Treatability Studies | Technology Evaluation Bench-Scale Treatability Testing for a 1,1,1-TCA/TCE Site

Project Highlights

  • The study results were used by the client to select the most appropriate remedy for field implementation
  • Study demonstrated that KB-1® Plus bioaugmentation promoted 1,1,1-TCA dechlorination and TCE dechlorination to ethene
  • Study demonstrated that alkaline-activated persulfate promoted the complete destruction of TCE and partial destruction of 1,1,1-TCA
