TWO NEW REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR TREATING HIGH CONTAMINANT CONCENTRATIONS IN GROUNDWATER
Leonard, G. | REMEDy: Panceum for Contamination Areas, 25 September, Warsaw, Poland, 2019

Two in situ technologies were presented, Sulfidated Micro-scale Colloidal Zero Valent Iron (S-MicroZVI) and PetroFix®, which are used to remove high concentrations of contaminants with minimal interference in the field. S-MicroZVI is an engineered ZVI product that provides abiotic degradation, enhanced biological degradation, reduced daughter products, and shorter treatment times for source area treatment of chlorinated solvents and pesticides. PetroFix consists of micro-scale activated carbon that adsorbs petroleum hydrocarbons and related organic compounds and biologically degrades the sorbed contaminants using nitrate and sulfate as electron donors. A case study on the use of PetroFix to remediate a petroleum hydrocarbon plume in groundwater at a former bulk petroleum storage facility in South Bend, Indiana, was presented. https://www.remedysummit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/REMEDy-2019-Regenesis-slides-FINAL.pdf For a recording of the presentation as a webinar, see https://regenesis.com/eur/two-new-remediation-technologies-s-microzvi-petrofix/.
