The subject site is located in Asse, Belgium and was used for fabrication and storage of glues and tar containing asphalt products. Due to a fire, a distillation unit of 30 tonnes and a filled storage tank of app. 40 m³ taroil were destroyed.

The Public Waste Agency of Flanders (OVAM) is responsible for the clean-up of the site. An excavation of the superficial DNAPL contamination has already been executed. However, the DNAPL of tar products on the clay-layer at a depth of 14 to 15 m bls still needs corrective action.

Commissioned by OVAM, a pilot for in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) with Fenton’s Reagens has been executed on the site. A reasonable reduction of the contaminant load (app. 90%) was obtained.

In order to make a well-founded BATNEEC-evaluation, the DNAPL is further characterized in detail, as the exact volume/proportion and contaminant load will determine the final remediation costs. This characterisation is obtained by using the Rapid Optical Screening Tool (ROST™) of Fugro. ROST™ detects aromatic hydrocarbons by means of a Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) technique.

  • 1. Localisation and remediation of aDNAPL-contamination of PAH’s at the former Asphaltco site Karel Van Nieuwenhove, Koen Meskens (Soresma nv), Frank Pels (HMVT), Koen Janssens (OVAM)
  • 2. Summary of presentation» Introduction › Site description › Characterization of the contamination › Site Development Plans › Already executed remediation › Remediation of the second DNAPL» Further characterization of the contamination: detection by ROST › Principle › Results: › Hydro geological build-up of the underground › Semi-quantitative determination of the contamination» Site remediation: Pilot test › Materials and methods › Results › Conclusions» Future perspectives
  • 3. INTRODUCTION Site description » Location: Belgium, Asse, Molenstraat 48-50 » History: › < 1900: horticulture › 1912-1920: production of glues › 1920-1986: fabrication of glues and tar containing asphalt products (Asphaltco) › 1985-1997: several companies and illegal dumps › 2005: demolition of the site » Calamity: fire › 1942 › Destruction of distillation unit of 30 tonnes and filled storage tank of app. 40m³ tar oil › Extinguished with foam containing tetrachloromethane
  • 4. INTRODUCTION Characterization of the contamination» Contamination in soil and groundwater maaiveld › PAH › Mineral oil 7m › Benzene pilot 12 -14 m › Phenols and cresols klei» DNAPL’s of tar lid van Asse 14 m › 7.0 m bgl (Lid Van Onderdijke) › 14.0 m bgl (Klei van Asse)
  • 5. Introduction Site Development Plans » Acquired by the local community » Fire department, youth house, sport tracks,... » Local depot for busses (De Lijn) » Large parking lot for the train station » OVAM will remediate the site
  • 6. Introduction Already executed remediation » Demolition of the site (2005) › Cost: 500.000 euro » Remediation of the dumping ground (2006) › Cost: 950.000 euro » Excavation contamination until 5.0-6.0 m bgl (2007) › Total cost excavation (removal and remediation of contaminated soil): 8.150.000 euro
  • 7. Introduction Remediation of the second DNAPL Remedial Action Plan originally said: » Combination of steam injection and Electrical Resistance Heating » Followed by In-situ Chemical Oxidation OVAM chose to directly perform a pilot study for ISCO
  • 8. Further characterization of thecontamination » Determination optimal location pilot test » More detailed delineation of the DNAPL zone By » Camera probing » ROST probing
  • 9. Further characterization of contamination Camera probing » The camera probe is inserted in the underground by means of regular probing equipment. » Simultaneously video-recordings are made from the underground. » The camera probe consists of: • Stainless steel tubing (Ø 44 mm, ca 1 m) • Saphire sight flow glass: 5 by 7 mm • Behind which a lamp, a mirror and a camera are placed. • Viewed 100 times enlarged on the monitor » Grain size and colour of the soil, oil particles, gasbubbles but also contamination like tar are visible tar

  • 11. Further characterization of contamination ROST probing » Principle: ROST = Rapid Optical Screening Tool
  • 12. Further characterization of contamination Principle (2)
  • 13. Further characterization of contamination Results: » Semi-quantitative determination of the contamination DNAPL
