Florida DEP Approves HypeAir®, HypeAir-EX®, and Six-Phase Chemical Oxidation
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Waste Management (Bureau of Petroleum Storage Division) has approved GES’ patented HypeAir®, HypeAir-EX®, and Six-Phase Chemical Oxidation as innovative technologies. GES is now listed on the FDEP website for approved technologies.
HypeAir® is a short-term in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) technique using hydrogen peroxide, ozone, oxygen, and air injection for aggressive remediation of contaminants in soil and groundwater. It has been used at over 300 sites to reduce project life-cycle duration and costs. Remediation via this cost-effective technique typically consists of three to six separate injection events, at an average duration of two to five days per event.
The HypeAir-EX® technology delivers ozone, hydrogen peroxide, oxygen, and air into the subsurface to create hydroxyl radicals for powerful, continuous, 24/7 ISCO. Hydroxyl radicals are among the most powerful oxidizers available, with a much greater oxidation potential than either ozone or hydrogen peroxide individually. The HypeAir-EX® technique is used for large plumes and full-scale operation, and typically operates continuously for a period of three to 24 months.
GES’ patented Six-Phase Chemical Oxidation technology is available as an enhanced option, using a sodium persulfate injection to form additional hydroxyl radicals and sulfate free radicals yielding six oxidizing species (ozone, hydrogen peroxide, oxygen, sodium persulfate, hydroxyl free radicals, and sulfate free radicals) for the rapid remediation of contaminants. A combination of gas and liquid injection aggressively distributes the oxidants under pressure throughout the impacted zone, maximizing the radius-of-influence at each Max-Ox injection point. GES owns the first patent in our industry that discusses hydrogen peroxide and persulfate injection chemistry for soil and groundwater remediation.
