Treating high levels of petroleum hydrocarbons: case studies of in situ sorption
First broadcast: 3rd December 2019
Speaker: Jack Shore, District Manager, UK & Scandinavia, REGENESIS
In this live webinar Jack Shore discusses the theory and practical use of micron-scale liquid activated carbon to remediate contamination from oil spills, leaks and historic plumes.
PetroFix™ is a water-based suspension of 1-2µm activated carbon and biostimulating electron acceptors. The treatment combines in situ sorption with syntrophic biological degradation. This allows for high levels of petroleum hydrocarbons to be targeted, providing immediate treatment and long-lasting remediation results. This webinar covers:
- Detailed explanation of the remediation process
-Rapid sorption of the petroleum hydrocarbons
-Enhanced anaerobic oxidation
- Practical application scenarios
-Direct push injection
-Injection through wells
- Discussion of multiple case studies
- Lessons learned from field experience
This webinar is of interest to contaminated land practitioners and spill response professionals.
