  • The Bioremediation Process

    Bioremediation allows natural processes to clean up harmful chemicals in the environment. Microscopic 'bugs' or microbes that live in soil and groundwater like to eat certain harmful chemicals, such as those found in gasoline and oil spills. When microbes completely digest these chemicals, they change them into water and harmless gases such as carbon dioxide. In order for microbes to clean up ...


  • Bioremediation in Denmark - a case study

    Back in the 1990s the closure of several fuel stations in Denmark led to extensive land contamination as underground storage tanks gradually began leaking. After six years of attempted clean-up by the companies concerned the regulatory bodies concluded the situation had not been sufficiently addressed.

  • In situ bioremediation of pentachlorophenol by dissloved oxygen injection

    ABSTRACT: In September of 1982 a faulty valve on a railroad tank car resulted in the accidental release of a wood treating solution containing pentachlorophenol. Subsequent investigations indicated that the wood treatment dip tank had also been a source of soil and ground water contamination. A ground water and product extraction system was installed soon after the rail car release, but after 13 ...

  • Bioremediation Of Highway Spills On Sites With Shallow Underground Utility Lines

    Highway spills involving saddle tanks of trucks are fairly common and in such cases almost 104 gallons of diesel are released in the environment. Although excavation is a preferred method, bioremediation using AgroRemed is considered another option in many situations like this one in West Virginia where the underlying cables were likely to be damaged. At the end of bioremediation, the values of ...

  • Offshore oil spill clean up case study

    In the event of a major incident occurring offshore, for example a tanker casualty running aground or breaking up for any reason, it is of paramount importance to deploy emergency response to protect and save human life. Once this has been done an assessment of the casualty should be made on whether it is possible to salvage the vessel and its contents and to assess the type and amount of oil ...

  • Inland oil spill clean up case study

    Introduction The essential strategy for inland spill clean up techniques should be containment, recovery and temporary storage. Secondary needs will include transportation and possible disposal - or recycling. It is important to discover the source of the spill which might not be straight forward. A steady slow seepage from a leaking disused oil storage tank may be very difficult ...

    A few years ago the North Sea managed a twelve month period without any major shipping disasters. Good news for the environment you’d have thought. However, in the same period up to one hundred thousand tonnes of oil were estimated to have been released into the sea. Some of this can be put down to natural occurrence, but by far the major part is dispersed from aircraft and shipping fleets ...

  • Vinyl Chloride Attenuation By Direct Injection of Time-Release Magnesium Peroxide.

    ABSTRACT: This case study shows that there is potential to remediate dissolved vinyl chloride by oxygenation in the field. Residual vinyl chloride concentrations have been remediated in the field at a mid-western site with a phosphate-intercalated peroxygen (ORC®, a proprietary formulation of magnesium peroxide that releases oxygen slowly). The site was formerly operated as an aluminum coating ...
