In-Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO)

In Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) - Catalyzed Hydrogen Peroxide (CHP)

Catalyzed TersOx™ Accelerate, a modified Fenton’s reagent, is formulated to generate hydroxyl free radicals that act as the active oxidizing agent.  This powerful and non-selective reaction has the ability to oxidize a wide variety of organic contaminants into non-regulated compounds, yet it is extremely stable to be blended as one product for subsurface injection, aboveground for safety, for long-lasting effects below ground, and to allow contact where needed.

Catalyzed TersOx™ Accelerate offers the best of both worlds, potency and stability.  The basic reaction in the process is:

Catalyzed TersOx™ Accelerate + Organic Contaminant  ➜  Carbon Dioxide + Water

The hydroxyl free radical is an extremely powerful oxidizer against organic contaminants.  Residual TersOx™ Accelerate rapidly decomposes to water and oxygen in the subsurface environment.
