Klozur® Used in Ex Situ Remediation of a Manufacturing Plant Drainage Lagoon

ORIN successfully treated a 5,920 cubic yard drainage lagoon with an oxidizing chemistry to reduce contaminant concentrations.

Type of Site

Manufacturing plant


Grand Rapids, Michigan

Contaminants Treated

1,1,1-trichlorethane, 1,1-dichlorethane, 1,4 dichlorobenzene, tetrachloroethane, cis 1,2 dichloroethene, methylene chloride trichlorofluoromethane


The chemistry was designed for the oxidation of chlorinated solvents (PCE, DCE, TCE and degradation products) in the lagoon at the site. Klozur® was applied to the soil via hand held applicators and mixed into the soil with an excavator.


Soil samples were analyzed and contaminant levels were below 60 mg/kg.
