  • In Situ Remediation - The Rest of the Story

    Sometimes "try, try again" is the best mentality when it comes to remediation. Why try again? Because failed installations don't always tell the whole story. For example:  RPI-Group member Alpine Remediation recently was called in to a benzene contamination project at an auto service station. An oxygen releasing product had been injected previously to little effect. Upon investigation, ...

  • Total remediation—It really is that simple

    Sometimes the simplest compliments are the strongest ones. Like this one, received in relation to a recent environmental remediation project in Spanish Fork, Utah and enclosing a No Further Action letter and remediation report: "I have never seen an in-situ bioremediation product work as well as this." Sometimes, in situ remediation is as simple as the right product, the right ...

  • Characterizing DNAPL source zones for remedial performance assessment

    Chlorinated solvents have been used extensively in industry and are common groundwater contaminants. Their limited aqueous solubility often leads to the presence of dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) source zones, which may persist due to mass transfer limitations from the DNAPL to groundwater. While recent research effort has been directed to the development of effective source zone ...

  • Bacterial remediation of groundwater depends on environmental conditions

    New low cost methods using bacteria to remove toxic metals from groundwater have been investigated using both actual contaminated groundwater and artificially controlled systems. Environmental conditions, such as changing levels of acidity or alkalinity, can have a significant effect on the removal of toxins, results show. Contamination of soils and groundwater with toxic metals, such as lead and ...

  • The remediation industry waits for regulation to catch up

    The progress of brownfield development has been a chequered one. The government has made much of its desire to promote the use of such sites for new housing – setting targets and offering 150% tax relief as an incentive for developers to build on them. But a raft of conflicting legislation has led to widespread confusion over remediation, and with the latest call for more new housing, can ...
