Remediation of contaminated sediment can be one of the most challenging environmental concerns. Contaminated sediment sites are often large and complex. Due to concerns over contaminant re-suspension, dewatering and final disposal, dredging may only be considered as only a component of the remedy. In-situ treatment and capping of contaminated sediment offers many benefits. Vadose Remediation Technologies can assist you in the design of active sediment cap and modeling the anticipated cap design life.
REACTIVE CORE MAT™ (RCM) is a permeable composite mat consisting of reactive material(s) encapsulated between non-woven polypropylene textiles. Through its innovative processing, RCM can combine two active materials, if required. RCM is available with a variety of active materials including ORGANOCLAY®, Apatite, and Granular Activated Carbon.
ORGANOCLAY is a proprietary filtration and adsorption media capable of adsorbing oil, grease, NAPL and dissolved low-soluble organic compounds. It may be used in a mat form (RCM) or applied in bulk sediment capping applications.
