  • Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Bilge Water

    The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as garbage may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited ...

  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • Failure of Magnesium Peroxide to Remediate Petroleum Hydrocarbon-Contaminated Sites (PDF)

    Researchers promote magnesium peroxide as a viable method to aerobically bioremediate petroleum hydrocarbons and restore groundwater quality. Suppliers claim that dissolved oxygen released in the saturated zone promotes biological growth for degrading a wide range of hydrocarbons dissolved in water and sorbed onto soil particles. Yet, staff with the CaliforniaRegional Water Quality Control Board, ...

  • Remediation of hydrocarbon contaminants from oil lagoons and refinery waste - case study

    In 2007 econ delivered an indirectly heated thermal desorption plant to a client in Kuwait. The plant is de-signed to treat various types of waste with hydrocarbon contaminant content. In particular refinery waste, oil lagoons and down hole drilling waste. The aim is to recover the waste hydrocarbons from the soil/sand and remediate the lagoons of their contaminants.  Due to the natural ...

  • Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Wastewater

    A wastewater treatment company established and operates an oil/water separation facility on a multi-acre industrial site in Northern California. Its purpose is to recycle oil products for profit while at the same time provide a wastewater treatment service for industries based in Northern California. The oily water mixes processed by the company are obtained from tanker bilges, contaminated ...

  • PetroSense Hydrocarbon Sensors and Their Applications

    The increasing concern about hydrocarbon contamination of process water andproduced water has created an increasing need for in-situ, real time, and accurate low costinstrumentation that can provide rapid detection and easily usable in the field. PetroSense sensors [1,2] represents “best in breed” technology for the detectionof total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH). PetroSense sensors ...

  • Hydrocarbon Monitoring Technologies

    The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has increased the interest in technology in oil spills, cleanups and remediation. The Gulf of Mexico oil spill is expected to present challenges to every person in the region whose livelihood or operations depend on access to clean water and air.While the obvious presence of crude oil floating on the surface appears to have diminished, the concern that the bulk ...

  • Emission of N2o from Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons contaminated soil at different water contents added with vermicompost

    Vermicompost is typically applied to improve soil quality, but can be used to remediate hydrocarbon-contaminated soils. Little information is available on how contamination and subsequent bioremediation with vermicompost affects emissions of N2O and CO2, important greenhouse gases. A sandy loam soil with different water contents (40%, 60%, 80% and 100% of water holding capacity (WHC)) was ...

  • Complex hydrocarbon pollutants in America`s Water

    Class action litigation continues to dominate the environmental news as it relates to MTBE (the cleaner previously used in gasoline), Perchlorate (primarily found in rocket fuel); and 1,4-Dioxane ( a widely used solvent) found in numerous State’s well and surface waters. Over 33-states currently have imposed their own regulations on MTBE, and the USEPA is reviewing what the Federal standard for ...

  • Remediation of silty-clay hydrocarbon contaminated site using Ivey-sol selective phase transfer technology

    Earlier this year, Ivey International Inc. secured its first remediation project in Alberta using its Ivey-sol Selective Phase Transfer Technology (SPTT). This patented technology is being used to treat extensive soil and groundwater contamination at an active service station in Red Deer, Alberta. With a residential area nearby, the environmental sensitivity is relatively high. Unfortunately, ...

  • Treatment of Groundwater Contaminated with PAHs, Gasoline Hydrocarbons, and Methyl tert-butyl Ether in a Laboratory Biomass-Retaining Bioreactor

    Abstract  In this study, we investigated the treatability of co-mingled groundwater contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), gasoline hydrocarbons, and methyl tert-butyl ether (MtBE) using an ex-situ aerobic biotreatment system. The PAHs of interest were naphthalene, methyl-naphthalene, acenaphthene, acenaphthylene, and carbazole. The gasoline hydrocarbons included benzene, ...


  • Water repellency in oil contaminated sandy and clayey soils

    Two sites from a humid tropical environment were studied with respect to soil water repellency caused by hydrocarbon contamination. Samples were analyzed for water repellency (molarity ethanol droplet method), total petroleum hydrocarbons, acute toxicity (Microtox) and field capacity. At both sites, water absorption times were ...

  • Rapid Analysis of Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) in Soil and Water by Infrared Spectroscopy

    In 1988 the US EPA estimated that there were 3 to 5 million underground chemical storage tanks (UST’s) in the United States, of which up to 1% would develop leaks every year. In response to growing concerns about the quality and future availability of safe drinking water, federal and state programs have begun to systematically replace virtually all UST’s installed before 1986 either with above ...

  • Liberating contaminants for easy recovery

    The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90-95 per cent of all environmental contaminants are present in an adsorbed phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. Contaminants, including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL) and heavy metals, are sorbed onto the substrates and so have reduced mobility ...
