Terrane's remediation strategies have proven effective abating soil and groundwater contamination, and reducing concentration levels below the Mass DEP approved Reportable Concentrations. Sites we have successfully treated had been contaminated with diesel fuel, heating fuel oil, gasoline, Tetrachlorothene (PCE), and Trichloroethene (TCE).
The initial stages of any clean-up project require a detailed understanding of the site in question. Depending on the size site and the contaminant, Terrane performs certain pre-treatment procedures. In some instances, this may be limited to a treatability test, which is a qualitative test determining the activity level of the microbes in the presence of the contaminated media. In other cases, if warranted, a more detailed degradation study is performed prior to treatment. What is common among all types of sites demonstrating a successful pre-treatment test is that bioremediation successfully degrades the hydrocarbons in the field.
Most sites can be brought to within state and federal guidelines with minimum disruption to the facilities on the site. One manufacturing site in Massachusetts was biologically treated during its record breaking quarter for production and sales. Terrane worked during off-peak production and on weekends to facilitate the company's busy schedule. Also, the treatment method is not machinery or equipment intensive, so during the peak production hours any work performed by Terrane allows full manufacturing activities to proceed without interference.
Bioremediation techniques are indeed new and innovative -- but they are more than that. Please give serious consideration to Terrane Remediation, Inc's bioremediation techniques as the most economic, effective, and efficient solution to your hydrocarbon contaminant problems.
