SITUATIONAL SUMMARY

Prior to treatment, benzene concentrations fluctuated from 13,000 to 600 ug/L, potentially due to seasonal effects. To treat the contaminated area, 24,030 lbs. of Klozur® CR was applied using direct push techniques to a 3,600 square foot area of 10 foot saturated thickness.

RESULTS

Calculations that compare baseline (10 mg/l) and treated (0.42 mg/l) benzene concentrations in groundwater at equilibrium with saturated soil show a Klozur® CR treatment efficiency of 96% or destruction of 10 kg of benzene.
