  • Failure of Magnesium Peroxide to Remediate Petroleum Hydrocarbon-Contaminated Sites (PDF)

    Researchers promote magnesium peroxide as a viable method to aerobically bioremediate petroleum hydrocarbons and restore groundwater quality. Suppliers claim that dissolved oxygen released in the saturated zone promotes biological growth for degrading a wide range of hydrocarbons dissolved in water and sorbed onto soil particles. Yet, staff with the CaliforniaRegional Water Quality Control Board, ...

  • Remediation of silty-clay hydrocarbon contaminated site using Ivey-sol selective phase transfer technology

    Earlier this year, Ivey International Inc. secured its first remediation project in Alberta using its Ivey-sol Selective Phase Transfer Technology (SPTT). This patented technology is being used to treat extensive soil and groundwater contamination at an active service station in Red Deer, Alberta. With a residential area nearby, the environmental sensitivity is relatively high. Unfortunately, ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • In-situ remediation of Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon contaminated soils - New Jersey, USA case study

    Executive Summary A New Jersey utility company operated a regulator station on the site of a former manufactured gas plant in central New Jersey. The gas transfer station contained a large natural gas feeder main that fed major population centers in the southern part of the state. The regulator station contained an area approximately 3,600 ft2 contaminated to a depth of 1 meter with both ...

  • Enhanced Bio-Remediation of Wastewater

    Bioremediation has been used to treat hydrocarbon contamination in municipal wastewater for centuries. Most microbes used in bioremediation today are naturally occurringyetspecifically chosen and cultured versus being genetically modified. Bioremediation rivals techniques such as pump and treat extraction systems, as it provide cost savings for municipalities, as well as environmental savings by ...

  • Surfactant enhanced aquifer remediation (SEAR) using Ivey-sol surfactant technology

    This paper will focus on the application of Ivey-sol non-ionic surfactant technology to improve the in-situ remediation of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination is soil and bedrock aquifers. Normally hydrophobic organic chemicals (HOC) exhibit limited solubility in groundwater as the contaminants tend to partition onto the soil and bedrock matrix. This partitioning can account for as much as ...

  • 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 ...
