WHY USE OZONE FOR SOIL REMEDIATION?
Recently, ozone has been used to clean up sites containing a variety of soil contaminants. The reason for using ozone is to target those compounds that are not biodegradable, in addition, to the ones which are biodegradable over a long period of time. If dissolved, many hydrocarbon compounds can be biodegraded, but when attached to soil particles, these contaminants are not readily degraded. Furthermore, the network of water pipes and utility lines through a site makes it impossible to excavate, Ozone is easy to implement and does not require large soil movement. In fact, Ozone Ozone Soil Remediation shows a reduction of contaminants of 99%, which is quite remarkable.
KEY OZONE SANITATION BENEFITS FOR SOIL
- Low capital equipment costs
- Minimal site disturbance during installation
- Low operating costs. In addition, ozone offers In-situ destruction of targeted components
- The rapid decrease of contaminant mass and concentration in soil and water. In fact, impressive results may be seen in weeks
- Clean reaction. Hence, no hazardous by-product formation
- Microbubble size and easy introduction into the matrix spaces of the formation ensure maximum contact with the contaminant
- Microbubbles act to extract VOCs from groundwater and soil pores which reduces soil oxidative demand common to liquid oxidants
CONTAMINANTS DESTROYED BY OZONE
- Diesel Fuel
- Chlorinated Solvents
- Aliphatic & Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons
