PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate
PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate
REGENESIS, a global leader in advanced technologies for contaminated site remediation, has announced PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate. This new environmental technology is a patented, sodium persulfate-based in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) reagent designed specifically for groundwater and soil remediation at contaminated sites, including brownfields.
Traditionally, sodium persulfate has been used and activated with the addition of a separate component such as heat, chelated metals, hydrogen peroxide, or a caustic base. These activation processes are inherently complex, costly and can pose certain health and safety risks. By design, PersulfOx simplifies the activation process and reduces on-site health and safety liability by offering environmental professionals a new, all-in-one reagent with a built-in catalyst. There is no hazardous activation process, and performance is equivalent to the best alternative persulfate treatments available today. In the field, the material is easily mixed with water and applied into the contaminated area using common subsurface injection techniques or soil mixing tools.
Additionally, the PersulfOx catalyst further increases the product’s effectiveness by providing a microscopic heterogeneous surface where the contaminant and oxidant can converge and oxidation reactions can occur repeatedly. This unique and highly efficient “surface-mediated oxidation” process, first introduced in 2007 with RegenOx, the company’s first ISCO technology, provides several contaminant-reducing benefits, including:
· Increased efficiency, as it brings oxidant and contaminant together, isolating the oxidation reaction from soil matrix effects,
· Direct chemical oxidation,
· The formation of sulfate-based free radicals which in turn oxidize the contaminant, and
· The formation of ancillary free radicals and other oxidizing species which destroy contaminants within the contaminated matrix.
Further details, including the PersulfOx brochure, product specifications, and access to technical bulletins, are available at the REGENESIS website.

Underground Septic Chambers
CULTEC Recharger and Contactor underground septic chambers offer a wastewater management alternative to concrete galleries and conventional pipe and stone systems, especially for sites with space constraints. The Recharger models are high-profile, high-capacity septic chambers. The Contactor models are lower profile, lower capacity chambers, typically used for septic installations with depth restrictions or where larger units may not be approved by the local authority. Their fully open bottoms and perforated sidewalls, along with the use of CULTEC Filter Fabric, offer greater contact with the primary leaching area, thereby delivering maximum infiltration capability. The chambers may reduce overall system size requirements by up to 50 percent when approved by the local authority.
The Fracking Kit
The Forston Labs Fracking Kit measures increased concentrations of barium ion, chloride ion, nickel ion, sulfate ion, bromide ion, potassium ion, turbidity and changes in acidity. The Kit consists of a LabNavigator (required for all measurements), a full-range heavy-duty pH Sensor, a Turbidity Sensor, a Conductivity Sensor and a clear-language informative user’s guide for the non-chemist. It works by simply connecting one or more of the sensors to the LabNavigator, ensuring the accuracy by using one of the included non-toxic standards, dipping the sensor into a sample of well water and pressing a button which stores the test results for future use. The digital readout on the LabNavigator shows the results in an instant.
Vapor-Tight Groundwater System
Abanaki Corporation' Vapor-Tight, Explosion Proof Groundwater Remediation System is designed to keep explosive vapors from being vented into the atmosphere. The oil skimming system consists of Abanaki's PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer equipped with explosion-proof electrical components, vapor-tight belt housing and a self-sealing, well-casing mounting clamp. Optimum removal rates are achieved using the patent-pending LFO Fuzzy2 belt made from a special oil-attracting material whose tiny hairs increase surface area and collect light hydrocarbons efficiently. Typical applications are remediating oil contamination from groundwater using existing monitoring or remediation wells. The oil skimmer wiper blades scrape oil from the belt and discharge it into an Oil Concentrator, a small gravity separator that removes any trace water from the skimmed oil. The waste oil flows out of the Concentrator into a transfer tank where a pump activated by float switches sends the oil to a customer-provided waste oil vessel.

The aerator is ideal for a wide variety of applications, including municipal, industrial, agricultural and disaster recovery. It is made of stainless steel, and carries a one-year warranty.
CNIguard Intrusion Detection System
CNIguard intrusion detection system is designed to protect access points in drinking water distribution systems against the threat of intentional contamination. The system utilizes a patented Smart Sensing Technology to detect tampering such as drilling, grinding and cutting; while virtually eliminating costly false alarms. The computerized system can distinguish between real threats and common occurrences such as heavy rain, hail, etc. and is rated for a maximum of one false alarm per year. CNIguard does not rely on human interpretation to determine if a threat is real.
Vadose Organic Substrate (VOS)
The Vadose Organic Substrate features bioremediate chlorinated solvents in the unsaturated soils. The technology allows the thixotropic gel to form a stable oil/water suspension that remains in situ after injection. This suspension provides an anaerobic environment in the vadose zone with the appropriate nutrients for the microbes to remediate recalcitrant compounds, such as chlorinated compounds.
BioBarrier Membrane BioReactor utilizes flat sheet membranes for a versatile design and robust process in wastewater recycling. Engineered in a small footprint and immersed directly in the aeration process, the BioBarrier has a high surface area of membrane material in a double plate configuration. Treated water moves through the pores to the space between the films; a pump then extracts the clean water to discharge into the environment. BioBarrier removes biological along with E. Coli and fecal coliform without add on disinfection.
