SWANTON, Ohio (PRWEB) September 23, 2020
Sediment Solutions, LLC and AquaBlok, Ltd, manufacturers of SediMite™ and AquaGate+PAC™, are pleased to move forward in a cooperative agreement to provide scientifically viable remedies using activated carbon (AC) to remediate sediments contaminated with PCBs, dioxins, pesticides, PAHs and other hydrophobic chemicals. The companies’ products can be used to form a reactive layer beneath a cap, as part of a reactive cap, or for in-situ treatment of the biologically active zone of surface sediments. The products can also be tailored to a broad range of environmental conditions and water depths.
Because SediMite and AquaGate+PAC deliver smaller-sized AC, treatment effectiveness is substantially increased for equivalent amounts of AC compared to AC delivered in a granular AC (GAC) form. This enables cost-effective solutions and provides communities and responsible parties with increased confidence in treatment efficacy when using AC.
The cooperation will enable its customers to maximize the benefits of working with both firms. Together, the two companies bring industry experience, product versatility, and a depth of technical expertise and leadership in the design and implementation of in-situ remediation with activated carbon. The two companies are also collaborating for Battelle Sediment Conference 2021 short course presentation on “Application of Activated carbon to Sediment Remediation: Design to installation to Monitoring Reactive Capping and In-Situ Treatment.”
About Sediment Solutions LLC.
Sediment Solutions LLC. manufactures SediMite which is a low-impact system for delivering treatment materials to sediment for in-situ remediation. SediMite is an agglomerate comprised of a treatment agent (typically activated carbon), a weighting agent (to enable it to sink and resist resuspension), and an inert binder. Sediment Solutions has a long track record of providing in-situ treatment solutions for sediments and provides clients our extensive expertise in the use of activated carbon for in-situ sediment remediation.
