ZERO VALENT ZINC - A NOVEL REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE EMERGING CONTAMINANT 1,2,3-TRICHLOROPROPANE
O'Hara, S., E. Suchomel, and R. Deeb.
2019 Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) Federal Contaminated Sites Regional Workshop, 4-5 June, Halifax, Nova Scotia, 33 slides, 2019

An innovative treatment process using ISCR with zero-valent zinc (ZVZ) was lab and field-tested to degrade 1,2,3-trichloropropane (TCP). The presentation summarizes results from lab tests, small-scale pilot and field-scale pilot studies, and performance monitoring designed to collect data to demonstrate and validate the use of ZVZ to promote abiotic ISCR of TCP in groundwater. Data is being collected to develop performance metrics evaluating ZVZ delivery and treatment efficacy, engineering design, regulatory approval, and cost-benefit analysis. http://rpic-ibic.ca/images/2019_FCSRW/presentations/Zero_Valent_Zinc__A_Novel_Remediation_Technologies_for_the_Emerging_Contaminant_123-Trichloropropane.pdf
