Groundwater & Soil Remediation
An oil company fueling site had measured elevated levels oils of hydrocarbons in nearby properties and requiring remediation. A series of tests were performed to identify the appropriate method of treatment. These tests included soil and groundwater studies.
Studies were operated utilizing a familiar nutrient formula and elevated dissolved oxygen based demand. The results indicated this process can reduce hydrocarbon content of both groundwater and soil. The demand cycles of dissolved oxygen injection increased with bacterial activity, and then diminished, as odors and sheen were no longer observable.
Significant reductions were observed for Benzene, Toulene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene, in both soil and groundwater. Reduction rates were greater for groundwater over the same period of time.
- Safe alternative to chemical oxidants
- Micro-nanobubbles emulsify thicker deposits for improved treatment
- Concentrated dissolved oxygen cleans surfaces of hydrocarbons
- High concentration of dissolved oxygen reduces required liquid injection volumes
