site as building material. A similar but smaller econ industries ...

  • Lead contamination in soil and groundwater in and around a lead processing industry: a case study

    Environmental pollution is of major concern across the world, which is affected by a variety of contaminants. Lead is one of the major heavy metals used in industrial activity. Unscientific handling and disposal of lead bearing residues or lead waste has led to contamination of the surrounding soil and water environment. A detailed investigation of soil and groundwater was carried out in and ...

  • Important Facts About Saltwater Remediation

    Soil that has suffered erosion due to salt, generally becomes useless to any kind of vegetation. This soil becomes crusty and if a lot of acreage is involved, it can cause upsets in ecosystems as well. While researchers have found some ways to treat these areas, the time those processes took were long and tedious. Thanks to today's technology for ...

  • Chlorinated solvent soil vapor extraction (SVE) remediation case study 2005

    Project Description An active industrial facility in South Central Los Angeles was impacted by tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE; former staging area degreasing) operations as a part of its operations. A phased approach to soil vapor extraction (SVE) remediation was employed: the goal of Phase I was to attain high contaminant mass removal rates with very high VOC vapor ...

  • Chloroflourocarbon (CFC) remediation case study

    Project Description The Site location was an industrial facility located in the greater South Los Angeles region that manufactured chemicals for local petrochemical and other industrial operations from 1919 through late 1990’s. Refrigerants were initially produced in 1964 including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) such as trichlorofluoromethane (R-11), ...

  • Remediation of DNT drum disposal area.

    In 1991, an abandoned drum disposal area was discovered in a small ravine known as the Wash 3 tributary at the Apache Powder Superfund Site near Benson, Arizona. The 110-gallon steel drums were found to have been used to store 2,4- and 2,6-dinitrotoluene (DNT) that was purchased for experimental formulation of a composite explosive for the mining industry in the 1955 to early 1960's timeframe. ...

  • Wireless Real-Time Soil Data from Stevens Hydra Probe Soil Sensors Used In Contaminated Soil Cleanup Operation

    Up until the early 1970s when The US Congress passed The Clean Water Act, industrial chemicals and petroleum products were routinely dumped onto the ground or poured down wells. In those days, few people understood groundwater hydrology, and disposing of chemical waste underground seemed like a safe and easy solution. Depending on the chemistry, underground pollution can linger for centuries, ...
