Little Known Fact: PHCs & cVOCs Are Not The Only Contaminants You Can Detect In-Situ With HRSC Tooling

High-Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC) tooling, such as the MIP, LLMIP and Laser-Induced fluorescence (LIF) have been used countless times across Canada over the past ten years to delineate plumes of petroleum hydrocarbons (e.g. BTEX compounds, gasoline, diesel fuel, etc.) and

Activated Carbon: New to In-Situ Remediation

In the past couple of years in Canada, specially formulated activated carbon (AC) based remedial amendments have effectively contained and treated petroleum hydrocarbon and chlorinated solvent plumes. Three brief case studies are presented in this article showcasing the power of

Activated Carbon – What It Is and How It Works

  Charcoal is produced by heating wood or other organic materials in the absence of oxygen at temperatures above 300⁰C. Early methods consisted of constructing earthen kilns over stacked wood. The wood is partially burned to generate heat. Heating continues
