REGENESIS recently released a new technical bulletin focused on PersulfOx’s ability to remediate pentachlorophenol (PCP) – a pesticide and disinfectant used industrially as a wood preservative. A study, performed by Regenesis, investigated the ability of PersulfOx to treat PCP contamination. Water samples containing PCP (20 mg/L) were treated with PersulfOx and after 27 days, a >99.9% contaminant reduction was observed. To read more about this study, click here.
REGENESIS recently announced the commercial launch of its latest product offering: PlumeStop™ Colloidal Biomatrix. This new and innovative remediation technology was developed to stop migrating groundwater contaminant plumes by rapidly reducing contaminant concentrations with a sorptive medium while also enhancing or accelerating microbial-driven biodegradation process.
PlumeStop was officially launched during last week’s Battelle-sponsored Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds in Monterey, Calif. Regenesis’ President and CEO Scott Wilson welcomed over 100 attendees to an exclusive luncheon held during the event which featured a presentation from Dr. Jeremy Birnstingl, VP of Environmental Technology at Regenesis. Dr. Birnstingl discussed the progression of PersulfOx® Catalyzed Persulfate, an ISCO technology, which the company successfully brought to market in 2012.
PlumeStop is a black, silky liquid that is easy to inject into groundwater where it widely distributes into the subsurface.
Dr. Ben Mork, VP of Research & Development at Regenesis, was the final speaker at the luncheon and unveiled the groundwork for PlumeStop. Dr. Mork explained that its unique effectiveness is derived from the first-ever use of a highly dispersible, fast-acting, sorption-based technology which captures and concentrates dissolved-phase contaminants within its structure or matrix. Once groundwater contaminants are sorbed (held) onto the matrix, natural biodegradation (bio) processes proceed at an accelerated rate, forming a highly effective “biomatrix.” He also pointed out that Plumestop secures groundwater contaminant concentration reduction very rapidly (in days) and is effective on most organic groundwater contaminants including hydrocarbons, halogenated compounds and a wide variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs).
Additional information about PlumeStop, including a detailed White Paper, is available online at www.plumestop.com.
PersulfOx® Catalyzed Persulfate offers remediation professionals a new choice in persulfate-based ISCO reagents. The material itself is supplied as a 100% soluble, granular material that is easily mixed with water and then applied to the contaminated subsurface.
PersulfOx is a single component product with built-in-activation making it distinctly different from traditional activated persulfate. The use of activated persulfate is inherently more complex and hazardous as it requires a separate, external activation step using either hydrogen peroxide, sodium hydroxide, chelated iron or heat. PersulfOx is uniquely engineered to provide efficiency and cost savings as a result of simplified handling and field application. It also reduces the health and safety risks associated with the storage, management and use of hazardous activators.
To see just how easy PersulfOx is to apply watch the short video below featuring Craig Sandefur, VP of Technology at REGENESIS, giving a short pre-application mixing demonstration.

Enhanced Aerobic Bioremediation
Winter has arrived…take a look at these pictures of a recent enhanced aerobic bioremediation application using Oxygen Release Compound ADVANCED (ORC ADVANCED®) in the Arctic Circle.
This project was completed using direct-push injection in ambient air temperatures generally between 10 and 20 degrees Fahrenheit with heavy snow at times. In spite of the deep freeze and the cold temperatures, the ORC Advanced injection went as planned and the subsurface had no problem accepting the ORC Advanced slurry.
