Environmental remediation technology company Regenesis has launched a first-of-its-kind liquid activated carbon technology that the company says captures and biodegrades a range of contaminants, reducing time to regulatory closure.
PlumeStop Liquid Activated Carbon was developed to stop migrating groundwater contaminant plumes and designed to meet stringent groundwater standards at contaminated sites. Regenesis says the substrate reduces harmful chemicals and toxins, while enhancing or accelerating microbial-driven biodegradation processes.
PlumeStop, effective on a wide range of contaminants, protects human health from groundwater contaminants and prevents contaminant migration across property boundaries, the company says. This includes reducing chlorinated solvents at industrial dry cleaning sites as well as petroleum cleanup projects.
PlumeStop is composed of very fine particles of activated carbon (1-2µm) suspended in water through the use of unique organic polymer dispersion chemistry. Once in the subsurface, the material behaves as a colloidal biomatrix binding to the aquifer matrix, rapidly removing contaminants from groundwater and expediting permanent contaminant biodegradation.
