ZVI Suspension for  In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR)

In Situ Chemical Reduction

ISCR combines both biological processes and ZVI particle driven abiotic pathways to chemically reduce persistent organic compounds such as chlorinated solvents, pesticides and energetics into harmless end products. ISCR is often used in conjunction with an electron donor substrate like Tersus’ EDS-ER™.  The incorporation of ZVI enhances chlorinated contaminant remediation by enabling various chemical reduction pathways and limits the formation of undesirable chlorinated contaminant breakdown products such as Cis-DCE and vinyl chloride.

Microscale ZVI Suspensions

TASK™ Sweep Efficiency Agent can be used to suspend microscale zero-valent iron (mZVI).  The chemistry allows shear-thinning properties that improve its capability to be adequately distributed in the subsurface. Tersus also provides an “activation” step after injection. When injecting ZVI in a biodegradeable polymer suspension, the ZVI reactions will not occur until the polymer degrades. We can supply an enzyme breaker designed for fluids having a pH of 6.0 or higher. The enzyme breaker is added to the chase water following the injection of the mZVI suspension.
