  • Treatment of salt affected soil in the oil field

    Soils, drill cuttings and other solid wastes which are exposed to high levels of salt through spillage from drilling and producing operations, pipe line breaks or leaks, become saturated with sodium. Although the EPA and the industry have demonstrated that the vast majority of such wastes are non-hazardous, in actuality, they have an adverse impact on the fertility of the soil. The degree of salt ...

  • Advanced Water Treatment Solutions for the Food/Beverage Industry

    The agricultural/irrigation industry is one of the most demanding users of water for process applications. The availability of a sustainable supply of clean water is a necessity. Water shortages, reduction of water quality, and environmental issues, have led to an increased awareness of the use of both treated waste water as well as the ...

  • A soil column study to evaluate treatment of trace elements from saline industrial wastewater

    Industrial wastewater from the flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process is characterized by the presence of trace elements of concern, such as selenium (Se) and boron (B) and relatively high salinity. To simulate treatment that FGD wastewater undergoes during transport through soils in subsurface treatment systems, a column study (140-d duration) was conducted with native Kansas soil and saline ...

  • Enhanced nitrification in industrial wastewater after augmentation by soil nitrifying enrichments

    Nitrification (the oxidation of ammonia to nitrate) is a key process in the removal of nitrogen from wastewater, a crucial step in wastewater purification before reuse or discharge to the environment. In this research, we examined a new strategy for ensuring significant nitrification in toxic industrial wastewater by using stress-tolerant nitrifying enrichment cultures harvested from desert ...

  • Land Treatment

    Introduction Land Treatment is a full-scale bioremediation technology in which contaminated soils, sediments, or sludges are turned over (i.e., tilled) and allowed to interact with the soil and climate at the site. The waste, soil, climate, and biological activity interact dynamically as a system to degrade, transform, and immobilize waste constitutes. Wastes are periodically tilled to aerate the ...

  • Soil Filters

    Soil filters (in german: Retentionsbodenfilter) are facilities for the removal of nutrients and/or pollutants; typically on the level of an industrial site, a quarter or a drainage system (sub-)catchment. Usually they are located at the discharge points to surface waterbodies to ensure water quality standards. Soil filters consist of two parts: The first part is a retention pond or basin for ...

  • Centralised treatment of oil sludge and other industrial waste

    Centralised treatment of various sources of industrial waste has been established in many European countries over the last decade. Many facilities are still equipped with non state of the art technology and therefore cannot fulfil the broad field of applications with regard to industrial waste remediation. econ's international client decided to be one step ahead and erected a new econ industries ...

  • Biological Treatment Technologies

    Decontamination companies and researchers in France are working to restore polluted soil using treatments that range from biological methods to soil washing and incineration. The problem of polluted soil was dramatically illustrated prior to construction of the Stade de France soccer stadium built for the 1998 World Cup. The location of the site, on industrial wasteland just north of Paris, ...

  • In-Pile thermal desorption for treatment of Dioxin-Contaminated soil in Japan

    Abstract A demonstration of thermal treatment of dioxin-contaminated soil was completed in Japan, under the sponsorship of the Japan Ministry of the Environment. TerraTherm’s proprietary In-Pile Thermal Desorption process was demonstrated to successfully treat the soil to the required standard of 1,000 picograms of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin (TCDD) toxic equivalents (TEQ) per ...

  • Metal‐based nanoparticles in soil: Fate, behavior, and effects on soil invertebrates

    Metal‐based nanoparticles (NPs) (e.g., silver, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxide) are being widely used in the nanotechnology industry. Because of the release of particles from NP‐containing products, it is likely that NPs will enter the soil compartment, especially through land application of sewage sludge derived from wastewater treatment. This review presents an overview of the ...

  • A Pilot Scale EZVI and ZVI Treatment of Unsaturated and Saturated Soil for TCE Reduction

    ABSTRACT: Enhanced biological reductive dechlorination, micro-scale zero valent iron (ZVI), and emulsified zero valent iron (EZVI) injections were implemented to treat chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs) at a former manufacturing facility in western South Carolina.  These remedial approaches – until recently typically implemented as standalone technologies –were ...

  • Residual effect of agro–industrial wastes on soil properties and Zea mays (L.) nutrition

    The residual effect of agro–industrial wastes previously used for potato growing was investigated for soil characteristics and maize nutrition. The soil pH increased and organic matter decreased during maize growth. Nitrogen and K were generally low, but statistically higher almost in waste–applied soils. Soil phosphorus was greatest in the 'Only Wastes' and 'Min.P + Wastes NK' treatments. N, P, ...

    Project Description The project site is an Industrial facility located in the foothills of northern Los Angeles, California. The facility utilized chlorinated solvents in operations. Site Geology Based on soil borings site geology consisted of unconsolidated gravely sands, sand, silty sand, sandy silt, and silt from ground surface to more than 200 feet below ...

  • Case study - Rapid removal of chloroethenes at industrial sites

    Description Air sparging with trenches had failed to remove groundwater and soil contamination at an industrial Superfund site in Piedmont soils in South Carolina.  The major contaminants of concern were cis 1,2-dichloroethene (DCE) and trichloroethene (TCE) ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 mg/L.  The treatment area was approximately 15,000 square feet. Ozone sparging was ...
