Degradation in sandfilters and activated carbon filters

Start date: Jun 1st, 2015
Finish date: --

Test of stimulated biological degradation of chlorinated solvents and their degradation products in aerated sand filters and granular activated carbon (GAC) reactors. The purpose is to increase efficiency and lower GAC changout frequency of traditional groundwater treatment plants for pump-and-treat remediation.

There are two parallel projects that target 1) aerated sand filters (Lisbeth Hansen's project) and 2) GAC reactors (Line Fischer's project).

Project type: Remediation

Project target: Groundwater
