ON DEMAND - Combining In Situ Chemical Oxidation with In Situ Soil Solidification for Organics – Conflicts and Resolutions

Situ Solidification (ISS) has become increasingly accepted for organic contaminants over the past 20 years, including LNAPL and DNAPL. However, practitioners still experience resistance to ISS as a remedial approach, in part due to perception that contaminant mass remains in place. This...

Analysis of Emerging Contaminants Using High Resolution Accurate Mass Spectrometry

“Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the...

Precursors, Novel and Ultrashort PFAS in Soils and Leachates

PFAS is a group of contaminants for which the picture is complex in terms of occurrence, composition, tools for risk assessment and remedial actions. In this work a comprehensive characterization of PFAS in five AFFF polluted soils was performed. This included known “regular” PFAS (34), a range of...
