Ozone Sparging & Ex-Situ Bioremediation - Hounslow
Ecologia won this contract for design and build remediation works in 2011and were able to offer a genuine turn key solution to the remediation of the site which was a former petrol filling station and garage/workshop.
The site was affected by petroleum contamination of the saturated zone (gravels) and groundwater as well as localised higher molecular weight hydrocarbons associated with a former soakaway that had been used for waste oil disposal.
Ecologia were able to offer a fixed price remediation scheme involving possession of the site, remediation works and sign off of the planning conditions pertaining to contamination.
The works involved the application of ozone into the groundwater via a sparge system and the excavation and ex-situ bioremediation of the old soakaway to deal with the oils in that part of the site.
The sparge system used an ozone generation unit designed and manufactured by Ecologia at our workshops in Kent together with and SVE system, to control fugitive emissions. The delivery of the ozone/air mixture performs several key functions including oxidation of hydrocarbons, volatilisation of hydrocarbons (and subsequent removal by the SVE system) and oxygenation of the groundwater to stimulate in-situ bioremediation.
The project was undertaken over a period of 6 months with the site being handed back to the client with planning consents agreed so that the construction phase could proceed. This process required a good level of interaction with the Local Authority and the Environment Agency and the firm fixed price nature of the contract and programme demonstrates our skill in this area as well as the remediation works itself.
