Turn-key Solutions For Effective Treatment of Chlorinated Solvents, Petroleum Hydrocarbons and PFAS at Manufacturing Sites

Resulting Contamination and Environmental Impacts

Whether it’s a large industrial manufacturing site with historic releases of VOCs or a small machine shop marked by the presence of TCE, many are turning to REGENESIS to address contaminant levels caused by hazardous materials and wastes, accidental spills, faulty equipment and or leaking underground storage tanks (USTs).


Industrial/Manufacturing Environmental Solutions

Soil and groundwater remediation solutions at industrial/manufacturing sites may include the following: excavation of the source area, soil mixing, groundwater source area treatment, free-product (DNAPL) removal, dissolved-phase groundwater plume treatment, plume cut-off barriers, mixed-plume treatment and hexavalent chromium metals remediation strategies.

These solutions can be achieved using well-documented, proven and cost-effective in situ approaches such as sorption, enhanced anaerobic biodegradation (chlorinateds), enhanced aerobic biodegradation (petroleum) and/or in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO).


Resulting Contamination and Environmental Impacts

Most contamination at industrial/manufacturing sites is directly related to chemicals and solvents used in industrial and manufacturing process operations. Chlorinated solvents such as perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE) were historically, and to some extent are still, widely used as cleaning and degreasing agents on a variety of surfaces.

Specific variations of these solvents exist including vapor degreasing grades for metal degreasing and technical grades used to manufacture other chemicals. Petroleum hydrocarbons are prevalent at these sites and are used to fuel vehicles, generators and other industrial and manufacturing equipment
Manufacturing sites are also marked by the presence of hexavalent chromium contamination used in certain plating and processing industries. Mixed plumes can be a factor when chlorinated solvents and petroleum hydrocarbons come together in the subsurface.

A Business Case Approach to Site Clean Up

Business case for in-situ remediationWhen assessing risk posed by environmental liabilities, it has become increasingly clear that regulatory closure should be viewed as only an interim milestone. This is because the various strategy options for eliminating exposure pathways and attaining regulatory closure can have vastly different costs when it comes to future liabilities and long-term stewardship (LTS). All too often, remediation strategies focus on short term costs without factoring in requirements for proper LTS and the associated costs of implementation. This ebook includes a guide to cost-effective remediation planning, and understanding your total cost to remediate

FAQs about Industrial/Manufacturing Sites

If contamination is identified on your property, it is necessary to evaluate the property usage and any potential exposure of people to the contamination. Action should then be taken to prevent any uncceptable exposures. It is recommended that you hire a knowledgable environmental consultant to advise you through the process and to assist with any investigation and cleanup. Determining the source of the contamination will also help to clarify the issue of liability.

Site risk assessments determine the potential effects of environmental impacts to humans, animals, and sensitive site receptors and in doing so drives the need for remedial action, sets cleanup levels, and defines requirements for closure. Site risk assessments are an integral part of the site evaluation process and are often relied upon by regulatory bodies when making decisions.

Contaminated land can have detrimental effects to the environment by releasing hazardous chemicals that kill fish, impair avian reproduction, and contaminate the food web.
