Valued client wins 2014 ALGA Cleanup Project Excellence Award, using ‘C3 Technology’

 

The Australasian Land & Groundwater Association (ALGA) has recently awarded our valued client the 2014 ALGA Cleanup Project Excellence Award!

 

The winning project used ‘C3 Technology’, developed by GEO Inc., USA, for refrigerated condensation of VOCs in the treatment of off-gas from soil vapour extraction (SVE) systems. 

 

By seeking innovative, sustainable and efficient approaches to site remediation, Parsons Brinckerhoff and Huntsman Chemical Company Australia Pty Limited (HCCA) have taken a leading position in the remediation sector as the first adopters of ‘C3 Technology’ in Victoria.  Success of their project conducted at HCCA’s former chemical manufacturing facility, Brooklyn, is clearly demonstrated in the attached poster.

 

ERR also gratefully acknowledges support of the Victorian Government’s HazWaste Fund for the introduction of ‘C3 Technology’ to the local industry.

FEATURE PRODUCTS FROM XITECH, USA

Take a look at these great additions to our suite of remediation tools - from Xitech Intruments, USA, specialist manufacturer of groundwater and product recovery equipment.

 

AUTO ISOLATOR (AI 400) GROUNDWATER PUMP - New to Australia !

 FAQ: How does the AI 400 differ from traditional total fluids pumps?

  • No floats!   Piston action and a reliable in-built logic timer means you can control the recovery rate and drawdown water level to within a few inches from the bottom of the well.  This is not possible with the float style auto pumps. 
  • No contact between drive air and the recovered water or product.  Mineral precipitation is eliminated during recovery of water/product and exhaust air does not contain VOCs.

LET'S GET SMARTER WITH PRODUCT RECOVERY !

"Smart Skimmer" systems from Xitech come with a purpose designed above-ground controller, enabling operators to regulate individual pumping time and duration.  Better matching of product recovery with recharge rate is proven to significantly increase total recovery by keeping the pathways open for flow of product from the surrounding formation into the well.

Many variations in "Smart Skimmer" system design include vacuum enhanced skimming and tidal control.

EPA Victoria's HazWaste Fund Supports Refrigerated Condensation Unit

 

ERR is pleased to have successfully obtained funding from EPA Victoria's HazWaste Fund to import, and demonstrate to the Victorian market, one pilot scale C3 Refrigerated Condensation Unit (C3 RCU). C3 RCU combines Soil Vapour Extraction with proprietary off gas treatment technology that utilises cryogenic-cooling and compression processes. The technology allows the recovery of liquid phase contaminants, which may then either be reused or recycled.

 

The HazWaste Fund is designed to support industry to accelerate reductions in the volume and hazard of hazardous waste generated in Victoria, and to increase remediation of contaminated soils. See EPA Victoria site for more information.

 

The C3 RCU is designed to treat petrochemical or chlorinated hydrocarbons. Notable features:

  • No air dilution is required for vapour streams - cleanup time is dramatically reduced
  • Normally between 97-99.9% removal of VOCs (constituent dependant) and optional polishing of residual VOCs through GAC if required
  • Chlorinated applications do not require back end scrubbers
  • No equipment purchase is required. Rental terms are supported by minimum uptime guarantees

 

After 20 years of proven success in the USA, the C3 RCU technology is now available for use in Victoria for the first time!  Click here for more information and case studies on C3 RCU technology.
