  • Remediate former service station - Case Study

    ERC was hired as the General Contractor for this project to remediate the former service station.  Gasoline underground storage tanks (USTs) were previously removed however historical releases had contaminated both soil and groundwater at the site.  The remedial activities for this project included excavation and off-site disposal of petroleum contaminated soils, as well as the addition ...

  • Air sparge system - Case Study

    ERC was contracted to install an air sparge system in Central Ohio. Air sparging is an in situ remedial technology that reduces concentrations of volatile constituents in petroleum hydrocarbons adsorbed to soils and dissolved in groundwater. This involves the injection of contaminant-free air into the subsurface saturated zone, enabling a phase transfer of hydrocarbons from a dissolved state to a ...

  • Creek Channel & Floodplain Restoration Project - Case Study

    The ERC & Burgess & Niple team was selected as the design-build team to complete the design, permitting and construction work along Turtle Creek. The scope of work included the removal of a failing sheet pile wall, clearing and grubbing, excavation/embankment, re-alignment of the stream, installation of instream structures and rip-rap slope protection.  During the removal of the ...

  • Learning More About Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant Technology

    On the planet of oil production, during exploration, drilling, and refining, oil sludge is frequently found. Oil sludge is composed of a variety of water, sludge, oil and other contaminants which can be damaging to the environment. If oil sludge will not be processed properly, it can cause more pollution in an environment that may be already struggling with mounting pollution problems. The good ...

  • The METS Process in Brief/2019

    The METS remediation process equipment is about the size of a large SUV. It is fully mobile and self-propelled. Previously excavated soil is deposited in the hopper at the top of the apparatus by a conventional front-end loader. Very large debris, such as rock, concrete or asphalt, is usually screened off at the hopper opening. From the hopper, the soil is transferred in a regulated flow to a ...

  • Full-scale application of nZVI: remediation of deep contamination plume close to source of drinking water

    Treatment of an old disposal site proved to be a challenging task due to its improper placement and insufficient ensuring. The site is located in a very complex geological environment and in imminence of the source of drinking water. Therefore, the soluble in-situ reagents cannot be applied here. NANOFER slurry was chosen by the remediation company AQUATEST for removal of chlorinated hydrocarbons ...

  • NanoRem Pilot Site - Spolchemie I, Czech Republic: Nanoscale zero-valent iron remediation of chlorinated hydrocarbons

    The main aim of the study was to verify migration characteristics and remedial efficiency of two types of nZVI, NANOFER 25S and NANOFER STAR, using advanced procedures for monitoring NPs and vertical stratification of contamination. NANOFER 25S is an aqueous dispersion of nZVI particles with a surface modification based on the combination of a biodegradable organic and inorganic stabiliser and ...

  • Learning More About Oil Sludge Pyrolysis Plant Technology

    On earth of oil production, during exploration, drilling, and refining, oil sludge is normally found. Oil sludge is comprised of a mixture of water, sludge, oil and also other contaminants that can be damaging to the environment. If oil sludge is not really processed properly, there may be more pollution inside an environment that is already experiencing mounting pollution problems. Fortunately ...

  • Establishing wear particle limits using the theory of Dynamic Equilibrium Condition (DEC) to predict when abnormal wear modes are taking place in machinery

    The basis of modern oil analysis programs is the use of optical emission spectroscopy (OES) to measure the ppm (parts per million) levels of wear metals, contaminants, and additives in oil samples. Whatever an oil lab may need to measure, multi-elemental analysis is the core of an in-service oil analysis program. This paper gives an overview of Rotating Disc Electrode Optical Emission ...

  • Guide to Measuring Water in Oil

    We have all heard the saying, “Oil and water don’t mix.” Unfortunately that doesn’t necessarily apply to lubrication oils. Water can exist in several states in lubrication oils and can do quite a bit of damage to valuable assets if left unchecked. In this guide we explore the challenges posed by water in lubrication oils and discuss the methods ...
