The particles act as a "delivery system" – placing fine-grained active ingredients through a water column or to appropriate target locations.
AquaBlok is a proven technology with nearly 100 full-scale applications performed over the past decade.
Key Remediation Applications and Benefits:
Thin Layer Capping – AquaBlok® will form a very low permeability isolation barrier over contaminated sediments in a layer thickness of 6-inches or less.
In-Situ Treatment – AquaGateTM provides a means to improve the performance and reduce costs of organoclay, activated carbon & other amendment materials in aquatic settings.
Reactive Capping – AquaBlok and AquaGate can be used in combination to provide a "Funnel & Gate" approach to addressing groundwater upwelling or gas transmission.
Dredge & Cap – Dredging residuals or residual contamination post-dredging can be addressed with either a sand/AquaGate approach for treatment or a sand/AquaBlok ("Blended Barrier") approach for isolation and greater erosion resistance. The same approach can be used for EMNR or EMNA (Enhanced Monitored Natural Attenuation).
Permeable Reactive Barriers (PRB) – AquaGate materials provide a lower cost means to obtain greater residence time (a thicker wall) when using a PBR approach.
