The use of ozone has evolved from water treatment to soil and groundwater remediation. Ozone has been used to clean-up and treats a wide variety of potential soil and groundwater contaminants. Ozone is highly soluble in water and is one of the strongest and fastest acting oxidants commercially available for use. Ozone allows in-situ oxidation of contaminants that cannot be removed with any other technology using in-situ chemical oxidation while keeping costs reasonable, and shortening overall clean-up time when compared to other technologies.

Why use Oxidation Tech for your project:
Oxidation Tech has the experience necessary to integrate ozone if necessary AOP equipment into the remediation industry. Ozone is easy, however, the proper application of ozone in the challenging world of environmental remediation is not easy. Oxidation Tech is one of the few companies dedicated to providing ozone equipment, system integration, and comprehensive service for your project. We will provide quality ozone equipment, reliable systems, and service after the sale to ensure every project is a success.
Customer Case Studies
By-products from oxidation:
Common contaminants treated with ozone and the resulting by-products from oxidation are listed below:
-MTBE – CH3, OC(CH3)3 - Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Hydrogen Peroxide, Formate
-Benzene – C6H6 - Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Hydrogen Peroxide, Formate
-Toluene – C7H8 - Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Hydrogen Peroxide, Formate
-Xylene – C6H6(CH3)2 - Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Hydrogen Peroxide, Formate
-Ethyl Benzene – C6H5C2H5 - Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Hydrogen Peroxide, Formate
-All Hydrocarbons break down to Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Oxygen(O2), Hydrogen Peroxide(H2O2), and Formate(CHOO-)
-Trichloroethylene – C2HCl3 - Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen Peroxide(H2O2), Formate(CHOO-), and Chlorides (Cl-)
-Perchloroethylene – C2Cl4 - Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen Peroxide(H2O2), Formate(CHOO-), and Chlorides (Cl-)
-Chlorinated Solvents break down to Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen Peroxide(H2O2), Formate(CHOO-), and Chlorides (Cl-)
-Aliphatics (alkanes) - acetate, butyrate, formate, propionate
Monitoring for breakdown products of ozone reactions has shown virtually no evidence of the expected compounds. Chemical oxidation of the byproducts and bacterial populations enhanced by an abundance of oxygen and carbon sources appear responsible for this phenomenon.

Key Benefits to Using Ozone In Your Remediation Systems:
-Low capital equipment costs
-Ozone is produced on-site, eliminating the need to purchase or transport hazardous chemicals
-Minimal site disturbance during installation
-Low on-site profile
-Low operating costs
-In-situ destruction of targeted components
-Rapid decrease of contaminant mass and concentration in soil and water – impressive results may be seen in weeks
-No vapor control necessary – contaminants are destroyed rather than transferred from one phase to another
-Microbubbles act to extract VOCs from groundwater and soil pores which reduce soil oxidative demand
What can Oxidation Tech do for you:
-Build, design and supply ozone systems for current or future in-situ chemical oxidation projects
-Supply ozone equipment for Pump and Treat applications
-Provide system integration services for existing equipment
-Service or repair existing ozone equipment
-Lease or rent ozone equipment for pilot test or short-term projects
-Provide bench testing services for your sample soils or water
-Offer training on ozone equipment, and ozone applications

Ozone Remediation Systems for Groundwater Remediation.
Oxidation Technologies provides turnkey Ozone Remediation Systems custom-built for your specific project. We have extensive experience as a system integrator of remediation systems implementing ozone, AOP, and other technologies with necessary. We provide systems in the following configurations
Trailer Systems-Ozone Trailer systems house all equipment for safe and portable systems that are completely automated. Trailer systems can be provided using our custom steel trailers that are a step above the standard cargo trailer you have seen in the past.
Cabinet Systems-Cabinet systems can be provided as a stand-alone system, and a panel system built for environmentally protected areas. These systems are compact and cost-effective.
Modular Ozone System Kits-Modular ozone systems are provided as kit assemblies that include all the components necessary for a complete remediation system. These systems can be installed inside the customer's existing structure, trailer, cargo container, or shed.
Shed mounted Systems- Ozone systems can be housed in custom-built sheds that will perform well, and match the aesthetics of the area the system is placed in. Shed systems can be provided as turn-key solutions by Oxidation Tech or use the Modular Ozone System Kits.
Cargo Container Systems- Ozone systems installed in cargo containers can be shipped easily, even internationally. Large ozone systems can be provided and shipped without great expense. Very well protected and functional. Cargo Container systems can be provided as turn-key solutions by Oxidation Tech or use the Modular Ozone System Kits.
