U.S. Division of Energy-Poland Initiative The mission of U.S. DOE and the Polish Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas (IETU) Katowice, Poland association is to build up the Risk Abatement Center for Eastern and Central Europe (RACE). IETU/RACE in participation with the U.S. group will exhibit the U.S. DOE handle for examination, assessment and remediation of a perilous waste site. 1995-7: Characterization and demo of biosparging/bioventing bioremediation of oil refinery squander tidal pond at the Czechowice Oil Refinery. An objective is to give an instrument to the exchange of those methods and advancements utilized as a part of the exhibition to Poland and different nations in the locale. The Initiative will accommodate the progression of EM innovations for use at other DOE offices and advance business improvement between U.S. also, Polish ecological firms.

OBJECTIVES Demonstrate Cost Effective Remediation of Czechowice Oil Refinery (COF) Lagoon by: Reducing the dangers connected with both the dirt and tidal pond water. (Hazard Assesment must decide a satisfactory level.) Remediate to a level which will bolster a green zone (i.e. Develop grass.) Train and Transfer Bioremediation innovation to the IETU, Poland, and RACE. Assess the innovation conveyed for adequacy and cost proficiency, eg. think about inactive versus dynamic air circulation. Exchange innovation gathered (secludes) to DOE locales.

Czechowice Oil Refinery The Silesian Refinery Works, known as the Czechowice Oil Refinery began in 1896 when the Schodnica refinery was assembled. A moment refinery was inherent 1902 by the Vacuum Oil Company which was claimed by the Socony Vacuum Oil Company Inc., New York USA. The principal refining unit was implicit 1931 by Foster Wheeler. The refinery was besieged by the Allies in 1943 and halfway reconstructed by the Germans amid the war. Clean architects and laborers completed the reclamation not long after the war and generation continued in 1946. Cresol was refined into oil with a limit of 25,000 tons/yr. Somewhere around 1959 and 1962 limit expanded to 500,000 tons/yr. Thallic and turpentine oils handling was included 1985. Today's free market items incorporate ethyl gas, motor oil , fuel oil, paraffins, pavements, and extraordinary oils.

Treatability Tests

Slide 10

Treatability Test Results Indigenous microorganisms that debase contaminants are available Microbes present can be fortified to corrupt contaminants at high rate (90% lessening of TPH in <21 days) - IETU and SRTC 36 Low pH (<3) life forms that corrupt contaminants have been confined (remarkable atributes make them patentable) High mud substance of a few soils demonstrates much higher incitement than low earth content soils Biodegradation of contaminants is associated with expanded CO 2 creation pH modification is not as essential for incitement as supplements (N&P) Local dolomite can be utilized to build pH Local wood chips can be utilized to give building specialist 36 disconnects of exceptional acidophilic PAH degraders experiencing ID and sub-atomic portrayal in FY98.

Expedited Site Characterization An assisted site portrayal of the Czechowice Oil Refinery squander tidal pond was performed by Ames Laboratories Quantitative lab investigations and also subjective field procedures, for example, Cone Penetrometer based brilliance tests, ground entering radar and flat well boring was utilized to give a physical and substance portrayal of the site. BTEX, PAH and Metals were chosen as target mixes in light of the working history of the refinery. IETU utilized the outcomes to deliver a natural hazard evaluation. The waste tidal ponds have a characteristic mud base and no pollutes have been discovered straightforwardly underneath the tidal pond. Be that as it may, BTEX has been found at more profound profundities which proposes a different source.

Slide 16

Risk Assessment Three Scenarios Postulated I - Adult, on location Future Construction/Remediation Dermal, inward breath & ingestion amid work at tidal ponds. II - Adult, Industrial (I.e. Refinery Worker) Dermal, inward breath & ingestion amid related work at tidal ponds. III - Adult, on location Groundwater, Future Irrigation Dermal, inward breath & ingestion from groundwater amid work or water system.

Operating Plan Initial frameworks tests (1 week). Foundation testing (2-3 weeks). Breath test (1 week). To begin with Operating Campaign (3 months) no supplement revisions (subject to introductory tests) air infusion nonstop, stream managed by temperature 40-50°C Subsequent Operating Campaigns (3 months every) season contrasts supplement changes beat air infusion higher and bring down stream rates for air infusion higher or bring down leachate distribution rates

Slide 23

Four Operating Campaigns 1. October 97 - January 98: start up and mellow air circulation 2. February 98 - April 98: serious air circulation 3. May 98 - June 98: air circulation, supplements 4. July 98 - September 98: air circulation, supplements, leachate distribution
