With initial guidance from the Colorado School of Mines, Environmental Science and Engineering Division, Remington has built a unique laboratory designed to test the effectiveness of any remedial material on soil and groundwater samples collected from a prospective site.

In conducting hundreds of tests we have developed protocol that minimizes spurious data and provides definitive answers for the determination of the most effective remedial compounds. We also run a financial model on the final data set to determine the most cost effective material.

After conducting hundreds of these tests, several trends have been detected that can help guide the final injection design, including using different remedial materials as the project advances. Mr. Taylor has presented some of these results to several consultants and at seminars and trade shows. Most recently, Mr. Taylor made a similar presentation at the 22nd Annual Tanks Conference in Boston, MA in October 2010.


With a combined 60 years of firsthand experience with the wide range of proven and developing remediation technologies, both as consultants and contractors, Remington has developed a unique insight into the advantages and disadvantages of each. A similar graph to the one below can be created for different portions of each site. Not only is every site unique, but different portions of a given site can vary widely in regards to contaminant mass, contaminant phase ratios and distribution. Knowing where the cost curve intersections are located for each site can dramatically improve results and decrease total cost.



We have also conducted extensive excavations with both soil removal and land farming to address highly impacted source areas. The excavated area is backfilled with permeable material in the water table with low permeability materials in the unsaturated zones.



Remington has spent a decade refining the injection of remedial materials, most notably, the injection of chemical oxidants for the remediation of petroleum and chlorinated solvents in soil and groundwater.
