REGENESIS Announces New Technologies for Groundwater Remediation and Vapor Intrusion Mitigation

REGENESIS Announces New Technologies for
Groundwater Remediation and Vapor Intrusion Mitigation

REGENESIS’ “Technologies for Tomorrow” luncheon meeting drew a full  house of remediation professionals at the May 2012 Batelle Chlorinated  Compounds Conference in Monterey, California.

SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA, June 5, 2012 — REGENESIS, a world leader in advanced technologies for contaminated site remediation, announces three new remediation-focused products: PetroCleanze™, Retro-Coat™ and Plume Stop™. Ben Mork, Ph.D., Director of Research and Development at REGENESIS, introduced the new technologies in Monterey, California at the recent Battelle-sponsored Eighth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds.

PetroCleanze™

The first technology, PetroCleanze™, was introduced in late 2011 and is a new formulation of REGENESIS’ widely-used RegenOx® in situ chemical oxidation technology, specifically designed for use at sites with high concentrations of sorbed-phased hyrdrocarbons. Upon injection, PetroCleanze actively stimulates and accelerates the desorption of bound hydrocarbons, moving them from soil into the dissolved phase, where they can be physically extracted more efficiently and rapidly. The technology is particularly valuable where an existing treatment system has reduced contaminant concentrations but is unable to completely remove trapped hydrocarbon, Dr. Mork noted. “For example, by reducing the bound contaminant mass and increasing the dissolved-phase concentrations,” he said, “PetroCleanze can enable a costly pump-and-treat system  to capture increased yields and justify its expense.” PetroCleanze is currently being used on a range of groundwater remediation project sites in the U.S. and International markets.

Retro-Coat™

Secondly, Retro-Coat™ is a recently introduced vapor intrusion technology from REGENESIS’ Land Science Technologies Division, whose widely used Geo-Seal® composite vapor barrier system received the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) Remediation Technology Award in 2008. Retro-Coat is a new chemical-resistant coating specifically engineered for application directly onto concrete slabs of existing structures. Once applied, Retro-Coat effectively mitigates vapor intrusion from chlorinated solvents and/or petroleum hydrocarbons at brownfield sites. A white paper with detailed technical information will be available later this summer.

PlumeStop™

Finally, PlumeStop™ is a research-stage technology that embodies a fundamentally new approach to the industry-wide problem of groundwater contaminant flux, i.e., the subsurface transport of contaminants, which increases plume size and heightens environmental risk. Once injected into a contaminant plume, PlumeStop begins a series of chemical cross-linking processes, leading to the formation of a porous organic matrix with the ability to capture and immobilize water-borne contaminants without significantly impeding the flow of water. Over time, biological degradation processes ultimately reduce the contaminants to harmless end products.

“With this technology we aim to offer many highly desirable features for groundwater remediation professionals and their clients,” Dr. Mork said. These include the ability to rapidly reduce groundwater contaminant concentrations, sequester contaminants in-place, reduce mass flux (including contaminant back-diffusion) and allow for risk-based closures. Dr. Mork also added, “Overall, the goal of this research is to effectively capture organic contaminants from groundwater and to do it with non-toxic ingredients, a fast reaction time, significant material longevity and minimal effects to groundwater flow rates.” Plume Stop is currently in the R&D stage, but Dr. Mork described the outlook for success as promising, with reductions in dissolved groundwater contaminant concentration reaching 50%-90% over relatively short time periods in early laboratory and in-field beta-testing.

REGENESIS Remediation Technologies Welcomes Italian Team to European Division

REGENESIS Remediation Technologies
Welcomes Italian Team to European Division

SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA, September 30, 2011 — REGENESIS, the global leader in advanced technologies for contaminated site remediation, announced today the hire of a dedicated soil and groundwater remediation solutions sales team in Italy. The new team is comprised of Marcello Carboni, who will serve as Mediterranean District Manager, and Dr. Alberto Leombruni, who will function as a key technical resource for the region.

Marcello Carboni holds a degree in Environmental Engineering from Politecnico di Torino and was previously the Business Development Manager for the contaminated site remediation group of TRS Servizi Ambiente, which provided consulting, project management and fieldwork services. Over the past ten years, Mr. Carboni has designed and conducted numerous site investigations, laboratory and field test programs, treatability studies and full-scale applications of bioremediation and in situ chemical oxidation and reduction (ISCO and ISCR) technologies, in addition to conventional in situ extractive technologies such as pump-and-treat, air sparging, bioventing and soil vapor extraction.

Dr. Alberto Leombruni graduated in Environmental Engineering from the University of Perugia and earned his Ph.D. in a joint program administered by the Politecnico di Milano and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA. In July 2010, Dr. Leombruni joined Regenesis as an intern, providing local Italian support to environmental engineering firms for the successful implementation of in situ remediation programs involving REGENESIS’ technologies.

“By expanding the European division of REGENESIS, Mr. Marcello Carboni and Dr. Alberto Leombruni will provide essential remediation support for the Mediterranean region,” said Dr. Jeremy Birnstingl, Managing Director for REGENESIS Ltd. “Their backgrounds, expertise and technical understanding of groundwater and soil remediation align extremely well with the REGENESIS mission to provide and support our suite of innovative technologies. We are excited to have them as part of the growing REGENESIS team, and look forward to their success”.

Within REGENESIS, Marcello Carboni and Dr. Leombruni complement a strong European team in the UK, Ireland, Belgium and Italy. They will provide technical support and application advice for the existing REGENESIS product line and assistance in the market introduction of new in situ remediation products shortly to be released by REGENESIS.

New Report Gives Technical Guidance for Application of In Situ Remedial Reagents

New Report Gives Technical Guidance
for Application of In Situ Remedial Reagents

SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA, March 10, 2010 — A newly available technical report by a state-sponsored working group of Los Angeles-area environmental scientists, regulators and remedial contractors provides a detailed guidance document for subsurface injection of in situ remedial reagents (ISRRs) to eliminate groundwater contaminants. The 46-page document is available for download online at https://raincrosshosting.com/regenesis-2018-2.

Environmental professionals have had notable successes in the Los Angeles region and elsewhere treating groundwater and soil contaminants with subsurface injections of bioremediation and chemical oxidation reagents, which can efficiently destroy many contaminants in place, safely and at much lower cost compared with conventional engineered treatment systems. To minimize any potential environmental, health or safety impacts from such practices, the ISRR Injection Working Group was convened in 2008 under the auspices of the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board (LARWQCB) and tasked with identifying specific best practices for the safe and efficient use of subsurface injectables.

Regenesis staff members were instrumental in drafting the initial technical document and informally serving as industry chair to incorporate input and comments from fellow members of the ISRR Working Group. “The working group members have extensive experience in the design and performance of in-situ chemical treatment and bioremediation projects,” said Craig Sandefur, Vice President of Technical Services at Regenesis (San Clemente, CA), who was responsible for drafting of the initial document. “Their contributions make this report an excellent baseline reference manual for remediation projects of this type over a wide range of soil types and project conditions.”

The report is intended for use by regulators, consultants, and appliers of ISRR materials, and provides general tools and best practices for the use of injectable remediation materials. Guidance is provided on understanding site hydraulics and other characteristics, delivery methods, application equipment and monitoring methodologies, as well as planning, design and field implementation, including injection volume safety standards for various soil types.

San Clemente, CA-based Regenesis has been advancing the state of the art in the environmental industry since 1994 with proven technologies that significantly reduce the cost, time and difficulty of restoring contaminated soil and groundwater.
