In Situ Solidification / Stabilization of Residual Acid Tar, Presentation by David Collins @ Battelle

April 12, 2018

Technical Presentation by David Collins from the Battelle Conference on April 9, 2018. A case study describing the remediation effort at an area formerly used for acidic and hydrocarbon-based waste.

 

David Collins presents a case study describing the remediation effort at an area formerly used for acidic and hydrocarbon-based waste. On the site, residual acid tar (RAT) was characterized by low pH (often <3), density greater than water, increased liquid content with high sulfate concentrations, and a strong sulfur-based odor. The treatment objective was to limit transport of nickel in aqueous phase beyond the point of compliance.
