This document describes the performance and costs associated with a modified internal combustion engine ICE used for the destruction of hydrocarbon vapors extracted from fuel contaminated soils. During the period of 18 October 1993 to 14 January 1994, an ICE treatment system manufactured by VR Systems Inc. in Anaheim, California was tested at the Patrick Air Force Base AFB, Florida, active Base Exchange BX service station. The ICE test was conducted in conjunction with an ongoing soil vapor extractionbioventing pilot test directed and funded by the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence AFCEE, Technology Transfer Division ERT. The purpose of this test was to independently measure both the performance and the cost of ICE operation, and to determine how this technology can be most effectively used to complement the bioventing technology.
