Soil & Ground Water Remediation

Chemical, Mechanical, and Microbial Technologies

Chemical Technologies

SE Sciences has unparalleled experience with chemical remediation of the most challenging environmental contaminants located within the most difficult of industrial settings, including: mfg. gas plants (MGP’s), lacquer mfg. factories, metals plating facilities, fueling terminals, and dry cleaning retail stores.SE Sciences takes great pride in the rich tradition of innovative chemical based treatment techniques that have established our company as an industry leader.

Staff personnel have consistently succeeded in achieving remedial endpoints and site closures for our clients with a variety of chemical reagents – peroxygens, permanganates, persulfates, metabisulfites, and polysulfides.

SE Sciences chemical remediation accomplishments also include:

SE Sciences is the developer and patent holder for encapsulated environmental reactants, sustained release reactants, controlled release reactants, and selective oxidation…

SE Sciences is the developer and patent holder for the installation of solid reactants into the subsurface via directionally drilled permeable reactive barriers (DD-PRBs)…

Three issued patents and four pending patents related to in situ soil and groundwater remediation technologies…

Mechanical Technologies

SE Sciences chemical remediation accomplishments also include:

Microbial Technologies

Aerobic, Anaerobic, and Cometabolic Processes

SE Sciences technical director and principal, Mr. Jason Swearingen, was a member of the remedial team that first introduced reductive dechlorination to the US Army Corps. of Engineers – Louisville District as related to a Nike missile defense base remediation project in Missouri.

The terms reductive decholorination, injection substrate, contaminant daughter products, etc. have become common within the consulting community over the last decade. Numerous chemical distribution company’s have had fantastic success in creating a widespread misconception that guaranteed site closure comes pre-packaged in an array of 5-gallon buckets; in essence taking the science out of microbial based remediation.


We at SE Sciences refute this belief, and take great pride in designing and implementing proven biological processes; all of which are grounded within the fundamental scientific principles that make consistent success a reality. Site specific details such as hydrogeological characteristics, geological and geochemical profile, contaminant physical and chemical properties, statistical evaluations, metabolic kinetics, chemical equilibria, and endpoint objectives are methodically scrutinized to determine which microbial based techniques would possess the highest probability of success.
