Electron Donor Solution – Extended Release

As delivered, the physical state of EDS-ER™ (electron donor solution – extended release) by Tersus Environmental is significantly different than standard emulsified vegetable oil (EVO) products. Whereas other EVO products are concentrated emulsions containing water, EDS-ER™ is a water-mixable oil; it contains no water. Thus, the costs for shipping EDS-ER™ are about 50% less than conventional products.

At room temperature, EDS-ER™ is a liquid material with an appearance and viscosity roughly equivalent to vegetable oil.  Unlike common EVO products, EDS-ER™ will not separate, will not freeze, and has a shelf life of 2 years without spoilage.

Tersus Environmental is proud to announce that EDS-ER™ does NOT contain ethoxylated polysorbate surfactants.  As you may know, many environmental remediation injectates, such as emulsified vegetable oils use biodegradable non-ionic surfactants. Unfortunately, ethoxylation, the manufacturing process that creates these surfactants (e.g., polysorbates) often results in these products containing 1,4-dioxane.

 EDS ERMixing

Purpose

EDS-ER™ is a simple, safe, low-cost solution for the bioremediation of halogenated compounds (e.g., PCE, TCE, DCE, VC, TCA, CT, etc.), nitrates, perchlorate, energetics, and select immobilization of oxidized heavy metals.

Benefits

  • 100% fermentable and contains no water
  • Because the product is completely water mixable, the number of necessary injection points for low permeability structures decreases
  • Easily mixes with water, simplifying field operations
  • Controlled release of electron donors for up to five years
  • Food-grade carbon source
  • Low total dissolved solids to comply with secondary water quality requirements for amendments with low salt content
  • Conforms to EPA's EPP (Environmentally Preferable Purchasing) and USDA biobased criteria
  • Neutral pH when mixed with water
 
  • Clean, low-cost, non-disruptive application (e.g., direct-push, wells and excavations)
  • Lowers transportation costs when compared to other electron donors
  • Over two years shelf life
  • Freezing Point is -4 °F (-20 °C)

Field Application Design

EDS-ER™ applications are easily tailored to meet site-specific conditions. Typical configurations consist of grid and barrier patterns and application in excavations or trenches.  The product’s low viscosity allows subsurface distribution through direct-push injection points, hollow-stem augers or pumped through existing wells.

PackagingOptions

  • 55-gallon poly drums
  • 275-gallon IBC containers
  • 3,000 - 5,000 gallon tankers
