Abstract : The objective of this guidance manual is to provide a tool to U.S. Air Force engineers and decision makers for use in evaluation and selection of air stripping with emissions control technology. The development of this manual was part of a larger activity for the U.S. Air Force focused on the field study and demonstration of the state of the art in air stripping with emissions control technology. The intent of the guidance manual is to provide managers and engineers with necessary information so that decisions relating to the application of this technology can proceed on a rational basis. Analysis of the lifetime operating costs for application of air stripping technology for remediation of contaminated groundwater indicates that the use of emissions control devices for systems for air stripping of VOCs from groundwater considerably increases the costs of such operations, cost considerations favor the use of lower values of the stripping factor, and the costs of the remediation of contaminated groundwater are largely controlled by operating rather than capital costs.
