This Innovative Technology Evaulation Report summarizes the results of the evaluation of the Electrochemical Remediation Technologies (ECRTs) process, developed by P2-Soil Remediation, Inc. (in partnership with Weiss Associates and Electro-Petroleum, Inc.). This evaluation was conducted between August 2002 and March 2003 in cooperation with the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology). The ECRTs demonstration consisted of an evaluation of ECRTs process to utilize a DC/AC current passed between an electrode pair (anode and cathode) in sediment in order to mineralize organic contaminants through an ElectroChemicalGeoOxid ation(ECGO)process, orcomplex,mobilize,and remove metal contaminants deposited at the electrodes through the Induced Complexation (IC) process. The demonstration of the ECRTs process was conducted at the Georgia Pacific, Inc. (G-P) Log Pond located along the Whatcom Waterway in Bellingham Bay, Bellingham, Washington. This demonstration was designed to assess and evaluate the ability of the ECRTs process to reduce concentrations of mercury, PAHs, and phenolic compounds.
