Groundwater treatment plant for the purification of PFC and BTEX

on the former site of Tempelhof Airport

On the site of the "Old Port", in the central northern part of the former. From 2003 to 2018, groundwater contamination with BTEX was detected during investigations carried out at Tempelhof Airport. This is due to the handling of aviation gasoline (tank systems and tank farms) during the operating period of the "Old Port", from 1923–1945. In addition, MKW, PAH, LCKW, and PFT (perfluorinated surfactants) were detected at lower concentrations. PFT per-fluorinated surfactants (also PFC-perfluorinated compounds/chemicals) are available in concentrations of max. about 60 g/l contained in groundwater. The cause is the location of the renovation area "Old Port", downstream or by-stream of a former port. fire-fighting training grounds. PFCs have been used in extinguishing foams in fires of oil and fuel and are now largely banned.

Remediation of highly ferrous groundwater with volatile halogenated hydrocarbons (VHHs) contamination

Traktorenwerk Schönebeck

As part of a contaminated site survey in 1993/94, groundwater damage caused by volatile halogenated hydrocarbons (VHHs) was detected on the site, which has been used industrially for over 100 years. The polluted groundwater continues to contain very high iron and salt concentrations. At the end of 2019, Harbauer GmbH was awarded the contract for the remediation of contaminated sites and for the construction of groundwater remediation plant. You can find out more about the removal of vinyl chloride and other (VHHs) by means of desorption columns and catalytic oxidation in the following reference.

Construction and groundwater treatment during soil remediation

Lehrter Street in Berlin, Germany

In order to prevent a polluted outflow, the operation of a hydraulic safety device is required during soil remediation by means of large-bore bores. In order to comply with the discharge values for the direct discharge into the groundwater (re-infiltration), a groundwater purification plant from Harbauer was built for this purpose. For this purpose, two 20 m - deep safety wells are operated north and south of the rehabilitation area.

Chlorine gas and hall air extraction system due to aggressive hall air

Buchholz

Clarios Recycling GmbH is a manufacturer of accumulators and has its own recycling plant for the recovery of raw materials from batteries and accumulators. When lead-acid batteries are accepted and stored in the storage boxes, it happens that chlorine gas is produced. In addition, in the recycling process of batteries and accumulators, sulfuric acid comes out, as a result of which acidic vapors are formed. Installed sensors register the concentration of chlorine gas and if the limit value is exceeded, the staff has to leave the hall so far.

Thanks to the newly installed extraction system, the chlorine gas is now extracted quickly and effectively, so that it is no longer necessary to leave production Hall D. In addition, a significant improvement in the quality of the hall air is achieved with the extraction.

Biological in-situ groundwater remediation

former glass factory in Achern

In order to control the implementation of a biological in-situ groundwater remediation on the site of the former glass factory in Achern, a modular remediation plant was manufactured in two insulated ISO sea containers. There are 5 production wells and 14 infiltration wells at the rehabilitation site.

The principle of biological in-situ remediation is based on the stimulation of pollutant-degrading microorganisms in the groundwater. For this purpose, groundwater is removed in the polluted area, nutrients are added and the area re-infiltrated. With the help of frequency-controlled well pumps and magnetic-inductive flow meters, the individual delivery rates between 0.5 and 3 m3/h are automatically regulated. The maximum total conveying rate of the remediation plant is up to 15 m3/h.

Treatment of benzene and hydrogen sulfide contaminated exhaust air

Black Pump PS 7

Very strong-smelling exhaust air contaminated with benzene and hydrogen sulfide is sucked out of a sewage shaft on the site of the power plant Schwarze Pumpe in Sachsen, Germany and is then purified via an activated carbon filter stage.

The concept of exhaust air purification provides that the air is purified in a two-stage filter system, consisting of working and police filters to concentrations below the permissible limits below the german regulatory “Technische Anleitung zu Luftreinhaltung (TA-Luft).

Groundwater treatment plant for the purification of pesticides in a drinking water protection area

Berlin Wuhlheide

Since 2000, the pesticides mecoprop and dichlorprop have been detected in groundwater in the area of the Brunnengalerie Ost at the site of the Wuhlheide waterworks. A groundwater treatment plant was built and put into operation in 2002 to avert danger. Due to the construction of new defensive wells (Mec 1-3) and the resulting changed hydraulic conditions as well as the increased pollutant concentrations, Harbauer GmbH received the order for the construction of a new groundwater treatment plant at the end of 2017.

In order to protect the incoming flood, contaminated groundwater must be pumped out of three wells and treated on site in the groundwater treatment plant.

Exhaust air purification system against high hydrogen sulfide values

Schönerlinde

Three sand traps are operated at the Schönerlinde sewage treatment plant. In the area of these sand traps, exceedances of the permissible hydrogen sulfide concentrations were detected. The emissions are to be captured by an on-site cover and the hydrogen sulfide is to be removed from the exhaust air stream with the exhaust air purification system. The task of the exhaust air purification system is to extract the gas space from the sand trap and clean the contaminated exhaust air. The purified exhaust air is then released to the environment.

Groundwater treatment plant for CFC contaminated groundwater

Ostendstraße, Berlin Köpenick

At the Ostendstraße site in Berlin Köpenick, CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) damage was detected in groundwater in 2005, which has been hydraulically rehabilitated by the Harbauer GmbH groundwater purification plant since 2013. The measure serves to protect the transfer path to the Wuhlheide water treatment plants.

The raised water's CFC contaminations are removed using a three-stage desorption unit, and the resulting process exhaust air is burned in a catalytic oxidation plant to produce water, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen halides. The process air for stripping is circulated so that no exhaust air is produced.

Construction water treatment plant for the removal of suspended solids and oil

Stockholm

At the Stockholm location, Harbauer GmbH has built and operated a plant for the treatment of construction water from a tunnel construction project.

The aim of the plant was to remove suspended solids and the oil phase from the wastewater. For this purpose, the water was passed over a 75 m3 sedimentation tank in the first process step according to a distributor template. This served to separate the floating oil phase as well as remove suspended solids.This was followed in the second process step by a further sedimentation tank for sedimentation of the remaining suspended solids.
