RemTech 2018  – Recap!

The Remediation Technologies Symposium (RemTech) is an exciting annual conference hosted by the Environmental Services Association of Alberta (ESAA), bringing together over 600 environmental professionals not only from Alberta, but also from all over Canada and around the world. Over the course of three days, the conference provides environmental professionals with the opportunity to share […]

Reducing Sampling Bias Through Continuous Monitoring of Carbon Dioxide Efflux at NSZD Sites

Reducing Sampling Bias Through Continuous Monitoring of Carbon Dioxide Efflux at NSZD Sites

INTRODUCTION Recent research has shown that soil carbon dioxide (CO2) efflux can be used to quantify the rate of contaminant degradation – either natural or enhanced – occurring at petroleum hydrocarbon impacted sites. Point sampling programs with traditional flux chambers are currently the status quo for measuring carbon dioxide effluxes in the field, but this […]

Bringing Sustainability to Remediation

Bringing Sustainability to Remediation

Our continually evolving understanding of the extensive and complex ways in which human activities impact the natural environment has led to an increased desire and sense of responsibility to protect and restore contaminated land. Despite increased public awareness and concern surrounding treatment and protection of the environment, we have also begun to recognize the need […]

We’ve Got the Dirt on Electrokinetic Remediation!

We’ve Got the Dirt on Electrokinetic Remediation!

  Subsurface contaminants, like petroleum hydrocarbons, have been shown to biodegrade, or breakdown in place via naturally occurring microorganisms. However, the process of biodegradation is often limited by two primary factors: 1) the degree of physical contact between microorganisms and materials needed for contaminant biodegradation – also called contaminant bioavailability, and 2) the degree to […]

The eosFD: Not just for biogeosciences

The eosFD: Not just for biogeosciences

The eosFD has traditionally been used by ecology and climate change researchers trying to understand environmental gases. In recent years carbon dioxide (CO2) efflux- the movement of CO2 into and out of the soil – has emerged as a powerful tool for understanding and monitoring subsurface contamination by light non-aqueous phase liquids or LNAPL – […]
