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 either catalyzed hydrogen peroxide
solutions or other oxidant based reagents to the sub-surface.
A critical step in ensuring the success of an ISCO process
is selecting the appropriate chemical oxidant. GCI evaluates
each of the oxidant’s strengths and weaknesses as they apply
to the site and its relevant conditions, then chooses the
appropriate oxidant. Once an oxidant is chosen, GCI designs
the site-specific treatment program for our client.
programs utilized by GCI are comprised of one or a combination
of the following types:
This section describes the types of oxidants utilized by
GCI, the applicability of each type of oxidant on various
contaminants and lithologies, and the various steps taken
to design, implement, and complete a field treatment.
