Manufactured from stainless steel, the BTEX OZ 90 is a precision built processor which is fully controllable, and can be stripped for cleaning and re-assembled within minutes.
In contrast, the BTEX compounds bind to soil and migrate slowly.
Validacao da amostragem passiva de BTEX na atmosfera de Sao Paulo, Brasil.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, m,p-xylene and o-xylene, shortly called BTEX, are widely used in manufacturing industries, including printing and paint manufacturing units [4], and generally they are parts of the composition of the raw material.
But it says nothing about the person doing the sampling as he/she chokes on the BTEX fumes (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and total xylenes) evaporating from the sample or about the vapour losses during shipment to the laboratory because a few soil granules got trapped between the lid and the jar or about the vapour losses when the lab opens the jar to get their sample out.
Topics include molecular techniques of xenobiotic-degrading bacteria and their catabolic genes, genetic engineering of bacteria, commercial use of genetically modified organisms in bioremediation and phytoremediation, microbial surfactants and soil remediation, and remediation of heavy metals, oils and petroleum products, BTEX hydrocarbons, RDX and HMX, and a review of engineering processes.
Phytoremediation has been proposed as an efficient, low-cost remediation technique to restore areas contaminated with chlorinated solvents, BTEX compounds, phenols and PAHs [6-9].
Strategic Diagnostics entered a development and marketing agreement with the New York Gas Group to develop and market an on-site strip test for PCB and BTEX, regulated contaminants found in natural gas pipelines.
Rapid bacterial production and benzene turnover rates at wells, which are down-gradients of the other BTEX plume(s), suggest that the natural bacterial assemblage has the capacity to inhibit migration of the plume.
At this urban site, VeruTEK conducted S-ISCO injections to treat more than 50,000 pounds of coal tar contamination in the soil by destroying in-situ (in place underground) over 90% of the combined polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and BTEX compounds, including 95% of the naphthalene.
Notable among the list of VOCs are the BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethyl benzene and isomers of Xylene) compounds, which tend to be found ubiquitously at drill sites (Leusch and Bartlow 2010).
