Municipal park site cleanup after spill of transformer oil
In March 2006, acts of theft and vandalism in a municipal garden in Mandarituba resulted in the spillage of transformer oil in an area of around 2900 sq ft. COPEL, the utility company was held responsible for the cleanup and restoration of the contaminated soils. The company decided to use AgroRemed BR CTBA which was specially customized for applications in Brazil. The site was excavated and treated as biopile with AgroRemed BR CTBA. Measured TPH values and VOC’s after treatment were acceptable and the project is now closed. The studies showed that AgroRemed BR CTBA was effective in the ratio of almost 1 gallon per ton of soil contaminated with transformer soils. Click here for a more detailed report.
