  • Remediation of dissolved-phase chlorinated hydrocarbons in fractured bedrock

    At a former chlorinated hydrocarbon chemical transfer facility in Buffalo, NY, an approximately one-year pilot study was implemented under the New York State Superfund program to evaluate the impact of emulsified vegetable oil, in particular, EOS, on a concentration of chlorinated hydrocarbons in the offsite dissolved phase groundwater plume within a fractured bedrock aquifer and, if successful, ...

  • Presumptive Remedies

    A presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site. EPA is establishing presumptive remedies to accelerate site-specific analysis of remedies by focusing the feasibility study efforts. EPA expects that a presumptive remedy, when available, will be used for all CERCLA sites except under ...

  • Remediation of hydrocarbon contaminants from oil lagoons and refinery waste - case study

    In 2007 econ delivered an indirectly heated thermal desorption plant to a client in Kuwait. The plant is de-signed to treat various types of waste with hydrocarbon contaminant content. In particular refinery waste, oil lagoons and down hole drilling waste. The aim is to recover the waste hydrocarbons from the soil/sand and remediate the lagoons of their contaminants.  Due to the natural ...

  • Removal of dissolved hydrocarbons from production water by Macro Porous Polymer Extraction (MPPE)

    This paper presents the successful application of Macro Porous Polymer Extraction (MPPE) technology to remove hydrocarbons from the produced water of a natural gas plant. This water is discharged to the public watertreatment facilities and is subject to a maximum hydrocarbon contents. Elf Petroland together with Akzo Nobel investigated the use of a Macro Porous Polymer filled with an extraction ...

  • Remediation contracting, Northern England

    Project Remediation Strategies were requested to attend a redevelopment site in North-West England to supervise excavation works in an area of known hydrocarbon contamination and to assist the developer in the short term recovery of hydrocarbons. Workscope A Response Team was mobilised to site with a mobile oil-water separator, pumps, pipework and an oil ...

  • CH#954 - Diesel/Gasoline Remediation

    SITE OWNER: A Truck and Fueling Plaza SITE SURVEY: A tank area that had contained both diesel and gasoline tanks was discovered to have several leaks. The tanks from the pit area were removed. Definition and characterization revealed that not only the tank area was contaminated, but the contaminate plume had migrated under an area where a new building ...

  • Ivey International Inc. successfully emulsifies BioOil with hydrocarbon diesel

    DynaMotive Energy Systems Corporation (OTCBB: DYMTF) announced today that Ivey International Inc, a British Columbia environmental solutions company working with DynaMotive, has successfully emulsified BioOil with hydrocarbon diesel. The goal of the emulsification testing is to allow for co-burning of a BioOil/ diesel mix in stationary engines without requiring significant modifications to them. ...

  • 99% of Interceptor contamination remediated - Case study

    What is an Interceptor Tank? An interceptor tank is a trap used to filter out hydrocarbon pollutants from rainwater runoff. It is typically used in road construction and on petrol station forecourts to prevent fuel contamination of the water table via runoff. Petrol interceptors work on the premise that some hydrocarbons such as petrol and diesel float on the ...

  • Consideration of the Effects of Remediation Technologies on Natural Attenuation.

    ABSTRACT: We have long understood and continue to improve our understanding of the geochemical conditions that favor biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons. Over the last several years our understanding of the conditions that are necessary for and/or promote reductive dechlorination of chlorinated hydrocarbons has improved substantially. Over this time in situ remediation technologies have ...

  • Bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbons through landfarming: Are simplicity and cost-effectiveness the only advantages?

    The biological removal of petroleum products using landfarming has been applied commercially in large scale with relative success. The technology has been widely used due to its simplicity and cost-effectiveness. However, together with these advantages, there are physical, chemical and biological aspects of the technology that can hamper the remediation process. The dominant pollutant removal ...

  • Significant Benefits of Augmenting an Extractive Remedial System with RegenOx™

    Recently, in the United Kingdom, a combined strategy was implemented to synergistically increase the treatment rate and efficiency of subsurface remediation while also reaching an inflexible remedial deadline cost-effectively. Central to this was the novel exploitation of a feature of RegenOx that was initially designed for an alternative purpose. The remedial strategy is now being widely used on ...

  • Spolchemie site remediation and NanoRem field site application

    Site Remediation The Spolchemie site was chosen as one of the NanoRem case study sites, to test two types of nanoparticles (NPs) (zerovalent iron - nZVI and iron oxide NPs) for in situ remediation of BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylenes) contamination. Nanoremediation was seen as an opportunity to enhance the in situ biodegradation of the BTEX contaminants and to reduce the ...

  • Emission of N2o from Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons contaminated soil at different water contents added with vermicompost

    Vermicompost is typically applied to improve soil quality, but can be used to remediate hydrocarbon-contaminated soils. Little information is available on how contamination and subsequent bioremediation with vermicompost affects emissions of N2O and CO2, important greenhouse gases. A sandy loam soil with different water contents (40%, 60%, 80% and 100% of water holding capacity (WHC)) was ...

  • 93% of Oil from Railway tracks remediated - Case study

    Railway engines are predominantly diesel and as such  they discharge large volumes of oil, diesel and hydraulic fluids as they operate. These hydrocarbons contaminate the railway lines, stations and sidings on which the engines operate. For many years the hydrocarbon discharges have been ignored, with the tracks and surrounding lands becoming heaving contaminated. However, new ...

  • Nanobite remediates boyne river oil spill - Case study

    On the 6 September 2007, an oil spill from a fuel dump leaks into the beautiful Boyne River, County Louth, Ireland. Local wild fowl and their nesting areas are endangered, as is the local water supply. The coastguards deploy conventional booms to contain the spill but decide against the use of conventional chemical detergents because of the obvious damage to flora and fauna. ...

  • 99% of Oil from Leaking tanks remediated - Case study

    Spills and leaks from domestic and commercial oil tanks are a very common occurrence, caused either by the refilling of tanks or as the result of leaks. Very  often old metal tanks corrode and start leaking oil onto the ground around the tank. Also the tanks themselves become covered in dried hydrocarbons and become significantly discoloured, even black. Spilled oil can seep into the ground, ...
