The IRT Advantage

The BIOX® process overcomes the limitations and risks associated with Modified Fenton’s Reactions by rapidly and safely destroying a wide variety of organic contaminants at near- neutral pH and at ambient groundwater temperatures.  Oxidizing agents are generated in-situ over an extended time to maximize and maintain contact with the contaminants.  The process does not generate significant heat or high pressures like the Modified Fenton’s Reaction processes used by other companies.  Unlike other In-Situ Chemical Oxidation companies that are in business to sell their product, IRT is a turnkey ISCO injection/bioremediation provider utilizing our own patented remediation formulation.  We have designed and optimized our system to cost-effectively achieve your remediation goals.

Benefits Compared to Other In-Situ Technologies:

  • Unites controlled in-situ chemical oxidation with enhanced bioremediation
  • Effective in treating both saturated and unsaturated media
  • Rapidly oxidizes contaminants at near neutral pH and ambient groundwater temperatures
  • Safer to use than more corrosive chemical oxidants
  • Promotes accelerated biodegradation
  • Suitable for treating tank pits, utility corridors or under buildings
  • Does not produce vinyl chloride when remediating chlorinated compounds
  • Effective at high contaminant concentration sites
  • Locates “hot spots” and allows fine-tuning of injection points
  • Oxidizes mixed plumes (Chlorinated compounds and hydrocarbons)
  • Destroys recalcitrant biorefractory organics

Benefits compared to conventional remediation technologies such as dig and haul or pump and treat include:

  • Contaminants are destroyed, not transferred elsewhere
  • Elimination of liability associated with landfill disposal
  • Eliminates the need for engineered barriers or institutional controls in certain cases
  • Minimal to no disruption of day-to-day facility operation
  • No space requirement for housing a long-term treatment system
  • No long-term monitoring program required
  • No discharge permits or discharge sampling required
  • Significant cost savings
