Frontier Chemical Site - Niagara Falls, New York

The Frontier Chemical Superfund Site is Midwest Soil Remediation's fifth thermal soil remediation project conducted in the State of New York. Our prior work in the State has included three other Superfund Sites:

American Valve Superfund Site - Coxsackie, NY

National Pipe Superfund Site - Vestal, NY

Sweeden-3 Chapman Site - Sweeden, NY

This latest project in Niagara Falls involved the on-site thermal treatment of soils contaminated with various VOC's including monochlorotoluene, tetrachloroethene, chlorobenzene, dichlorobenzene, trichlorobenzene, dichloroethane, trichloroethene, toluene, and benzene.

An extensive stack emissions characterization program was conducted in August which confirmed the equipment satisfied all operating criteria and demonstrated destruction removal efficiencies exceeding 99.999%.

Thermal processing began in July, 2013 and was complete early December, 2013.

A total of over 42,000 tons were processed successfully.
