  • CASE STUDY - Setup and calibration of a three-dimensional numerical multiphase model for design of in-situ remediation of jet fuel with surfactant

    BACKGROUND Storage and pumping of jet-fuel have caused a severe contamination of soil and groundwater at a military facility in Denmark. The contamination was detected in 2001. The Danish Defence has conducted 3 a series of investigations and set up a skimmer system, that has recovered approximately 25 m of jetfuel. In 2005, the recovery stopped, and the remaining jet-fuel is trapped as a ...

  • Surface water polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in urban areas of Nanjing, China

    The concentration, sources and environmental risks of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in surface water in urban areas of Nanjing were investigated. The range of ∑16PAHs concentration is between 4,076 and 29,455 ng/L, with a mean of 17,212 ng/L. The composition of PAHs indicated that 2- and 3-ring PAHs have the highest proportion in all PAHs, while the 5- and 6-ring PAHs were the least ...

  • The Chemical Route to a Carbon Dioxide Neutral World

    Excessive CO2 emissions in the atmosphere from anthropogenic activity can be divided into point sources and diffuse sources. The capture of CO2 from flue gases of large industrial installations and its conversion into fuels and chemicals with fast catalytic processes seems technically possible. Some emerging technologies are already being demonstrated on an industrial scale. Others are still ...

  • LNAPL At Petroleum Product Terminal - Case Study

    ABSTRACT BOS 200® was injected at a refined petroleum product terminal to remediate LNAPL in groundwater. Within one year after treatment, the site received a No Further Action status. CHALLENGES The remedial goal was to eliminate the reoccurrence of light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL) which persisted with no apparent pattern. Annual ...

  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • PAHs in Parking Lot Sealcoats - Case Study

    There is growing concern - and regulations in the works - over the use of sealcoating products due to their high PAH content.  In the United States and elsewhere, most sealcoats are made from coal tar which can be toxic to aquatic life and threaten public water supplies from rain and runoff.  Sample was collected from a freshly treated parking lot in Seabrook, New Hampshire. The ...

  • Assessment of organic micropollutants occurrence in treated wastewater using heat shock protein 47 stress responses in Chinese hamster ovary cells and GC/MS-based non-target screening

    Combining bioassays and analytical chemistry screening is a powerful approach to assess organic micropollutants which are the main contributors to toxic potential in complex mixtures of treated wastewater (TWW). The aim of this study was to perform a comprehensive toxicity assessment of treated effluents using stress response bioassays and then to assess the occurrence of the organic ...
