Our Spotlight Projects

East Orange, NJ Area
Emulsified Zero Valent Iron and Provect-IR to Address High TCE Concentrations in New Jersey – A former manufacturing facility was impacted with chlorinated volatile organic compounds, with maximum groundwater trichloroethene (TCE) concentrations of 99,000 ug/L. A combination of emulsified zero valent iron and Provect-IR® was applied to limit plume migration and address the high TCE concentrations. Anaerobic bioremediation is still ongoing, but TCE concentrations have been reduced from 99,000 ug/L to less than 53 ug/L at the primary target well.

St. Albans, West Virginia Area
Residual Petroleum Hydrocarbon Impacts at Former Gas Station – An all-too-familiar issue is residual groundwater petroleum hydrocarbon contamination at former gas stations that have already undergone tank removal, excavation and additional remedial efforts. This former gas station in West Virginia had relatively low level BTEX, MTBE, and TBA impacts in two on-site monitoring wells. The most impacted monitoring well exhibited benzene, MTBE, and TBA grounwater concentrations of 77 ug/L, 72.8 ug/L, and 1,480 ug/L, respectively. Following application of Provect-OX®, which is a self-activating in situ chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation technology, non-detect results were achieved within approximately 1 year.
