This work plan has been prepared for McClellan AFB as part of the Soil Remedial Technologies Screening Project, the purpose of which is to identify potentially applicable soil treatment technologies for contaminants found in Operable Unit OU B soils. The work plan presents the rationale and procedures for treatability testing of two technologies applicable to polychlorinated biphenyl PCB, dioxin, and furan contaminated soil. The work plan proposes bench-scale testing of the treatment technologies on soil collected from Study Area 12 SA-12 where PCB, dioxin, and furan contamination have been detected in samples collected over a wide area, and where initial discussions with agency personnel indicate that treatment of the soil will be required as part of the SA-12 remediation effort. The two technologies selected for testing are glycolate dechlorination using the APEG-PLUS process available from GRC Environmental, Inc. and the Base-Catalyzed Desorption Process BCDP developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
