Treatability studies provide an opportunity to evaluate and optimize site-specific remediation performance variables in a controlled laboratory setting. SiREM technical experts have performed hundreds of treatability studies, for a wide variety of contaminant mixtures and remediation technologies, that demonstrate the strong correlation between laboratory treatability study observations and what can be achieved “in the field”.

Treatability Studies Save Time & Money and Increase Confidence

Treatability studies minimize risks associated with remedy selection, implementation, increase stakeholder confidence and lead to reduced remediation time frames and costs by:

  • Determining the best value remediation amendments
  • Performance optimization, which reduce remediation time frames and O&M costs
  • Reducing the likelihood of costly changes in project direction at field scale
  • Regulatory approvals not required to screen remedial options
