A chemical facility produces, stores and distributes monovinylchloride, a raw material for the production of polyvinylchloride. Several soil and groundwater on-site investigations revealed contamination by aromatic, aliphatic and chlorinated volatile organic hydrocarbons. In anticipation of the site remediation required, laboratory tests have shown substrate injection to be a valid remediation option.
Enhanced groundwater modelling techniques were used to develop a tailored treatment that uses HGBcells for in situ treatment. EU LIFE+ funding was requested and granted for that part of the remediation involving HGBcells. In parallel with the LIFE+ funding file, RSK prepared a RAP, which offers a phased approach to the remediation in view of planning required and to spread the investment costs.
