Enhanced Aerobic Bioremediation


Listed below are our latest case studies within the project category, Enhanced Aerobic Bioremediation:


  • Remote Residence Leaked Petroleum Hydrocarbons

    At a remote residence, petroleum hydrocarbons leaked from a UST into the underlying groundwater and soil creating a health and ecology risk to the residents and local environment. Soil concentrations of PHCs included: BTEX (maximum concentration of 152 μg/g) F1 & F2 (maximum concentration of 7,000 μg/g) F3 & F4 (maximum concentration of 6,200 μg/g)

  • Operating Manufacturing Facility

    At an operating manufacturing facility, free phase petroleum hydrocarbons were discovered underneath the facility. Soil concentrations of PHCs included: BTEX (maximum concentration of 5 μg/g ) F1 & F2 (maximum concentration of 4,920 μg/g ) F3 & F4 (maximum concentration of 44,000 μg/g )

  • Rural Residence Heating Oil Storage Tank

    At a rural residence, petroleum hydrocarbons leaked from a heating oil storage tank into the underlying groundwater, rock and soil. The release created potential health and ecological risks for the residents and local environment. Soil concentrations included: PHC (maximum concentration of > 1,110 μg/g) Groundwater concentrations ranged up to: PHC (maximum concentration of > 64,200 μg/L)

  • Former Gas Station

    Vertex was retained to remediate a former gas station now developed as a commercial mall. Excavation was not an option due to the depth of the free phase and plume as well as the utilities and infrastructure on site. Groundwater concentrations of PHCs included: BTEX (maximum concentration of > 206,700 μg/L) F1 & F2 (maximum concentration of

  • Real Estate Transaction

    As part of a real estate transaction, our client was committed to remediating chlorinated ethane impacts within the groundwater to below the applicable Standards. The concentrations of the compounds of concern were: 1,1,1-TCA (maximum concentration of 11,000 μg/L) 1,1-DCA (maximum concentration of 1,100 μg/L)
