Science Café: Surfactant-enhanced Permanganate Oxidation for Pool-dominated TCE Sources in Heterogeneous Porous Media by Dr. Akyol

Tuesday, January 18, 2022

Dr. Akyol from the Kocaeli University in Turkey will discuss Contamination of groundwaters by chlorinated solvents such as trichloroethylene (TCE) is a widespread problem around the world that causes serious threat for human health. Chlorinated solvents enter the subsurface as dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL) and accumulate in aquifers where the DNAPL is most likely to pool. These pools become a long-term source zone for groundwater contamination. Remediation of DNAPL source zones is crucial for protecting aquifer systems and groundwater potential. Remediation techniques used to remove chlorinated solvents from the subsurface environment include combining chemical oxidation (ISCO) and surfactant enhanced aquifer remediation (SEAR).
