Modeling GCW Efficiency

Thursday, 05 November 2009

Successful application of GCW technology requires that its zone of influence (ZOI) be known and predicted prior to installation. For each GCW System, a unique, site-specific hydraulic zone of influence will be established.

Groundwater Circulation Well Technology

Thursday, 05 November 2009
With the conventional "Pump & Treat" method, groundwater is normally extracted from one or several wells, cleaned above ground and disposed off to the either groundwater or surface water. Even when extraction and injection wells are combined, predominantly higher permeable areas are preferentially penetrated and more fine-grained structures are circumflowed. The bulk of contaminants are absorbed to the less permeable materials like fine-grained sands, silty or clayey layers. By diffusion, the contaminants are released out of these reservoirs very slowly. After a short period of time they effect a stagnation of the contamination discharge ("Tailing Effect").

FAQ's

DNAPL-Recovery

Tuesday, 29 July 2008

With a GCW it is possible to remove non-miscible liquids of higher density than water (DNAPL) from an aquifer. In order to remove dense non aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL) that have accumulated on the bottom of the aquifer, the GCW is operated in standard mode.  The DNAPL is  removed by means of a sensor-controlled, pneumatically-driven submersible pump. Thus it is made sure that just pure phase and no groundwater is extracted.

LNAPL-Recovery

Tuesday, 29 July 2008
With a GCW it is possible to remove non-miscible liquids of lower density than water (LNAPL) from an aquifer.  In order to remove light non aqueous liquids floating on the groundwater, the GCW is operated in a reverse mode.  The LNAPL is  removed by means of a sensor-controlled, pneumatically-driven submersible pump. Thus it is made sure that just pure phase and no groundwater is extracted.

Microbiologically enhanced GCW

Wednesday, 02 April 2008

By means of different techniques oxygen, gas mixtures but also nutrient solutions can be added to the GCW circulation water. Thus, more oxygen-rich and contaminant-reduced groundwater circulates through the aquifer and stimulates microbiological degradation respectively creates better bio-availability. Metabolites impeding the growth of autochthonic microorganisms or the CO2 produced by the biological decomposition can be transported to the well with the groundwater and can be selectively removed there.

Stacked GCW

Wednesday, 02 April 2008
The achievable sphere of influence of a GCW-System depends on the distance of the two active screen sections, the anisotropy of the aquifer, the groundwater flow velocity and the selected pumping rate. The bigger the circulation cell is, the longer a water molecule needs to pass through the cell.

Double cased screen

Wednesday, 02 April 2008
IEG uses an innovative type of Vacuum Vapor Extraction system using a specially engineered and patented Double-Cased Screen (DMF) in combination with a very low negative pressure blower. The double-cased screen consists of fine-grained filter granules sandwiched between two layers of metal sieve web with an open screened area of over 50%. The metal web is constructed such that an artificial well pack cannot significantly reduce the open screened area.

Soil flushing

Wednesday, 02 April 2008
Non-volatile contaminants in the unsaturated zone and in the groundwater fluctuation area can be removed by means of the soil flushing technique. Cleaned and possibly oxygen-enriched groundwater re-accesses the subsoil via drain pipes or vertical screen sections after passing a cleaning system (e.g. bio-reactor etc.).

Thermally enhanced soil air circulation (TESAC)

Wednesday, 02 April 2008
Soil air circular flow is employed to remediate soils polluted with volatile contaminants (e.g. CHC, BTEX, jet fuels), some semi-volatile contaminants and/or biodegradable substances. Due to the application of low negative pressure, TESAC systems can be implemented in soil, where the horizontally induced flow bypasses contaminants trapped in low-permeability layers.

GCW - Partial Extraction Technology

Monday, 19 February 2007
A GCW can also be operated in a way that a certain quantity of water passing through the well shaft is pumped-off or infiltrated into it. Extracting exactly the same amount of water as the upstream into the well, the groundwater downstream from the well is blocked.
