Treatment Train Targeting of Chlorinated Solvents at a Pharmaceutical Site
Project case study where an ex-situ sequential treatment train approach was adopted for targeting chlorinated solvents on an operational pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in challenging soil conditions. The treatment train involved aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation, chemical oxidation and stabilisation/solidification, enabling the reuse of almost 100% of the excavated materials, to form a flexible development platform to support future plant expansion.
