 RISEP LUNCHEON

 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2017

 

PEROXYCHEM 

KLOZUR® KP - EXTENDED RELEASE ISCO PERSULFATE REAGENT

 

RISEP will hold a technical luncheon from 12 Noon to 1:30 PM on Thursday, October 12th at Save the Bay, 100 Save The Bay Drive, Providence, RI.  The presentation will begin promptly at 12:30 PM.

Ravi Srirangam, Technical Manager for PeroxyChem will present their recently released Klozur® KP, environmental grade potassium persulfate and its applications in insitu remediation.

The solubility of Klozur KP is over a magnitude lower to that of Klozur SP sodium persulfate, giving it a uniquely different characteristic which is advantageous for several potential applications including permeable reactive barriers (PRBs) for ISCO. Klozur KP can also be emplaced near lower permeable materials to persist as contaminants back diffuse, as polishing step after Klozur SP applications for sites with low remedial goals, and in locations with regulatory limits on sodium. Potential applications and data illustrating the unique characteristics and advantages of Klozur KP will be discussed in this presentation.

Dr. Ravi Srirangam is the Technical Manager for PeroxyChem covering the North Eastern United States region.   With over 10 years of experience, Dr. Srirangam has designed and implemented numerous field applications and bench scale tests involving ISCO, in situ bioremediation, in situ chemical reduction, and metals/NAPL stabilization.  

Please join us for this interesting program and a delicious catered lunch.  We welcome you to sponsor this program, which supports RISEP's scholarship funds. Please contact Rick Carlone about sponsoring the event at the Gold, Silver or Bronze level.
