Abstract

Geochemical modeling combined with groundwater flow modeling was used to simulate the remediation impact during a pilot study in which arsenic from a contaminated military site was immobilized in-situ. Organically-bound and inorganic arsenic species were considered as a hypothetical species and the hypothetical adsorption parameter was calibrated accordingly. Subsequently, a sensitivity analysis showed that the process engineering can be optimized. Additionally, hypothetical scenarios showed that the technology can be transferred to other arsenic contaminations and that the success of the remediation technique can be evaluated.
