A full-scale remediation using an injectable sorptive biobarrier downgradient of a service station site impacted with MTBE and TBA was conducted in Daly City, Calif. The results span more than one year post-injection of PlumeStop® Liquid Activated Carbon. Biodegradation played a key role in the on-site remediation and continues to play a key role in the off-site reduction of MTBE and TBA concentrations.
