PetroFix Direct Push Injection Planning

Please follow the specific handling, injection tips, and field distribution verification steps recommended. Examples include having long, multi-port injection tips and budgeting a few hours for Day 1 field distribution observation and adjustments. Please review:

In addition to best practices addressed in the “Pre-Application” planning resources, it is recommended you review the available application instructions. Some practitioners opt for a clear water post-injection flush at the end of their injection activities.

Please note, PetroFix takes up to a few months to fully attach to soils. If PetroFix is >100 mg/L in concentration (difficult to see through a 40 ml VOA), it is recommended groundwater not be sampled. Each PetroFix shipment comes with one (1) a colorimetric field test kit taped to the top of a tote or drum to help assess field concentrations. For additional information, please review the “Groundwater Sampling Guidance Document”.

PetroFix Well Injection Planning

When storing the PetroFix material prior to application, it is important to prevent it from freezing or from prolonged exposure to temperatures above 95°F.

The key to a successful well application is to have properly screened wells where the screen is confined across your treatment zones only. We recommend you use a water tight injection attachment to the top of your well and apply PetroFix under low pressure (commonly 20-30 psi). Optimally, you can construct your monitoring wells with a male NPT thread so receive a female threaded injection hose adapter. If you are using existing injection wells you can use ratchet straps that prevents gluing any attachments fittings to a well. Please consult with your injection contractor for their recommended method to inject into your monitoring well(s). Flushing by gravity feed into wells is not recommended. When complete some practitioners opt for a clear water post-injection flush at the end of their injection activities. If your site has a high number of wells we recommend that you install a single well and do a pilot injection prior to full-scale implementation to verify the ability to inject PetroFix at the specified volumes.

Please note, PetroFix takes up to a few months to fully attach to soils. If PetroFix is >100 mg/L in concentration (difficult to see through a 40 ml VOA), it is recommended groundwater not be sampled. Each PetroFix shipment comes with one (1) a colorimetric field test kit taped to the top of a tote or drum to help assess field concentrations. For additional information, please review the “Groundwater Sampling Guidance Document”.

PetroFix Excavation Planning Document

When storing the PetroFix material prior to application, it is important to prevent it from freezing or from prolonged exposure to temperatures above 95°F.

In most cases, PetroFix is spray applied to the base of an excavation following soil removal. Prior to spray-applying the material, PetroFix should be diluted with water. Determine the amount of dilution based on the ability to safely spray and fully coat the base and sidewalls of the excavation. Larger excavations tend to require more dilution water (2:1 dilution or higher) for the spray “reach” into the excavation. A suggested dilution is provided on your output page, but modify as needed.

PetroFix material can reach nearby wells outside of the application area (usually a few feet away) following injection or into newly installed wells in your excavation location. Please note, PetroFix can take up to a few months to fully attach to soils. If PetroFix is observed in wells >100mg/L in concentration, it is recommended groundwater not be sampled (difficult to see through a 40 ml VOA). Each PetroFix shipment comes with one (1) colorimetric field test kit taped to the top of the tote or drum to help assess field concentrations. For more information, please review the “Groundwater Sampling Guidance Document”.

Cleanup Goals Achieved at Formerly Used Defense Site

This case study reviews a former Naval Auxiliary Air Station located in the Outer Banks region of North Carolina. After a thorough evaluation of viable remedies for petroleum contamination, the project team opted for an in-situ injection of PetroFix® Remediation Fluid to remediate the contaminants through a combination of sorption and bioremediation by adding electron acceptors. Learn more by reading the case study.

To learn more about remediation solutions for your project, visit us at booth 523; attend our platforms where we’ll be presenting and chairing sessions; and say hello to our poster presenters.

Spotlight on Support: Tyler Harris

The diverse range of products and solutions within the environmental remediation industry demand a level of support that includes access to professionals with a keen focus and hands-on experience. Enter Tyler Harris, PetroFix Design Specialist for REGENESIS®. Harris joined REGENESIS 6 years ago and creates remedial designs for clients with petroleum hydrocarbon contaminated groundwater. Additionally, Tyler provides clients with a wide range of application techniques and recommendations for using PetroFix, a dual-function remedial amendment which removes hydrocarbons from the dissolved phase by adsorbing them on to activated carbon particles, and then stimulates hydrocarbon biodegradation by adding electron acceptors. Learn more about Tyler by reading his spotlight article.

Upcoming Webinar: Monica Young, Senior Project Manager at CGRS, Inc.

In this webinar we are pleased to have as a special guest speaker Monica Young, Senior Project Manager at CGRS, Inc. Her presentation will discuss a wide range of sites where CGRS has successfully applied PetroFix liquid carbon amendment to address petroleum hydrocarbon impacts. Application methods and results using direct push injection among other application approaches to reach Tier IV risk-based closure will be discussed. She will be joined by Todd Herrington, Global PetroFix Product Manager at REGENESIS, who will share how in-situ technologies were adapted for remedial solutions at these sites. This webinar starts on Wednesday, May 4th, 2022 at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern. 

Webinar Recording Now Available: Jack Shore

In the third and final webinar in the series ‘New Treatment Options for Petroleum Hydrocarbon Impacted Sites’, Jack Shore explains how PetroFix® is being used to pre-coat aggregate used in utility corridors and around Underground Storage Tanks (USTs). This creates underground activated carbon filters to reduce the impact of future losses, minimize mobilization and suppress the formation of vapors. This approach is widely applicable on petrol filling stations, pipelines and industrial sites. Learn more by accessing the webinar recording.
