Important Project Details

Project: A xylene-rich LNAPL site in New York State was treated in approximately one year  using thermally enhanced bioremediation. The site had limited oxygen and relatively tight soils but the COCs were successfully aerobically degraded by gently heating to ~35°C.

Statement: This project demonstrated the efficacy and sustainability of low temperature thermal remediation using thermal conduction heating to remediate petroleum LNAPL and associated contaminants by thermally enhancing natural aerobic biodegradation mechanisms.
