  • Environmental monitoring solutions - Total solution for measuring benzene in gasoline – Case Study

    EPA rule 40 CFR Parts 59, 80, 85, 86 (Control of Hazardous Air Pollutants From Mobile Sources) is about to reduce allowable emissions of benzene and other mobile source air toxics. It originally went into effect on April 27, 2007, with a recent Final Release on October 8, 2008. On January 1, 2011, the rule limits the benzene content of reformulated gasoline (RFG) and conventional gasoline (CG) ...

  • Portland, Or - Deep, DNAPL remediation

    In 1999, the senior managers of Thermal Remediation Services, Inc (TRS) while working for a former employer, as a subcontractor to AMEC, provided Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) for VOC-impacted groundwater at a commercial site in Portland, Oregon. The remediation was conducted under the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Voluntary Cleanup Program. The remedial action objective ...

  • Using solver to determine vertical groundwater velocities by temperature variations, Purdue University, Indiana, USA

    Vertical groundwater velocities can be estimated based on directions of groundwater thermal gradients. Temperature-depth profiles were obtained from 12 monitoring wells at 3 different times of the year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) in West Lafayette, Indiana (USA) mainly on the Purdue University campus. Microsoft Excel Solver was used to match plots of groundwater temperature distribution in the ...

  • How frozen is your foundation? risk mitigation in Arctic construction

    Permafrost is a common thread among soils in northern climates.  Permafrost soils fluctuate seasonally as the active layer, a roughly 1 meter thick section at the ground surface thaws each summer, creating dynamic hydrologic and thermal conditions.  From the fall months through spring, the active layer freezes once again, creating a continuous depth of frozen soil, which in some ...

  • Analysis of DNAPL Source-Depletion Costs at 36 Field Sites

    A recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) expert panel on dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) remediation concluded that uncertainty in the costs and benefit of applying source-depletion technologies (i.e., active remediation in source zones) is one key factor that discourages widespread use of these technologies at DNAPL sites (Kavanaugh et al., 2003). To reduce this uncertainty, ...
