The AEHS Foundation Selects InfraSUR Abstract for Platform Presentation March 2016

The AEHS Foundation advisory board has selected “Status of Commercialization – Biogeochemical Reductive Dehalogenation (BiRD) Groundwater Treatment Process: Bench, Pilot, and Full Scale” for platform presentation at the 26th Annual International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy, and Air to be held in San Diego, CA in March 2016.

Jim Studer Presents on Fractured Rock Hydraulic Testing and Analysis in Phoenix

The Fractured Rock Characterization and Remediation Team of Interstate Technology Regulatory Council (ITRC) met in Phoenix, Arizona over the last week of October 2015 to continue the work of preparing an internet-based technical and regulatory guidance document. Jim Studer, managing principal of InfraSUR and team member was given an opportunity to present “Hydraulic Testing of Fractured Rock: Why we do it and can we do it better?”

InfraSUR Supports Mars Rover Student Design Team

The Missouri University of Science & Technology (Missouri S&T) sent their Mars Rover Student Design Team, with their Rover named Horizon in tow, to the European Rover Challenge (ERC) held September this year 2015 in Podzamcze, Poland. As the only design team from the United States, the Missouri S&T team placed 10th out of 40 competitors. This was the first ERC competition for the school and they performed very well. InfraSUR is proud to have contributed to their crowd funding campaign that was ultimately funded at 128 percent. Great job Miners!

November 2014

InfraSUR LLC has joined the Industrial Affiliates Program of the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC). Jim Studer, managing principal of InfraSUR, joined the Fractured Rock Characterization and Remediation team to assist in advancing environmental solutions involving environmental restoration of subsurface environments. This is the second time around for Jim’s involvement with ITRC. In the mid-1990s Jim participated on the In Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) work team that produced the widely referenced Technical and Regulatory Guidance for In Situ Chemical Oxidation of Contaminated Soil and Groundwater (first and second editions).

InfraSUR LLC announces that the BiRDS (sm) technical support and licensing program has achieved an early business milestone by supporting multiple clients during feasibility studies, bench treatability studies, field pilot tests, and full scale applications involving Biogeochemical Reductive Dehalogenation and Metals Stabilization (BiRD or BiRDS). Site applications for groundwater remediation involve unconsolidated formations and bedrock systems. Material types include fluvial and glacio-fluvial depositional sequences, glacial till, saprolite/residuum, semi-arid basin fill sequences, and marine depositional sequences. Thus far, bedrock systems are comprised of limestone but all bedrock types are applicable. In most cases, clients are interested in capturing the lower cost profile and enhanced performance potential of BiRD by converting from or supplementing zero valent iron and/or enhanced anaerobic bioremediation approaches.

InfraSUR LLC with exclusive partner HydroResolutions LLC are commercializing the new integrated field test platform Subsurface Injection Field Testing through the InfraSUR SIFT (sm) technical services business line. InfraSUR and HydroResolutions are leaders in subsurface hydrogeologic and hydraulics characterization for waste management and remediation purposes. The new SIFT capability involves specialized hardware, software, human expertise, and protocols and is available to the engineering, environmental, and natural resources development community where state-of-the-art characterization of complex subsurface hydraulics and fluid flow is desired. The initial field stage involves conduct of the PneuSine process that involves propagation of frequency and amplitude modulated sinusoidal energy waves into the formation. The second stage that follows involves controlled emplacement of injectate with composition and volume dependent on the test goals and objectives. Predictive and inverse simulations are conducted using the leading numerical simulator nSIGHTS.

May 2014

The leading conference focused on environmental remediation will be held in Monterey, California during May 19-22, 2014.  Organized by Battelle, The Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds, provides timely access to the most advanced ideas and case histories as well as the professionals and research engineers and scientist behind them.  A number of Short Courses will be offered on Sunday and Wednesday during the conference.  InfraSUR’s Jim Studer will be one of the three instructors for the following short course on Wednesday:

Biogeochemical Reductive Dehalogenation and Metals Stabilization: Basic Science to Engineering Theory and Practice
Instructors:  James Studer (InfraSUR LLC), Elizabeth Butler (University of Oklahoma) and Lonnie Kennedy (Earth Science Services LLC)

Please see the December 15, 2103 version of Short Courses prepared by Battelle, for information on the courses, times, and fees.
