Thought Leader Webinar Series

Our Thought Leaders Webinar Series highlights the latest ideas for in situ remediation from our industry's leading thinkers. These webinars will connect you directly with these leaders so you can learn new techniques and strategies to boost your knowledge, benefit your bottom line, and serve your clients better. All webinars are taught by people who really know in situ remediation and are eager to share their knowledge with you. We do this to give back and help members of the groundwater remediation community earn PDHs that may not have an opportunity to attend a conference. The views and opinions expressed in the webinars are those of the presenter. They do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of RemediationSeminar.com, Tersus Environmental, LLC, or Tersus Environmental Limited.

Date and Time: Thu, Jan 28, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
Presenter:  Brent G. Pautler, Ph.D., Customer Service Coordinator, SiREM

Volatile fatty acids (VFAs) quantification in groundwater is used to assess electron donor status in bioremediation systems. When commonly used electron donors, such as lactate, emulsified vegetable oils (EVO) or alcohols, are fermented, VFAs are produced. Detection of VFAs confirms that electron donor fermentation is occurring and indirectly indicates that hydrogen generation, the ultimate electron donor used by dechlorinating bacteria, is likely occurring. This presentation will introduce the basic chemistry behind electron donor fermentation to VFAs, their relationship to dechlorinating bacteria and ultimately bioremediation performance. Whether on their own or paired with other advanced analytical and molecular monitoring methods, the benefits of VFAs for site management and post-injection monitoring should be incorporated into bioremediation system performance monitoring plans.
