Emerging Contaminants - Part 1

2.0 PDHs 

Many of the chemicals that we use in our homes (such as medicines, hygiene products, and their chemical additives) are present in the environment and they create contamination at wastewater treatment plants, runoff from agricultural and urban land surfaces, and in septic systems. These contaminants are often referred to as “emerging contaminants” and they’re gaining closer attention from the environmental community over concerns about their potential toxicity and adverse effects.
As governmental agencies gain awareness, more research and risk assessments may indicate more action be taken to monitor their presence, particularly in public water systems. This EnviroClass will be taught by Matt Geary and Kent Armstrong on some of the approaches to treating these emerging contaminants.

TerraStryke Products LLC develop and distribute biostimultion additives proven to enhance the performance of native microbial populations to destroy soil, groundwater and smear zone contaminants.  Each product leverages site biogeochemical conditions to organically create a sustainable treatment zone; and in doing so, naturally (without surfactant introduction) expedite the solubilization of residual source mass, increase contaminant bioavailability to allow for superior rates of contaminant destruction/biotransformation.

We work with you to establish Green remediation strategies with only one goal - assist you and your client to develope remediation strategies that work, are cost-effective and sustainable. Together we can establish cost-effective remediation strategies that meet Client/Owner and Regulator objectives while realizing superior performance, greater margins, and lower overall project costs.

TerraStryke biostimulation additive ERDenhanced effects the natural remediation of chlorinated volatile organic compound (cVOC) typically realizing >99% reductions in cVOC constituents and extended effect-residency times of >7-10years after a single injection program.

With regards to petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) contaminants, our product TPHenhanced maximizes biotic contaminant destruction while maintaining anaerobic conditions; eliminating above ground support equipment, nuisance noise/emissions, and energy costs while all the time maximizing smear zone solubilization and contaminant destruction to attain long-term compliance .

We get the rebound out up-front!

Our products are easily suitable for all deployment methods associated with in-situ and ex-situ remediation products. Lets work together to effectively minimize the impact of remediation while maximizing the solution.
