Client Spotlight: Chris Poulsen
When Chris Poulsen, Principal Engineer for Farallon Consulting, looks to the future of environmental remediation, he sees a two-sided coin of sorts – on side showing job security due to the high demand for environmental services, and the other reflecting how far we still need to go to treat the multitude of contaminated sites. He shares, “During my first job in consulting, a manager at Union Pacific Railroad told me all of the environmental cleanups would be finished before the year 2000. Today there is no shortage of work, and with emerging contaminants such as PFAS, we are going to need more engineers in the foreseeable future.”

PetroFix Reduces Benzene by 99% Positioning the Site to Achieve Regulatory Closure
This case study reviews a retail petroleum station with a petroleum hydrocarbon plume in groundwater originating from the UST pit and extending offsite across a roadway and onto another commercial property. After evaluating a range of remedial options, the environmental consultant CGRS specified PetroFix as the most economically feasible option to quickly remediate the benzene plume and achieve site closure.
Apply Activated Carbon Under Low Pressure to Treat Petroleum Hydrocarbons
PetroFix is an activated carbon remediation technology that is easily injected in situ under low pressure, distributes in the subsurface without fracturing, and includes electron acceptors to stimulate biodegradation of petroleum contaminants in soil and groundwater. This cost-effective technology is designed to remediate petroleum spills and provide immediate results for gas station and UST sites. It works with the PetroFix Design Assistant™, an online design tool that enables users to individually tailor their site designs and self-apply PetroFix.
Protection of a Chalk Stream Using an In-Situ Permeable Reactive Barrier with PetroFix and ORC Advanced
This video shows a project where the integrated remediation of petroleum hydrocarbons in soils and groundwater was carried out by Rake Remediation. It was a sensitive project, due to the location next to a chalk stream. The use of an injectable in-situ permeable reactive barrier (I-PRB) made protection of the stream safe and simple, reducing remediation time and cost. The barrier consisted of the REGENESIS technologies PetroFix and ORC Advanced.
