In-Situ Remediation of Hydrocarbons in E&P Pits / Waste Pits
 
Soil, sediment and surface water contaminated with hydrocarbons associated with oil and gas exploration continues to pose a difficult and expensive problem for oilfield Clients. Maxum is presently conducting research in our in-house laboratory to develop a unique and more feasible technology for the in-situ remediation of hydrocarbons in E&P or waste pits.  The method being studied involves a novel in-situ oxidation and aeration process.  The knowledge gained during this research project will also be used to design remedial techniques for contaminates in coastal environments. This promises to be a valuable asset for our Clients, and will eliminate future liabilities from off-site disposal of waste material. Stay tuned to our website for future updates on this promising technology. 
 
 
Remediation of Oil in Coastal Environment

Surface water and marshland impacted from oil spills continues to pose an environmental threat along the Gulf of Mexico coast. Maxum is presently conducting research to develop the most feasible technologies for remediation of petroleum in coastal environments. One method being designed is phytoremediation using a floating "phyto-island" or "phyto-barrier" accompanied with a novel water aeration/evaporation technology. The knowledge gained during this research project will be used to remediate petroleum and metal compounds found in crude or refined oil. This promises to be a valuable asset for governmental agencies and Clients interested in coastal remediation and restoration. Stay tuned to our website for future updates on this promising technology.
