Is oxygen overrated when it comes to in-situ hydrocarbon remediation? Let`s take a look at a few of the facts.
Fact:� Many millions of dollars are spent annually to artificially add oxygen to the subsurface of fuel contaminated sites by either chemical or mechanical means.� Most fuel-contaminated sites are naturally anaerobic, so oxygen is often added to stimulate the indigenous bacteria to �eat� the contamination.� When the added oxygen is inevitably depleted again, the indigenous bacteria quit eating and remediation slows to a halt.� Fact:� Adding oxygen would be pretty silly if there were a way to remediate subsurface contamination without the constant addition of ...
