RES Case Studies

Remediation Equipment and Services (RES) has used ozone technology for soil and groundwater remediation for many years.  Shown below are images of actual site data obtained by RES.

What is Ozone?

Ozone, (O3), sometimes called "activated oxygen", contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms we normally breathe. Ozone is the second most powerful sterilant in the world and can be used to destroy bacteria, viruses and odors. Interestingly ozone occurs quite readily in nature, most often as a result of lightning strikes that occur during thunderstorms. In fact the "fresh, clean, spring rain" smell that we notice after a storm most often results from nature’s creation of ozone. However, we are probably most familiar with ozone from reading about the "ozone layer" that circles the planet above the earth’s atmosphere. Here ozone is created by the sun's ultra-violet rays. This serves to protect us from the ultra-violet radiation. 

 

Examples of actual site remediation

Results of ozone injection to remove MTBE, TBA, and BTEX

Results from periodic injections to treat "Hot" spots.  Monitoring wells were converted to temporary injection wells.

Ozone can be applied in many different applications such as:

  • Water & Waste Treatment
  • Ground Water Remediation
  • Vapor Control
  • Soil Remediation
