Abstract : The original scope of this project involved demonstration and validation of the use of electron shuttles compounds for the oxidative biodegradation of cis-1,2- dichloroethene (cis-DCE) and vinyl chloride (VC). As results from the treatability study using radiolabeled vinyl chloride were not encouraging, the project was cancelled. Since this project was not completed as planned, this final report does not the follow the standard Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) report format. This report presents the findings from field sampling and analysis and treatability testing that was conducted at both Dr. Derek Lovley s and Dr. Frank Chapelle s laboratories.
