Chlorinated Solvents

BTEX

  • Benzene
    -

    Benzene

    A colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell, it is a natural constituent of crude oil, an aromatic hydrocarbon, and one of the most elementary petrochemicals. The greatest use of benzene is as a building block for making plastics, rubber, resins and synthetic fabrics like nylon and polyester. Other uses include: as a solvent in printing, paints, dry cleaning, etc.

    Applicable Products
  • Toluene
    -

    Toluene

    An aromatic hydrocarbon and a constituent of crude oil and gasoline, widely used as a solvent. Solubility in water 0.47 g / L and a log Kow of 2.73. May form light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs). Little carcinogenic potential. MCL of 1 ppm.

    Applicable Products
  • Ethylbenzene
    -

    Ethylbenzene

    A highly flammable, colorless liquid with an odor similar to gasoline. The greatest use — more than 99 percent — of ethylbenzene is to make styrene, another organic liquid used as a building block for many plastics. It is also used as a solvent for coatings, and in the making of rubber and plastic wrap.

    Applicable Products
  • Xylenes
    -

    Xylenes

    An aromatic hydrocarbon consisting of a benzene ring with two methyl substituents, Xylenes are mainly produced as part of the BTX aromatics (benzene, toluene and xylenes) extracted from the product of catalytic reforming known as "reformate".

    Applicable Products

PAHs

Oxygenates

Petroleum Hydrocarbons

  • GRO (gasoline range organics)
    -

    GRO (gasoline range organics)

    A colorless liquid with characteristic odor that is found in petroleum and used as a fuel and a solvent; it reacts with strong oxidants, which generates fire and explosion hazard.

    Applicable Products
  • DRO (diesel range organics)
    -

    DRO (diesel range organics)

    An oily, colorless liquid, that is used as a solvent, in organic synthesis, as a distillation chaser, in jet fuel research, in manufacturing of paraffin products; and in the rubber industry, paper processing industry, and a component of gasoline, which may result in its release to the environment through waste streams.

    Applicable Products
  • ORO (oil range organics >C20 alkane)
    -

    ORO (oil range organics >C20 alkane)

    Colorless crystals or a white crystalline solid that is found in paraffin waxes used to form candles, and is a component of fuel oil and lubricating oil.

    Applicable Products
  • Creosote (coal tar)
    -

    Creosote (coal tar)

    The portion of chemical products obtained by the distillation of a tar that remains heavier than water. It is used as a wood preservative and contains a number of phenols, cresols, and other organic compounds.

    Applicable Products

Phenols

Chlorobenzenes

Haloalkanes

Pesticides & Herbicides

Miscellaneous

Energetics

Heavy Metals

  • Antimony
    -

    Antimony

    A lustrous gray metalloid, usually mined as a sulfide, that is found in discharge from petroleum refineries, fire retardants, ceramics, electronics and solder.

    Applicable Products
  • Mercury
    -

    Mercury

    A shiny silver-white metal, mercury is the only metallic element that is liquid under normal environmental conditions. The most toxic forms of mercury are its organic compounds, including dimethylmercury and methylmercury.

    Applicable Products
  • Arsenic
    -

    Arsenic

    A metalloid used mainly for strengthening alloys of copper and especially lead, that could be found as a result of erosion of natural deposits or runoff from orchards, glass and electronics production wastes.

    Applicable Products
  • Barium
    -

    Barium

    A soft silvery metallic alkaline earth metal that is found in discharge from drilling wastes and metal refineries, and from erosion of natural deposits.

    Applicable Products
  • Cadmium
    -

    Cadmium

    A heavy metal that is used in the smelting of iron, copper and lead ores and in pigments, batteries and metal plating. Exposure is primarily from burning of fossil fuels and incineration. It is listed as a possible carcinogen by the EPA (Group B1) and may lead to lung and kidney disease. The maximum contaminant level goal set by EPA for groundwater is 5 ppb.

    Applicable Products
  • Chromium
    -

    Chromium

    A steely-gray, lustrous, hard and brittle metal which takes a high polish, resists tarnishing, and has a high melting point, found in discharge from steel and pulp mills, and erosion of natural deposits.

    Applicable Products
  • Cobalt
    -

    Cobalt

    A hard, lustrous, silver-gray metal. The main source of the element is as a by-product of copper and nickel mining.

    Applicable Products
  • Copper
    -

    Copper

    A ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity, found in corrosion of household plumbing systems and erosion of natural deposits.

    Applicable Products
  • Lead
    -

    Lead

    A soft and malleable metal, which is regarded as a heavy metal and poor metal, that could be found due to corrosion of household plumbing systems or erosion of natural deposits.

    Applicable Products
  • Nickel
    -

    Nickel

    A transition metal that is hard and ductile, usually distributed evenly in soil but typically accumulates at the surface from deposition by industrial and agricultural activities.

    Applicable Products
  • Selenium
    -

    Selenium

    A nonmetal with properties that are intermediate between those of sulfur and tellurium, found in discharge from petroleum refineries and mines, and in erosion of natural deposits.

    Applicable Products
  • Zinc
    -

    Zinc

    A bluish-white, lustrous, diamagnetic metal, most commonly used as an anti-corrosion agent, and can be found at high levels in industrial or mining areas.
