Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to demonstrate a full-scale in situ soil venting technology and to carefully document the design, operation and performance of this system so that it could be applied at other Air Force contaminated sites. Although this technology is now commercially available, its ability to fully remediate jet fuel spills had never been proven, nor had the full-scale costs ever been validated when catalytic incineration is used as an emission control method. ESL Technical Report 90-21 is in three volumes. The first volume is a complete literature review of previous soil venting research and field work. Volume II is a guidance manual which provides important design information and describes methods of pilot testing this technology prior to full-scale application. Results of the Hill AFB test are included in Volume III. These publications will provide invaluable information to Air Force engineers responsible for cleaning up chemically contaminated sites....
