Abstract

In this paper we present the remediation possibilities of a trichloroethylene contaminated site of a former metalworking plant in Hungary, where high TCE concentration (150 μg/L to 35.000 μg/L) was detected in the groundwater. Lab-scale experiments were performed to compare the potential bioremediation technology-alternatives eg.: enhanced biodegradation; pump & treat by UV irradiation (photodegradation); in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) applying different oxidants (KMnO4, Na2S2O8and H2O2). The lab-scale experiments showed in all cases reduction of the TCE-concentration of the water. Comparing the removal efficacy and concerning the time requirement ISCO was the most effective in laboratory studies.
