  • Passively Enhanced In-Situ Biodegradation of Chlorinated Solvents

    Harding Lawson Associates (HLA) conducted a field demonstration to evaluate in situ enhanced anaerobic biodegradation of chlorinated solvents using Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC). The technology is designed to enhance the natural biodegradation process for a more rapid and complete degradation of the organic contaminants to non-toxic compounds (e.g., ethylene). This paper presents the results ...

  • Multiyear Temporal Changes in Chlorinated Solvent Concentrations at 23 Monitored Natural Attenuation Sites

    Introduction There is an increasing interest in predicting how long it will take natural attenuation processes to remediate groundwater plumes. The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) Directive (USEPA 1999) specifies that MNA relies on “ . . . a variety of physical, chemical, or biological processes that, under favorable conditions, act without human ...


  • Solvent Recovery System Keeps Presses Rolling at World`s Largest Gravure Printing Plant

    When QUAD/GRAPHICS Inc. entered the publication gravure printing market, it followed the axiom of Daniel Burnham, the 19th century architect and urban planner, to 'make no small plans.' In 1985, the Pewaukee, Wis.-based printing company purchased two 96-inch web, eight-color, high-speed presses and installed them at its new printing plant in Lomira, Wis., near Milwaukee. Conventional wisdom at ...
