There are many approaches to contaminated site remediation and the treatment of impacted soil, ground water and air. Formerly an often long, arduous and costly process, conventional ex-situ remediation methods, such as excavation, pump-and-treat systems, etc., are being replaced by innovative in-situ treatment solutions. Endorsed by regulatory and science-based agencies, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency and Interstate Technology Regulatory Council, solutions such as in-situ remedial injection technologies are proving to be more strategic, efficient and cost-effective.
Penn Environmental & Remediation, Inc. (Penn E&R) is highly experienced in implementing these cutting-edge in-situ injection services aimed at destroying chlorinated and non-chlorinated contaminants. Our remediation engineers, scientists and technicians have taken the time to adapt to industry changes and diversify their expertise by learning the advanced science behind the following in-situ injection services:
In-Situ Chemical Oxidation – Involves the injection of specific chemicals into targeted locations in the subsurface. When the injected chemical and chlorinated solvent make contact, it produces a chemical reaction that destroys the contaminant, reducing toxicity to acceptable standards.
In-Situ Bio-Injection – Involves the injection of cultured microorganisms into the subsurface for the purpose of biodegrading soil and ground water contaminants. In addition to the injection of microbes, a substrate is injected to provide a nutrient source. The microbes feed on the amendment, oftentimes emulsified vegetable oil, and through their transpiration process destroy the contaminant.
Our industry experts have implemented these innovative in-situ remediation injection services at multiple project sites including the following:
