soil and groundwater remediation

Hydrogen peroxide and persulfates

Ecological stability by soil remediation

As a sustainable and effective oxidation agent hydrogen peroxide can be used for the elimination of contaminants in groundwater and the in-situ bioremediation of the soil. Our high quality persulfates are suitable for proven chemical oxidation, chemical reduction, metal treatment and bioremediation technologies, enabling the rapid and cost-effective removal of a wide range of heavy metals and organic compounds.

Persulfates and peroxides for a cleaner soil

Industrial, agricultural and urban pollution have resulted in harmful soil contamination. Hydrogen peroxide is useful for mitigating these problems.

In the treatment of soils, hydrogen peroxide can be used in different ways. The combination of hydrogen peroxide and small amounts of iron salt catalysts from the soil itself or added separately, produces highly reactive hydroxyl radicals that degrade even very stable organic compounds (Fenton´s reaction). Oxidizing treatments with systems using ozone/hydrogen peroxide (O3/H2O2) or hydrogen peroxide/UV (H2O2/UV) are well adapted to the elimination of organic pollutants present in groundwater (aromatic compounds, chlorinated organics).

Furthermore, hydrogen peroxide can be used as a source of oxygen for in-situ bioremediation of the soil, in particular for the elimination of hydrocarbons.

Our portfolio of field-proven products and technologies covers soil and groundwater remediation for both in-situ and ex-situ applications. Chemical oxidation, chemical reduction, metal and bioremediation technologies can be used to remove a wide range of heavy metals and organic compounds quickly and cost-effectively. Globally, thousands of sites with impacted soils, sediments, groundwater and industrial process wastes have been sucessfully treated with Evonik persulfates for 20 years.
