The article discusses the implications of in-situ injection technologies for hydrocarbon remendation in the U.S. According to the author, the technology utilizes chemical or biological based injections using a direct-push rig wherein a complete remediation process is achieved within two weeks. In addition, the author notes a thorough site concept model is necessary to optimize the remediation process and promote effective abiotic chemical reactions. It also offers information on the different chemical and biological injectates which includes chemical oxidation, reductive dechlorination, biostimulation and bioaugmentation along with its advantages, benefits and components.
