PlumeStop Eliminates Offsite TCE Migration Meeting Site Goals in 60 Days
This case study reviews the site of a large-scale in situ groundwater treatment of trichloroethene (TCE) at a former industrial manufacturing facility in the Midwest that quickly achieved and then sustained performance objectives. TCE and low concentrations of other chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs), cis-1,2-dichloroethene, vinyl chloride, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane, were treated using an innovative sorption-enhanced reductive dechlorination (ERD) approach virtually eliminating contaminants by the first monitoring event within 60 days of application. A permeable reactive barrier (PRB), installed at the site property boundary, has maintained 100 percent reduction in TCE for over three years, meeting the application’s performance objectives by cutting off the site’s contribution to a more extensive groundwater TCE plume.

Low-cost Bioremediation of Chlorinated Solvents
HRC is an engineered, hydrogen release compound designed specifically for enhanced, in situ anaerobic bioremediation of chlorinated compounds in groundwater or highly saturated soils. HRC enables enhanced anaerobic biodegradation by adding hydrogen (an electron donor) to groundwater and/or soil to increase the number and vitality of indigenous microorganisms able to perform the naturally occurring process of enhanced reductive dechlorination. Due to its capability of being applied via permanent wells, direct-push, and excavations, this reagent allows for clean, low-cost, non-disruptive application.
Accelerated Treatment of Intermediate Compounds
BDI Plus is designed to provide rapid, effective treatment of undesirable anaerobic dechlorination intermediate compounds such as dichloroethene (DCE) and vinyl chloride (VC), and is a low-cost means of enhancing the anaerobic biodegradation process. Once in place, this microbial consortium accelerates the rate of chlorinated contaminant degradation from parent compounds to intermediates like DCE and VC and completely through to harmless end products such as ethene and ethane. It is highly compatible with a range of electron donors.
Over 8 Million Cubic Feet of Groundwater Treated In 13 Days
This case study reviews the site of a large-scale enhanced reductive dechlorination (ERD) treatment of chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs) applied in a fractured bedrock aquifer at a voluntary remediation site in Pennsylvania. REGENESIS Remediation Services (RRS) began the application in May 2020 and completed it in less than 13 days, averaging nearly 7,000 gallons of fluid volume injected per day at this active facility. In total, more than 260,000 combined pounds of 3DME, CRS and BDI Plus were injected for ERD treatment of the CVOCs. The extensive injection well network and large injection volume required RRS to develop an innovative injection process and containment design.

A Liquid Iron Based-Reagent for the Enhanced In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR) of Chlorinated Contaminants
CRS (Chemical Reducing Solution) is an iron-based amendment for in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) of halogenated hydrocarbon contaminants such as chlorinated ethenes and ethanes. This highly efficient in situ remediation technology contains a form of liquid iron which provides better distribution than can be achieved by directly injecting a solid iron material into the subsurface. The product allows for seamless integration with anaerobic bioremediation, and is easy to apply with the electron donor 3-D Microemulsion.
