Abstract:

The objective of this effort was to examine the feasibility of using a thermal desorptionultraviolet TDUV destruction technology to treat Herbicide Orange HO -contaminated soil at the Naval Construction Battalion Center NCBC, Gulfport, Mississippi. The IT Corporation pilot -scale TDUV apparatus was used to successfully treat 1700 pounds of sandy-loam, cement stabilized, soil that had been contaminated with HO and 2,3,7,8 tetrachlorobenzo-p-dioxin TCDD. The TDUV process volatilizes organic compounds from the soil matrix collects the desorbed organics in a solvent and destroys the contaminants with high-intensity ultraviolet light. This report is organized into four volumes Volume I presents the final report on the performance of the Thermal DesorptionUltraviolet Photolysis process for use in decontaminating soil containing Herbicide OrangeDioxin. Volume II contains appendices A through O. Volume III contains appendix P Investigation of the applicability of the EPA mobile incinerator system for treating soils contaminated with herbicide orange. Contents of this appendix include Soil characterization Laboratory treatability test Batch pilot KILN tests Heat transfer evaluation and Evaluation of MIS Mobile Incineration System treatment capabilities.
