| Chemical Oxidation
In-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO)
offers an efficient and effective way to eliminate
organic contaminants in both saturated and unsaturated
environments. The Geo-Cleanse® Process, which patents
both the methodology and injection equipment, can
be utilized to distribute several different oxidants
to the subsurface.
The most frequently used oxidants for ISCO are:
- Fenton’s Reagent
GCI specializes in the use of Fenton’s reagent
for our treatment programs. Seventy-five percent
(75%) of all GCI’s treatment programs utilize Fenton’s
reagent. The remaining treatment programs use either
permanganate or persulfate.
GCI maintains an updated library of references
including reports, abstracts, and conference proceedings
on a variety of ISCO related topics to keep up-to-date
on the chemical oxidation industry.
