SAN CLEMENTE, CA – (February 13, 2019) REGENESIS, the recognized global leader in in situ soil and groundwater remediation technologies, is proud to announce the launch of S-MicroZVITM.  The new in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) amendment is an innovative, micron-scale, sulfidated zero-valent iron (ZVI) remedial amendment enabling environmental practitioners with a complete solution to quickly and effectively eliminate chlorinated hydrocarbon contaminants on a wide variety of sites. S-MicroZVI promotes the destruction of many organic pollutants and is most commonly used with chlorinated hydrocarbons.  Engineered to provide an optimal source of micro-scale ZVI, S-MicroZVI is easy to use and delivers enhanced reactivity with the target contaminants via multiple reaction pathways. S-Micro ZVI destroys chlorinated contaminants through a direct chemical reaction and also stimulates anaerobic biological degradation by rapidly creating a reducing environment favorable for reductive dechlorination. The launch of S-MicroZVI replaces REGENESIS’ AquaZVI and MicroZVI technologies and introduces a highly effective sulfidated ZVI remedial fluid proven in the field to accelerate contaminant reduction by more than an order of magnitude when compared to commodity iron products.

REGENESIS’ PhD-level scientists developed S-MicroZVI as a glycerol suspension combining micron-scale iron with an iron sulfide surface catalyst, specifically designed to rapidly remove contamination from groundwater and soil.  This proprietary technology results in rapid reduction of contaminants while promoting intrinsic biodegradation. Unlike other remedial technologies, S-MicroZVI can be easily applied, injected under low pressure into the subsurface. The product does not require high pressure “fracking” for application and is applied with ease using readily available equipment.

REGENESIS has spent considerable time testing S-MIcroZVI in laboratory and field studies and it has minimal impacts on groundwater quality, and geochemistry.  Developed by Dr. John Freim, a technical innovator in the development of in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) technologies, S-MicroZVI promises to be the most easily distributed, reactive and cost-effective ZVI product available on the market today. Scott Wilson, President and CEO of REGENESIS, shares “Dr. Freim and the R&D Team have accomplished something quite extraordinary in the development of S-MicroZVI and we are excited about the results we have seen to-date in the lab and testing in the field. The new and improved ZVI amendment addresses the market’s need for a safe, effective and easy to apply ZVI amendment that is proven to be superior at reducing chlorinated hydrocarbon contaminant levels when compared to other approaches.”

REGENESIS, a world-class leader in soil and groundwater remediation technologies, provides safe and effective solutions addressing a wide range of contaminants, including emerging contaminants like PFOS/PFOA.
