RPI’s CAT 100 Successfully Treats 1,4-Dioxane and CVOCs
CVOC contaminated sites that are also impacted by 1,4-dioxane are notoriously problematic and the best approaches mandate multiple remedies and exacerbated costs. RPI's CAT 100 technology has been shown to be effective on a wide range of contaminants spanning chlorinated solvents and non-halogenated aliphatic and aromatic compounds. However it had not been specifically tested under controlled conditions with 1,4-dioxane. As a first step, the standard CAT 100 Consortium was screened by an independant laboratory to look for specific strains capable of using 1,4-dioxane as a sole carbon source. Twelve different strains were proven able to grow on 1,4-dioxane. A bench test was next completed using contaminated groundwater from a site in New Jersey. Several chemistries were evaluated in the bench to identify optimal conditions, substrate, and nutrient to successfully degrade the CVOCs and 1,4-dioxane. This optimal chemistry will be pilot tested in hte fall of 2021.
