Catalyzed Peroxide Soil Pilot Study

Description:

The scale up of the catalyzed hydrogen peroxide treatment of petroleum contaminated soils was investigated with emphasis on the optimum catalyst, a risk-based treatment protocol, transport of reagents through the soil, and scale up requirements. The results showed that iron (III) sulfate was the most effective catalyst, that a risk based endpoint for total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) removal was significantly more cost effective, and that reagent requirements were independent of soil mass.
