Can I use fracturing to simultaneously inject treatment amendments to facilitate in situ remediation?

Yes, we call the use of soil fracturing with simultaneous emplacement of treatment amendments the BIO FRAC™ process. Many chemical and biological amendments have been incorporated into our fracture slurry formulation and injected into contaminated soils. This usually requires that we carry out bench scale laboratory testing in order to determine the chemical compatibility and mixing ratios achievable for field fracturing applications. Examples of incorporating treatment additives to our fracture slurry on past projects include surfactants, nutrient solutions, zero valent iron, polyglucosamines, and solid phase peroxides and permanganates, among others. Treatment amendments can also be injected into the network of sand fractures any time after fracturing for subsequent re-inoculation of contaminated sites.
