Our latest webinar
Remediation of Soils Contaminated with Chlorinated Pesticides, Chlorinated Solvents, and Organic Explosive Compounds
This webinar will provide an overview of Evonik’s reagents for in situ and ex situ remediation of soils impacted with a chlorinated organic compounds and organic explosives. Dr. Seech will present an overview on the DARAMEND® family of reagents including details on their composition, associated advantages, treatment chemistry, and applicability to destruction of various soil contaminants. He will also provide results from completed projects where DARAMEND® has been used to economically remediate soils at industrial, agricultural, and military sites in Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, El Salvador, Europe, and the United States. Among the chlorinated pesticides successfully treated are 2,4-D, 2,4,5-T, Aldrin, Heptachlor, Chlordane, Dieldrin, DDD, DDE, DDT, Lindane, Metolachlor, and Toxaphene. The organic explosive compounds successfully treated include TNT, DNT, amino-nitrotoluenes, RDX, HMX, Tetryl, and nitrocellulose. The full range of common chlorinated solvents including PCE, TCE, CT, and CF as well as their breakdown products have also been effectively treated. For applications where a reduction in leachability of the target compounds is required DARAMEND® Plus, which includes activated carbon, has proven to be effective. Performance data from several completed projects will be presented.
