A Novel Bio Electrochemical Technology for Enhanced In Situ Degradation and Mass Removal of Contaminants

Major challenges to contaminant mass removal remediation methods is the slow back diffusion of contaminants from lower permeability soils into groundwater in the subsurface, and low permeable matrix that prohibits delivery of remedial amendments.  As a result, the operational times of many existing mass removal-based remedial systems to achieve site closure have been estimated to be several decades or even longer. Bio-electrochemical redox enhancement is a low-cost technology that can significantly enhance the back diffusion of contaminants such as chlorinated solvents and certain petroleum hydrocarbons.  Meanwhile, this technology also enhances both biological and abiotic destruction of contaminants. Case studies have demonstrated that the bio electrochemical technique significantly enhances contaminant desorption/back diffusion and in situ degradation of chlorinated and petroleum contaminants.
