In situ treatment of contamination in the environmental remediation market has emerged as one of the most sought after options on the road to site closure. Typically when in situ treatment options exist for a subject site, they are less invasive, limit human contact with contamination, and more cost effective. These options offer more implementation flexibility which may involve a wide array of treatment mechanisms ranging from biological, physical, chemical, thermal, electrical or a combination. In Situ Geochemical Stabilization (ISGS®) has been established as a viable treatment option for the stabilization of an array of Dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL’s), most notably polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s), chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOC’s) and creosotes. The ISGS technology is a field proven product that prevents the flux of DNAPL in a wide range of aquifer conditions while offering a more cost effective and proficient treatment option over conventional cement stabilization technologies. This remediation technology utilizes a permanganate-based solution customized based on site characteristics. This webinar will discuss the chemistry behind the technology, implementation specifics, and subject sites where ISGS was applied successfully.
Mr. Mariani, Project Manager at Innovative Environmental Technologies, Inc. (IET), has managed biologically and chemically based remediation projects since 2011. Mr. Mariani has participated in projects ranging in scope from large scale, such as a 300,000 cubic yard in situ geochemical stabilization remediation project in Florida, to small scale, such as a 2,000 cubic yard in situ chemical reduction injection program at a strip mall dry cleaner in New Jersey. In the last five years he has designed, implemented, and managed various biological and chemical remediation projects across the United States and Canada. He has experience in designing programs involving ISCR, ISCO, geochemical stabilization, biostimulation, bioaugmentation, permeable reactive barriers and surfactant technologies. Mr. Mariani holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering from North Carolina State University. He also belongs to various environmental professional organizations and attends environmental conferences and symposiums around the country.
Mr. Mariani has been integral in expanding the environmental drilling, in situ remediation and health and safety divisions of Innovative Environmental Technologies, Inc. Since its inception in 1998, IET has applied a variety of remedial technologies to over 1,000 sites across the country. Included in these projects are dry cleaning facilities in Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, New Jersey, New York, California, Connecticut and Pennsylvania; oil terminals, refineries and distribution facilities; active and closed chemical manufacturing facilities and landfills. Mr. Mariani and IET approach each site with field and technical experience necessary to recommend and implement the most appropriate remedial solution.
