  • A Citizen`s Guide to Innovative Treatment Technologies

    What are innovative treatment technologies? Treatment technologies are chemical, biological, or physical processes applied to hazardous waste or contaminated materials to permanently change their condition. This Citizen’s Guide focuses on treatment technologies for soil, sludge, sediment, and debris. Treatment technologies destroy contaminants or change them so that they are no longer hazardous ...

  • In situ Chemical Oxidation: An Innovative Groundwater Remediation Technology

    A promising new technology, in situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO), has the potential to supplant the more widely used pump-and-treat groundwater remediation technology by destroying groundwater contamination in situ (in place). ISCO is the process of oxidizing contaminants in the groundwater and soil by injecting water containing high concentrations of an oxidant to the site of the contamination. ...

  • Minergy GFT Supplemental Sediment

    The purpose of the Study is to evaluate the economic and technical feasibility of melting PCB contaminated river sediments in a glass furnace. The Glass Furnace Technology (GFT) was developed by Minergy. Minergy originally developed vitrification technologies to process wastewater sludge into glass aggregate that could be sold as a commercial product. The technology was evaluated during a U.S. ...

  • WDNR GFT Phase 3 Fact Sheet

    Following the release of the draft Lower Fox River Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) in February 1999, WDNR received a set of comments from Minergy Corp. (Minergy). Minergy’s comments suggested that a vitrification (melting) technology might be more effective and appropriate for dealing with contaminated sediments than some of the options in the RI/FS. WDNR contacted Minergy as a ...

  • Engineered approaches to in situ bioremediation of chlorinated solvents: Fundamentals and field applications

    Halogenated volatile organic compounds, including chlorinated solvents, are the most frequently- occurring type of soil and groundwater contaminant at Superfund and other hazardous waste sites in the United States. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that, over the next several decades, site owners will spend billions of dollars to clean up these sites. New technologies that ...

  • Reductive Dechlorination Using HRC Reduces VOCs Towards MCLs

    Site Summary As part of the EPA Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) program, a pilot-scale study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of using HRC to reduce TCE concentrations in groundwater at the Fisherville Mill site in Grafton, MA. The Fisherville site is characterized by TCE contamination in a sand and gravel aquifer and is considered a brownfield site. Prior to HRC ...

  • Minergy GFT Phase 3 Final Report

    The presence of PCBs in the lower Fox River in northeastern Wisconsin has been a concern for many years. Extensiveinvestigations of the river bottom have taken place during the 1980s and 1990s. Two areas of the river have undergonedemonstration dredging in the past five years. While planning the appropriate remedial response to be undertaken, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) ...

  • Minergy GFT Permitting Feasibility Report

    A 39-mile stretch of the Fox River and portions of Green Bay in northeastern Wisconsin (the Fox River site) are contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) laden sediment. The contamination was caused by historical effluent discharges from paper mills manufacturing and/or recycling carbonless paper that utilized dyes dissolved in PCBs. PCBs are the primary contaminant of concern; however ...

  • Treatment of Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids Through Enhanced Bioremediation

    ProblemAs a result of trichloroethene (TCE) releases to groundwater during the 1960’s, TCE is now found in the sandy aquifer beneath the Site in the form of a dense, non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL). Testing for the vinyl chloride reductase (vcrA) gene (Gene-Trac-VC) and bench scale treatability testing indicated that native Dehalococcoides (Dhc) found at the Site were not uniformly capable of ...

  • New approaches studied to investigate vapor intrusion

    In 2008, EPA Region 9 received an EPA RARE grant (Regional Applied Research Effort) to evaluate three promising techniques for VI assessment of indoor air: (1) using radon as a surrogate for assessing VOC VI; (2) using modified sorbent-based methods for longer, time-integrated measurements of indoor air VOCs; and (3) using building pressure differentials to assess the potential for VI. Available ...

  • Phytoremediation - I

    Introduction Phytoremediation is a process that uses plants to remove, transfer, stabilize, and destroy contaminants in soil and sediment. The mechanisms of phytoremediation include enhanced rhizosphere biodegradation, phyto-extraction (also called phyto-accumulation), phyto-degradation, and phyto-stabilization. Enhanced Rhizosphere Biodegradation Enhanced ...
