Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidants available and is twenty times more soluble in water than oxygen. The byproduct created from the breakdown of hydrocarbons by ozone is oxygen which creates more DO in the groundwater. Much like other injection technologies the key to success is delivery of the proper concentration and contact with the contaminated soils. The Ozone Injection Systems generate ozone on site and allow for easy adjustment of the ozone concentration and total volume. The systems have multiple injection ports to make certain to achieve contact with the contaminated soils. The systems are designed so they can easily be integrated into an existing or new SVE system.
Anaerobic Dechlorination Systems are designed to deliver substrates and nutrients to create the ideal site conditions for complete dechlorination of TCE, PCE, DCE and VC. The systems provide recirculation of the amended water throughout the site for maximum contact with the contaminated soils. The continuous operation allows for the correct mass delivery, and distribution to prevent biofouling and allow for complete dechlorination without stalling.
Aerobic Bioremediation Systems are designed to deliver high volumes of dissolved oxygen and hydrocarbon degrading bacteria and nutrients to treat hydrocarbon contaminated sites. The systems provide consistent recirculation of oxygen-rich, nutrient-rich water to provide the critical requirements needed for successful in situ bioremediation. This recirculation provides the appropriate oxygen and nutrient volumes required to degrade the contaminant mass and continuous movement of the amendments throughout the site to provide maximum contact with the contaminated soils. These units can be stand alone or fully integrated into an existing or new Multi Phase Extraction System or Pump and Treat System.
Mobile Injection Trailers are ideal for sites with low concentrations, residual “hot spots”, or site specific goals like product removal. The injection trailers can be custom built to meet your needs. A typical mobile trailer will include a generator for power supply, electric extraction pumps, water tank, mixing tank, discharge tank, discharge pump, bag filtration, carbon treatment, and extraction and injection manifolds. This design is great for the application of chemical oxidants (hydrogen peroxide, permanganate, etc.), surfactant recirculation, and biological amendments.
The introduction of biological amendments, oxygen, chemical oxidants, nutrients, and surfactants can be very effective in reducing or degrading contaminants in soil and groundwater. The key to success for any of these approaches is contact with the contaminated soils. Continuous Injection and Recirculation can overcome the inefficiency associated with typical “slug” injection approaches. MAE2 has several injection platforms designed to achieve the contact and treatment your site requires.
