Aerobic Cometabolism of Chlorinated Solvents, Central New Jersey Case Study

CL-Out® was successfully used to remediate solvents in ground water at an operating industrial site in central New Jersey.  The the facility was a manufacturing and plating company with historical petroleum and solvent releases.

Chlorinated solvents were found in the ground water in two plumes covering a combined area of about one half acre.  The contaminants were a mix of chlorinated solvents including 1,1,1-TCA, 1,1-DCE and PCE in low concentrations.    The remediation goal was to reduce the mass of contamination in the ground water plume to prevent mitigate off-site risks.

After the CL-Out application, ground water concentrations in all monitoring wells decreased by more than 80%, which was sufficient to meet the remediation standards.  Click here to download a complete case study.
