Communicate/Collaborate With Us
Work with us
Communication is a tenant of our Restoration Principles and we want to hear from you! Your questions, comments and idea’s are a critical part of the Aerojet Rocketdyne restoration process.
Collaboration improves the environment
- Partnering with our neighbors can improve the communities within which we operate
Partnerships with innovate technology partners to commercialize novel innovative treatment systems brings step function reductions in cost to the environmental remediation industry while accelerating restoration. Aerojet Rocketdyne is currently interested in innovative technologies that will treat groundwater and have the following differentiators:
- Passive – Minimal energy requirement
- In-situ – Aesthetically pleasing
- Low O&M – No consumables and minimal monitoring,
- Economically Feasible Capital Cost – Amorization must justify affordability.
- Destructive – Chemical elimination rather than media transfer
- Sustainable – Solar powered, no solid waste, no air emissions
Examples of mutually beneficial partnerships improving the environment
6.0 Megawatt Solar facility - Built in partnership with Solar Power, Inc. and Sacramento Municipal Utility District with regulatory facilitation through the United States Environmental Protection Agency
- Offsets ~6,000 tons of carbon dioxide while freeing up generation capacity for approximately 725 average-size homes
Ancil Hoffman Park Water Treatment Facility - Cooperative partnership between Aerojet Rocketdyne, the Carmichael Water District and Sacramento County Parks with regulatory support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the California Regional Water Quality Control Board and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control.
- Treats groundwater and protects the water district's down gradient drinking water sources.
- The treated water is then used by County Parks for irrigation Ancil Hoffman Golf Course and filling a nature pond at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. This beneficial reuse conserves about 1.25 million gallons of potable water annually, saving the county about $100,000 in annual water costs.
- Aerojet Rocketdyne Innovative Technology Program – Aerojet Rocketdyne has partnered with multiple companies to help commercialize innovative technologies that have substantially improved Aerojet Rocketdyne’s remediation activities and once proven at the Aerojet Rocketdyne sites have use at other contaminated sites.
- Fluidized Bed Reactor – Aerojet Rocketdyne partnered with Envirogen on a joint project that scaled the Aerojet Rocketdyne fluidized bed reactor system from a lab system to a 6,500 gpm full-scale industrial system and proved the technology for other DoD sites.
