09 November 2019 - Remediation by multiphase extraction

In situ chemical oxidation stopped and the installation (ozone generator) and perozone injection system is removed.   All zones are remediated by multiphase extraction lowering groundwater till 3 m-bgl in the period november 2018 - november 2019.

08 November 2018 - Remediation by multiphase extraction and in-situ chemical oxidation

The loading zone at well P465 continued to be remediated by in-situ chemical oxidation using perozone.  At the other zones (excavation zone, small plume and large plume at the tank park), remediation using multiphase extraction is executed by lowering groundwater till 1.8 m-gl in the periode of December 2017 - November 2018

08 December 2017 - Multiphase extraction test

The Life project proved that in-situ chemical oxidation is very effective in migration zones but not in source zones of the VOPAK site. Therefore, a multi-phase extraction test in the zones was performed between 13 July and 8 December 2017 to evaluate this technique. Contaminant mass concentration in the extracted air diminished from 175 ppm to 22 ppm (using PID detector 10.6 eV).
