  • Petrox remediation of leaking underground storage tanks (USTs)

    Petrox is widely used to remediate soil and ground water contaminated by fuels and chemicals leaking from underground storage tanks (USTs). In many cases the UST removal contractor will treat residual contamination in the excavation after the leaking UST is removed. The effects of Petrox aerobic bioremediation can be seen in the ground water down gradient of the ...

  • Legislation: The New Directive on the Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide

    Keywords: climate change, emissions trading, carbon capture, carbon transport, carbon storage, environ mental liability INTRODUCTION Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a controversial response to climate change, described variously as a 'magic bullet';1 'an uncomfortable but necessary option';2 'an expensive distraction';3 and a 'false hope'.4 The Directive on ...


  • Case study - EPH in soil with No. 6 fuel oil

    No. 6 fuel oils (heavy fuel oil, bunker C oil) is often used in industry for heat, steam or power generation. A consultant used Sitelab to investigate two different spill sites contaminated with subsurface plumes of NAPL resulting from leaking underground storage tanks (USTs). Soils were collected from borings using a drill rig and field screened for their EPH aromatic content. Split samples ...

  • Feds propose new reg to remove leaking storage tanks from service

    With spills and leaks from storage tank systems that contain petroleum products continuing to pose significant health and environmental risks, the federal Department of the Environment proposed recently a new regulation to reduce the risk of contaminating soil and groundwater. The proposed Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations would replace the ...

  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Accounting Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Foreword Meeting the global challenge to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and avoid dangerous climate impacts requires deploying a portfolio of emission reduction technologies. We must both commit to broad and deep efficiencies in the way our societies’ consume energy and to significant increases in power supplies from low carbon energy sources. At the same time, it ...
