In Situ Remediation

of Chlorinated Solvents

Chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs), or ‘chlorinated solvents’, are common contaminants found in the soil and groundwater at manufacturing, dry cleaner and redevelopment sites.

REGENESIS offers a range of injectable remediation reagents that can be used alone or co-applied as part of a combined remedy approach.


Chlorinated ethenes: perchloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE), dichloroethene (DCE), vinyl chloride (VC). Chlorinated ethanes: trichloroethane (TCA), dichloroethane (DCA) – and many more. For a full overview please see our Range of Treatable Contaminants.

In Situ Remediation Approaches

Enhanced Reductive Dechlorination (ERD): 3-D Microemulsion®, AquiFix

Bioaugmentation: BDI Plus®

In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR): S-MicroZVI®

In Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO): RegenOx®, PersulfOx®

Adsorption and biodegradation (ISSB): PlumeStop® 

or a combination of these approaches.

Application Methods

Injected under low pressure using direct push technology or via injection wells. Substrates may also be applied directly into excavations. Safe and easy to use in- and outdoors.


In situ remediation is sustainable cost-effective and rapidly applied. Once injected, the remediation may be simply observed through groundwater sampling with no ongoing maintenance activities, operational cost or energy use.
