• Remediation Technology Launched at Major International Remediation Conference
    New from REGENESIS, PlumeStop™ Colloidal Biomatrix is a black, silky liquid that is easily injected into the subsurface. There it disperses widely to rapidly capture and immobilise organic contaminants from groundwater, using only non-toxic ingredients and without impeding the flow of water.

Remediation Technology Launched at Major International Remediation Conference

REGENESIS, a global leader in advanced environmental remediation technologies, has announced the commercial launch of a fundamentally new and innovative remediation technology called PlumeStop Colloidal Biomatrix. As the name implies, it was developed to stop migrating groundwater contaminant plumes by rapidly reducing contaminant concentrations with a sorptive medium while also enhancing or accelerating microbial-driven biodegradation processes. PlumeStop is effective on a wide range of organic contaminants and provides the first-ever colloidal biomatrix platform, designed to eliminate rebound, stop matrix back-diffusion and meet stringent groundwater standards at contaminated sites. It can also be applied to protect sensitive environmental receptors such as streams, rivers, ponds or lakes and to prevent contaminant migration across property boundaries. 

REGENESIS launched PlumeStop at an exclusive brunch event held in conjunction with the Battelle-sponsored Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds, which began today in Monterey, California. REGENESIS is also a leading co-sponsor of the industry-specific conference, which is typically attended by nearly 1,500 scientists, engineers, regulators and other environmental remediation professionals from around the world.

At the brunch event, titled “Innovating Performance Breakthroughs into Remediation Technologies,” REGENESIS’ President and CEO, Mr. Scott Wilson, gave a warm welcome to the audience and introduced Jeremy Birnstingl, Ph.D., Vice President of Environmental Technology at REGENESIS. Dr. Birnstingl spent his portion of the presentation speaking on the progression of PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate, an in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) technology which the company successfully brought to market in 2012. PersulfOx advanced the science of activated persulfate through the development of a persulfate-based ISCO product that is easy and safe to handle, contains industry-first, built-in activation and provides contaminant oxidation performance equivalent to the best alternative persulfate activation methods.

Immediately following Dr. Birnstingl, Ben Mork, Ph.D, Vice President of R&D at REGENESIS, took the stage to speak on PlumeStop. Dr. Mork unveiled the underpinnings of the new technology by explaining that its unique effectiveness is derived from the first-ever use of a highly dispersible, fast-acting, sorption-based technology which captures and concentrates dissolved-phase contaminants within its structure or matrix. Once groundwater contaminants are sorbed (held) onto the matrix, natural biodegradation (bio) processes proceed at an accelerated rate, forming a highly effective “biomatrix.” He also pointed out that Plumestop secures groundwater contaminant concentration reduction very rapidly (in days) and is effective on most organic groundwater contaminants including hydrocarbons, halogenated compounds and a wide variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs).
