New in situ soil and groundwater treatment or oxidation technologies have become popular, for remediation of a wide range of soil and groundwater contaminants.
In Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) Remediation involves the mixing or injection of strong oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide, ozone gas, potassium permanganate or persulfates. This can be a significant project cost savings that avoid inflated offsite treatment and disposal costs. In most cases, it prevents the generation of hazardous waste disposal and where it doesn’t the cost savings comes in a lesser disposal cost due to the reduction of contaminants concentrations.
Metals Fixation or Stabilization is achieved by mixing in situ various proprietary chemistries into the metals contaminated soil. This technology can treat various heavy metals and the process happens within hours. This allows for expedient sampling immediately following the mixing to help speed up the waste characterization process. This technique prevents generating hazardous waste and ultimately becomes project cost savings.
