BAM Injection – Chlorinated Solvents
ORIN successfully conducted two pilot tests to treat groundwater contaminated with chlorinated solvents using BAM, a pyrolized cellulosic material. BAM was mixed with water and injected through 4 and 6 DPT points encompassing MW-03 and MW-04 respectively. A total of 700 and 1,200 gallons of BAM solution was injected through the 4 and 6 points respectively. During injection activities, BAM was observed in both MW-03 and MW-04. Treatment extended from 10 feet below ground surface (ft bgs) to approximately 30 ft bgs and from 20 ft bgs to 30 ft bgs around MW-03 and MW-04 respectively.
