Klozur® KP

Klozur® KP is an extended release in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) reagent based upon an environmental grade potassium persulfate.

The low solubility and extended release of Klozur KP can be utilized for a number of applications not traditionally thought of for chemical oxidation including permeable reactive barriers (PRBs), treatment of lower permeable soils, and contaminated groundwater plumes.

Overview

KEY BENEFITS
  • Powerful multi-radical attack
  • Can be applied as a solid or as part of a slurry mixture
  • Well suited toward applications such as permeable reactive barriers
  • Extended lifetime in the subsurface
EXAMPLE CONTAMINANTS
  • Chlorinated ethenes, ethanes and methanes
  • Petroleum hydrocarbons
  • Pesticides
  • Aqueous phase contaminants such as MTBE, vinyl chloride, BTEX, 1,4-dioxane
TECHNOLOGY: IN SITU CHEMICAL OXIDATION

In situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) is the introduction of an oxidant into the subsurface for the purpose of oxidizing contaminants in soil and groundwater. ISCO is ideal for the elimination of contaminant concentrations in source zones and hot spots.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS
  • Physical emplacement or construction
  • Soil blending
  • Hydraulic slurry injection
  • Pneumatic solid phase injection
