Bio-Electro-Chemical Technologies for Sustainable Remediation of Contaminants, and Micron-Scale Carbon Injections Used to Remediate Residual HydrocarbonsThis presentation will introduce a novel bio-electro-chemical (BEC) technique that can address the challenge of effective and sustainable cleanup of contaminants in tight geological formations such as clay and silts. BEC leverages the interactions of microbes and electron transfer, and the electrochemical reactions in such processes, to achieve degradation of a variety of contaminants, such as petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, and PFAS.
