FIRST USE OF PETROFIX™ - A RADICAL ADVANCE IN LIQUID ACTIVATED CARBON
Dean, W.G.
Florida Remediation Conference 2018, 5-6 December. Abstract only, 2018

PetroFix is designed to treat groundwater in higher concentration target treatment zones where free product is not observed. The Reef Deli site in Panama City discharged ~1,000 gal of gasoline in March 2007. Petroleum contamination migrated beneath the adjacent road and onto the downgradient property. Since February 2016, BTEX plus naphthalene concentrations have varied from 1,310 µg/L to 14,300 µg/L. TRPH concentrations varied from 4,300 µg/L to 11,000 µg/L during that time. A total of 1,700 lbs of PetroFix and electron acceptors was injected into 13 DPT injection points around the off-site well in March 2018. A 60-day post-injection sample was collected in May 2018. All contaminants were below both lab detection limits and Florida groundwater cleanup target levels. A 90-day post-injection sample showed all contaminants remained below lab detection limits and GCTLs. Full-scale site remediation is being designed based on the test results
