Klozur® CR Used for Chemical Oxidation at a Former Bulk Fuel Oil Facility

In situ chemical oxidation using Klozur® CR to treat BTEX constituents

Type of Site

Former bulk fuel oil facility


Linebach, Funkhouser, Inc.


New Albany, IN

Contaminants Treated

Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylenes


Klozur® CR was used to treat unsaturated and saturated soils and groundwater impacted by BTEX constituents on the site of a former bulk fuel oil facility with both above-ground and underground storage tanks. Klozur CR was applied to the affected area through soil blending. 


All of the BTEX concentrations were reduced to below detection limits; specifically, dissolved benzene was reduced by three orders of magnitude in concentration which was the target constituent for the project.
