BOC+ INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS WITHIN EXCAVATION ZONES
Biological Oxygen Compound + Plus™ (BOC+™)
In some cases, when injection of BOC+ slurry within the soil vadose zone is not practical, due to the fact, that the required amount of
BOC+ cannot be injected into the treatment zone, soil excavation and application method should be used. This method is normally used within the source zone of high contaminations, and its use can be applicable for those situations in which the owner does not want to remove soil from the site to a landfill, or the overall economics of the site remediation make it feasible to remediate soil within the source zone.
Having determined the amount of
BOC+ required for the remediation of the source zone, the maximum treatment effect is obtained when
BOC+ is mixed thoroughly within the vadose soil zone and the saturated zone. The amount of
BOC+ to be applied within the zone has been pre-calculated, and such application can be made with a slurry sprayer or
BOC+ dry mix added to the soil and thoroughly mixed within the soil/groundwater zone with the application of
water and super absorbent gels that are
times its weight in water
for a period of 4 to 5 years, thereby providing moisture for
microbial and enzymatic bioremediation.
Usually, dry powder is difficult to mix on windy days. On such days, the potential loss of the
BOC+ mix is made. Therefore, it is recommended that a water source or spray tank be on site to wet down the
BOC+ applications made before soil mixing. The method of mixing is usually accomplished with a backhoe of sufficient arm's length to reach the mix to the total depth of contamination. A skilled backhoe operator is capable of pulling the contaminated soil/groundwater from the bottom of the treatment zone to the top, thereby applying a
BOC+ slurry to the exposed soils.
