MTS - Metals Treatment Substrate
MTS™ - Metals Treatment Substrate is a slow release product that has been designed to remove a range of dissolved metals from groundwater via in situ immobilization and also provide a substrate for biodegradation of chlorinated compounds. It contains sulfate and sulfide. This complex is immobile in the subsurface because it sorbs strongly to the soil. MTS™ can also be used as a direct reductant for metals such as uranium and chromium that precipitate as hydroxides and oxides.
Key Benefits of MTSTM
Low cost - The passive nature of the MTSTM Technology eliminates the large capital and operations/maintenance costs associated with active engineered systems such as pump and treat, air sparging with vapor extraction and continuous recirculation systems.
Non-toxic food grade materials - MTSTM is made with food grade materials that have Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status. It can be injected directly into the aquifer through push-points or wells.
Optimizes dechlorination activity - By maintaining a constant source of electron donors within the contaminated aquifer, MTSTM can optimize dechlorination activity in aquifers contaminated with both metals and chlorinated solvents.
