Chemical treatment of contaminated soil and groundwater is usually aimed at either destroying contaminants or converting them to less environmentally damaging forms. In-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) involves injection of chemical oxidants and has the potential to effectively treat a wide range of organic contaminants. ISCO treatment tends to be more rapid than some other forms of treatment, such as in-situ bioremediation.
Chemical treatment is often used for the treatment of pumped groundwater or landfill leachate. Typically, these treatments are aimed at removing or immobilising contaminants, or changing the physical condition of the water.
Telluric Land Remediation has many years of experience in the use of chemical treatments for soil, groundwater and leachate. We will make a full assessment of your contamination problems and, where appropriate, design and implement a chemical treatment strategy fully optimised for your site.
Some of our previous chemical treatment projects had the following objectives:
- Chemical oxidation of organic contamination in soil, groundwater and landfill leachate
- Neutralisation of acid or alkaline effluents
- Removal of metallic species from wastewater by pH adjustment and settlement / flocculation
- Flocculation of suspended solids
