Green, Sustainable Remediation Reduces Cost and Environmental Impact

A 25-acre former refinery located in a mixed-use industrial/commercial area in New York was contaminated with PFAS. Benchmark & TurnKey, a leading engineering and redevelopment consulting company, engaged REGENESIS for an in situ remedy that would effectively and economically cut off the groundwater plume and prevent migration of PFAS offsite.

The site was entered into the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYSDEC’s) Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) to facilitate its commercial redevelopment. Remedial alternatives were evaluated for a comprehensive site closure strategy, and approaches were scored based on NYSDEC’s Green Remediation Policy Document (DER-31), which considers the “environmental impacts of treatment technologies and remedy stewardship over the long term.”

Case study highlights:

  • Brownfield cleanup program’s green remediation policy leads to PlumeStop for PFAS treatment
  • Skilfully managed PlumeStop application achieves sustainability and cost reduction objectives
  • NYSDEC confirms cleanup requirements have been achieved, making the site eligible for redevelopment
