Combined Remedies Webinar Series

Achieving remediation site closures can be challenging, time-consuming, and costly. Treatment train approaches or combined remedies are often a practical means to address difficult remediation sites. The optimal approach to soil and groundwater clean-up often requires the use of multiple technologies either sequentially or concurrently to achieve the most cost-effective approach throughout the entire life cycle of cleanup at a project site.

Carus is excited to announce our upcoming webinar series, Combined Remedies. We are fortunate to bring to you five industry experts presenting on various combined remedy topics throughout the upcoming months. Join us for one, two, or all of our 30-minute webinars.

Treatment Train Approach with Slow Release Oxidants: Use of Remox SR+ Cylinders in Treatment for Chlorinated Solvents in Groundwater

March 8, 2015
12:00 -12:30 pm CST

Presenter:
Grant Walsom

Summary:
Historical industrial activities using solvents for metal degreasing as well as dry-cleaning operations have created many remediation challenges. Innovative and cost-effective methods for treatment of chlorinated VOCs (typically PCE, TCE, C-DCE, and vinyl chloride) in soil and groundwater continue to evolve with new products and applications.

Carus Corporation’s RemOx® SR+ ISCO reagent is a solid form of permanganate and persulfate encased in a paraffin wax that slowly releases the oxidants into the subsurface for a prolonged treatment of the chlorinated VOCs. The solid form is easy and safe to install, while the prolonged treatment ability provides the ability to continue to treat the VOCs long after installation.

XCG Consulting Limited has successfully employed RemOx SR+ cylinders at four different sites in Ontario with varied geological settings. One of the sites was the first RemOx SR+ application in Canada.

This presentation will briefly describe the product and advantages of its use while exploring case studies and their successes through sharing site-specific data.

Biography:
Mr. Walsom is a senior remediation engineer with over 23 years of experience. He is a Partner at XCG Consulting Limited and leads the Remediation and Risk Assessment Business Unit. Mr. Walsom is a Professional Engineer registered in Ontario and Alberta, and a registered Consulting Engineer in Ontario. In addition, Mr. Walsom is a Qualified Person (QP) as defined by the Ontario Regulation 153/04 (Brownfield Regulation). Mr. Walsom is currently the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Ontario Environment Industry Association (ONEIA) and is the co-Chair for the Excess Soils Working Group of the Brownfield Advocacy Committee. Mr. Walsom also serves on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Brownfield Network (CBN), currently as President.

Soil Blending: Amendment Kinetics and Soil Strength Recovery

April 5, 2018
12:00 pm 

Presenter:
Dr. Joe Rossabi, Redox Tech

Summary:
Soil blending is an aggressive remedial technique that requires a focus of resources (equipment, personnel, and usually amendment) on a particular contaminated volume. It is often performed under time critical remediation drivers like property transfer and rapid construction, which will limit subsequent access to a site for additional cleanup or polishing. As a result, the remediation strategy must be reliable, fast, and comprehensive. The effective rate of reaction (kinetics) of the applied amendment is vital to the success of the cleanup. In addition to successful resolution of contamination, recovery of the site for future use (e.g., commercial/residential buildings, sports fields, etc.) after soil blending can be as important as the cleanup. There are several ways to recover the original or even improve soil strength and other site properties to rapidly enable the future use goals for the site.  Concepts and case studies will be presented.

Biography:
Joe Rossabi is the part owner of Redox Tech, LLC where he applies innovative remediation solutions, including chemical injection and soil blending (for oxidation, reduction, and bio-enhanced degradation of contaminants), metals stabilization techniques, hydraulic fracturing, steam injection, and electrochemistry to soil and groundwater contamination. He is an expert in subsurface access and amendment application techniques. Redox Tech is a small business and leading innovator in the development of new chemistries and strategies for in situ contaminant treatment including the application of solid, liquid, and gas phases to address subsurface contamination.

Combined Remedies Series

Combining Remedial Technologies and Implementation Methods to Address Chlorinated Solvent Impacts at Complex Sites

June 14, 2018
12-12:30pm CDT

Presenter:
Mike Mazzarese, AST Environmental Inc. 

Summary:
Complex sites require complex solutions.  Challenges typically include heterogeneous geology and contaminant mass distribution, vadose and/or saturated contaminant mass, and concentrations that span several orders of magnitude.  These require us as practitioners to often consider multiple remedial technologies and approaches to reach the site specific goals within the desired timeframes.  Often technologies are inefficiently implemented sequentially; this extends the remediation timeframe and requires re-characterization between remedial phases.  This presentation will highlight several projects where multiple technologies were successfully implemented in concert.  The strategies for each site included different approaches for source and plume remediation.

Site #1: An industrial property utilized chlorinated solvents for equipment maintenance from the 1950’s to 1970’s. Past operations resulted in multiple source areas and it is suspected that chlorinated solvents were discharged to drain pipes into a former settling pond. TCE concentrations have been detected in groundwater at a maximum concentration of 730 mg/L and in soils up to 6,800 ug/g.  Soil blending was performed utilizing chemical oxidation (sodium permanganate) to treat the unsaturated TCE impacts exceeding an average 1,100 ug/g.  BOS 100® was injected into the saturated zone in a barrier configuration to limit the mass flux from the source area and prevent contamination from leaving the subject property.

Site #3: A buried drum of TCE was discovered during site redevelopment.  In situ chemical oxidation via potassium permanganate was used to successfully treat the source area.  Downgradient of the source a permeable reactive barrier was installed via direct push injection in order to decrease the mass flux of the plume encroaching into a wetlands.  Data will be presented from the source remediation as well as from the monitoring wells up and downgradient of the barrier.

Biography:
Mike has been involved with in-situ remediation for seventeen years having worked within the reagent, field services, and environmental consulting community his entire professional career.  His role as Senior Engineer at AST involves project assessment and design, field implementation oversight, and post project data analysis.  Mike is a graduate of Penn State University holding BS and MS degrees in Environmental Engineering.  He has previously worked for Vironex, Regenesis, and URS.
