Case Studies

Daramend® Reagent

Daramend® treats soils containing chlorinated herbicides and pesticides, organic explosives and chlorinated VOCs (CVOCs) at many sites around the world. In our case studies, we show you how the Daramend® product family removes pollutants from soils through specific projects.

With a total treatment time of 3 months, the application of Daramend® Reagent reduced concentrations of PCE and TCE below the remedial standards at this site in the northwest USA.

Daramend® was applied first to a two-acre pilot project, and then to an additional 32 acres. The treatment successfully destroyed the concentrations of organochlorinated contaminants on time and on budget.

Daramend® Reagent was the selected technology at a site for the treatment of 350 tons of soil impacted by phenoxy-acid herbicides (2,4-D, and 2,4,5-T), and other chlorinated pesticides (DDT, DDD, and DDE).

With nine years of data Daramend® addressed long-term mitigation of vapor pathway concerns over exposed areas containing concentrations of dissolved VOCs.

A 2,600-ton in situ pilot was conducted at a site in Florida using Daramend® Reagent achieving remedial goals within 3 weeks.

This project was designed to validate Daramend® applications on chlorinated pesticide impacted soil in Ontario, Canada.

Daramend® Reagent was applied at pilot scale to approximately 100 tons of soil from the site, which was formerly used as a high explosives salvage and melt-out area from World War I through the 1920s.

Daramend® Reagent effectively reduced the concentrations of TNT, DNT and tetryl during two separate pilot-scale demonstrations on contaminated soil. Daramend® was also effectively applied during a full-scale (3,000 ton) demonstration of the technology at the same site on TNT impacted soil.

The Atlantic Division of the US Naval Facilities Engineering Command, in conjunction with the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station (WPNSTN) initiated the multi-batch, full-scale bioremediation of soil impacted with organic explosive compounds (OE) at the WPNSTN.

The army detected trinitrotoluene (TNT) and cyclomethylenetriamine (RDX) in soil near the TNT washout area (designated as SWMU-10), threatening the ground water for 2,500 people who depend on wells within 3 miles of the site.
