Speaker Presentation Highlight:

"Slow Release Oxidants: Use of RemOx SR+ Cylinders in Treatment for Chlorinated Solvents in Groundwater" 
Presented By: Grant Walsom, XCG

Historical industrial activities using solvents for metal degreasing as well as dry-cleaning operations have created many remediation challenges. Innovative and cost-effective methods for treatment of chlorinated VOCs (typically PCE, TCE, C-DCE, and vinyl chloride) in soil and groundwater continue to evolve with new products and applications.

Carus has developed a solid form of permanganate and persulphate encased in a paraffin wax that slowly releases the oxidants into the subsurface for a prolonged treatment of the chlorinated VOCs. The solid form is easy and safe to install, while the prolonged treatment ability provides the ability to continue to treat the VOCs long after installation.
XCG Consulting Limited has successfully employed the Carus RemOx SR+ product at four different sites in Ontario with varied geological settings. One of the sites was the first RemOx SR application in Canada.

This presentation will briefly describe the product and advantages of its use while exploring case studies and their successes through sharing site-specific data.
