In the intricate world of environmental remediation, case studies stand as pillars of knowledge. They offer insights into real-world challenges and solutions, providing professionals with invaluable data to guide their decisions. Here's why these studies are indispensable:
Successful in situ remediation hinges on three pivotal phases: characterization, chemistry selection, and injection approach. While numerous case studies have been crafted by consultants, chemistry vendors, and injection contractors, this blog zeroes in on the latter two. Our aim? To elucidate what constitutes a robust case study, enabling effective evaluation of remediation strategies.
Often, remediation contractor case studies lack post-implementation results, focusing instead on project performance and challenges. These are invaluable for assessing a contractor's capabilities. However, when turnkey services are involved, encompassing characterization, chemistry selection, and injection approaches, the case study's depth becomes paramount. The Anatomy of a Defensible In Situ Remediation Case Study digs into the data gaps that exist in current industry case studies and aims to help environmental consultants navigate vendor reliance.
