SITUATIONAL SUMMARY

Chlorinated solvents were identified in the soil and groundwater at an industrial facility, including primary contaminant PCE at a maximum concentration of 260 μg/L. The treatment approach chosen consisted of in situ treatment using Klozur® Persulfate activated by natural iron in the soil.

RESULTS

Significant reductions were observed as early as 14 days post-injection and maintained beyond 12 days post-injection. 100% reduction in soil and groundwater contaminant mass was achieved.
