EHC® Liquid Application to Treat TCA and DCE Under a Building

The objective of the project was to demonstrate the efficacy of EHC® Liquid Injections for treatment of residual TCA and DCE contamination with limited access beneath the building and to reduce contaminant mass in the deeper saturated zone (20-25 ft bgs).

Contaminants Treated

TCA and DCE

The objective of the project was to demonstrate the efficacy of EHC® Liquid Injections for treatment of residual TCA and DCE contamination with limited access beneath the building and to reduce contaminant mass in the deeper saturated zone (20-25 ft bgs).
The amendments were successful at establishing long-lasting, highly-reducing conditions conducive to chemical and biological reduction of cVOCs.

    • Flux Reduction of TCE with use of an EHC® Liquid PRB

      The objective of this pilot test was to demonstrate flux reduction of TCE downgradient of an EHC® Liquid permeable reactive barrier (PRB). The flux calculations demonstrated a 73% reduction in 8 months. Advanced techniques such as real-time monitoring, microbial characterization and diagnostics and hi-res imaging were used to characterize and track remedial progress.

    • EHC® Liquid Pilot Application to Treat CVOCs at a Former Industrial Site

      Groundwater was is impacted with chlorinated solvents (primarily PCE, TCE and 1,2-DCE). A pilot test was first conducted in Nov 2011 by injecting EHC® Liquid reagent into the shallow aquifer. PCE and TCE concentrations were reduced to concentrations below the GWQS within 9 months following the pilot-scale treatment.

    • EHC® Liquid Treatment of PCE at a Dry Cleaner Site in Millbrae, California

      A relatively stagnant groundwater plume of PCE presents a vapor intrusion risk to the existing dry cleaning facility and adjacent businesses. Evidence of complete reductive dechlorination of PCE was observed over a relatively short time period and Dhc inoculation appears to have been successful.
