  • Reduction of chlorinous odor by the combination of oxidation and ion-exchange treatments

    To better control chlorinous odor in tap water, we assessed the performance of the combination of oxidation (ozonation or advanced oxidation processes, AOP) and ion-exchange treatment. In this process, the hydrophilic neutral fraction (a major dissolved organic matter (DOM) fraction) is converted to ionic species, and these ions and ammonium ion are effectively removed during ion-exchange ...

  • pHcontrol for enhanced reductive bioremediation of chlorinated solvent source zones

    Abstract Enhanced reductive dehalogenation is an attr active treatment technology for in situ remediation of chlorinated solvent DNAPL source areas. Reductive dehalogenation is an acid-forming process with hydrochloric acid and also organic acids from fermentation of the electron donors typically building up in the source zone during remediation. This can lead to groundwater acidifica tion ...

  • Interactions between biological and abiotic pathways in the reduction of chlorinated solvents

    While biologically mediated reductive dechlorination continues to be a significant focus of chlorinated solvent remediation, there has been an increased interest in abiotic reductive processes for the remediation of chlorinated solvents. In situ chemical reduction (ISCR) uses zero-valent iron (ZVI)–based technologies, such as nanoscale iron and bimetallic ZVI, as well as naturally occurring ...


  • Long-Term Sustainability of Reductive Dechlorination Reactions at Chlorinated Solvents Sites

    The sustainability of biodegradation reactions is of interest at Type 1 chlorinated solvent sites where monitored natural attenuation is being considered as a remedial alternative. Type 1 chlorinated solvent sites are sites where anthropogenic electron donors (such as landfill leachate or fermentable organics in the waste materials) exist with dissolved chlorinated solvents, resulting in ...


  • Trihalomethane reduction in drinkable water by controlled chlorination and use of hydrogen peroxide

    The reduction of trihalomethane (THM) formation in the water treatment process by a controlled chlorination of ammonia and successive quenching with hydrogen peroxide has been studied. The optimum values of the process parameters have been determined with a calculation programme that makes use of the kinetic constants determined with the water to be treated. The obtained data have been verified ...

  • Results of the Application of Enhanced Reductive Dechlorination of Chlorinated Organics at Eight Sites (PDF)

    Enhanced reductive dechlorination is becoming more widely evaluated as a technology for the remediation of chlorinated organic compounds. The performance of this technology as reported in the literature, is often quite variable, making it difficult to evaluate the applicability of the technology. CH2M HILL has been involved in the application of this technology at several sites over the past few ...

  • Simultaneous reduction of by-products of chlorine dioxide and chlorine using Fe(II)–Al(III) coagulant mixture

    Ferrous iron has been considered very useful for removal of chlorite, a by-product of chlorine dioxide. However, a serious problem can occur associated with high residual iron concentrations in water after Fe(II) treatment, especially at weak acidic condition (pH 6), having a higher capacity of chlorite reduction. Simultaneous removal of chlorite, dissolved iron, and humic acids was achieved with ...

  • Controlling the addition of Chlorine into a Process

    There are several methods for controlling the addition of chlorine into a process. These methods include flow proportional injection, ORP (oxidation reduction potential) or a residual chlorine analyzer. Each method measures a different process characteristic. Depending on the specific type of process being controlled, there generally is a best choice for controlling the injection of either ...

  • Sanitation Using Ozone & Chlorine

    For nearly 100 years, ozone has been used all over the world for water sanitation. It is nature’s strongest oxidizer and has a byproduct of pure oxygen. Chlorine, on the other hand, is a very effective, time-proven chemical, but is ineffective against hard-to-kill microorganisms such as cryptosporidium. It also has some unpleasant byproducts. Together, however, these two substances can ...

  • In situ treatment of a complex mix of chlorinated solvents: anaerobic reductive dehalogenation after chemical oxidation

    Treatment of chlorinated organic compounds has been ongoing at this New England facility (Site) for over 15 years. The extraction and above ground treatment system for groundwater containing tetrachloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE), 1,1,1-trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA) and other chlorinated organic compounds has been running since September 1992. The full-scale remedy of in-situ chemical ...

  • Design tool for estimation of buffer requirement for enhanced reductive dechlorination of chlorinated solvents in groundwater

    To assist in the design of enhanced reductive dechlorination systems for in situ remediation of chlorinated solvent source zones, the software BUCHLORAC (BUffering of deCHLORination ACidity) was developed to predict the amount of buffer required to maintain the groundwater pH in a DNAPL treatment zone within the optimal range for dechlorinating bacteria. Reductive dechlorination is an acidforming ...

  • The effect of chlorine and combined chlorine/UV treatment on coliphages in drinking water disinfection

    Chlorine disinfection is a globally used method to ensure the safety of drinking water. However, it has not always been successful against viruses and, therefore, it is important to find new methods to disinfect water. Seventeen different coliphages were isolated from the treated municipal wastewater. These coliphages and MS2 were treated with different dosages of chlorine in drinking water, ...

  • Landfill remediation with refrigerants and chlorinated solvents

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits ...

  • Oxidation v. reduction: how to decide?

    Is in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) or in-situ chemical reduction (ISCR) the best option for your site? What factors should be considered to make such a decision? Many chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds (CHCs) can be degraded via oxidative or reductive processes. Accordingly, various ISCO technologies using oxidizing agents such as hydrogen peroxide (Fenton’s chemistry), permanganate, ozone or ...


  • Drinking water: the problem of chlorinous odours

    Chlorinous off-flavours in drinking water are a leading cause of complaints to Australian water utilities and other utilities worldwide. The occurrence and causes of chlorinous odours in drinking water were investigated with the use of an odour panel, trained using a modified flavour profile analysis technique. A new system for classifying water types according to the causes of chlorinous odours ...
