ISCO Treatability Testing

Bench Scale Treatability Studies/Treatability Testing

The Chemical Oxidations Laboratory at Washington State University has been conducting ISCO treatability studies for 25 years. Having published the first refereed journal paper on ISCO in 1990, we are the leading ISCO research lab in the United States. With such long-term institutional knowledge of ISCO, we can optimize your ISCO treatment, with potential cost savings when going to the field. We have conducted treatability studies for most of the major U.S. consulting firms.

The WSU Chemical Oxidations Laboratory has all of the equipment needed to conduct thorough treatability studies including ISCO reagents, an ozone generator, reactors, and analytical equipment. We can design a treatability study for you, or carry out your treatability study plan.
