• ISCO de Mayo – Provectus Turns 5

    Over the past 5 years, Provectus has developed Provect-OX®, Provect-OX2™, Provect-“EBR®” and other ISCO technologies with a focus on improved safety, ease of use, permanence of performance (manages rebound) and expanded implementability (ISCO Permeable Reactive Barriers). These technologies are typically more cost-efficient and offer tangible technical benefits over conventional ISCO approaches. For example, base activation […]

  • New ISCO Technology, Ideal for PRB Applications

    Quiz: After reading this release I now know that the Best Available Technology for treating plume constituents such as 1,4-dioxane, MTBE, BTEX (and potentially PFAS) is: □ Transiently trap them on granular activated carbon, for eventual release at a later point in time. □ Temporarily stop the plume using smaller activated carbon pieces, for eventual release at a […]

  • Excavation & Reagent Placement for Rapid Remediation

    After collectively remediating over 1,500 contaminated sites globally, we have found that – where practical – one of the most effective remedial solutions continues to be traditional soil excavation with site-specific amendment placement within the excavated area or, ideally, amendment placement + soil mixing within the base of the excavation. The coupling of excavation with […]

  • AMR with EVO Independent Lab Study

    Independent Laboratory Assessment of Antimethanogenic Reagents (AMRs) Independent laboratory studies (Clemson University) assessed the dynamics of TCE dechlorination and methane generation as induced by multiple organic hydrogen donors (OHDs) at high concentration in the presence and absence of various AMRs. Changes in the amount of monitored constituents in headspace gasses collected from duplicate microcosms during […]
