Global Remediation Technologies

On June 11th, Global Remediation Technologies (GRT), Somat Engineering and Dakota Technologies conducted a Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF) pilot study at Riverside Park in Detroit, a SWQF/Prop 2 funded site. The intent of the pilot study was to evaluate two LIF methods – UVOST and TarGOST. UVOST is utilized for delineating petroleum NAPL including gasoline, diesel, crude oil, kerosene, etc. TarGOST is utilized for delineating non-aqueous-phase liquids found at Manufactured Gas Plants (MGP) and creosote sites. Due to the variety of potential contaminates present at Riverside Park, a pilot study is being conducted to determine the best LIF method for a full-scale study.
