Abstract

The enhanced bioremediation was investigated at a site in Japan using hydrogen release compound (HRC) injection which was contaminated with chlorinated solvents accelerated natural biodegradation process at site. A bio-barrier was constructed using HRC injection to prevent contaminated groundwater from flowing outside the plant. High concentration of tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE) and cis-1,2-dichloroethylene (cis-1,2-DCE) were detected which indicated occurrence of dechlorination at this site. The HRC injection technology was effectively applied in Japanese soil and groundwater.
