Activated Carbons and Manufactured Gas Plants

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the pros and cons related to each of these factors when using one of three accepted options in conjunction with the 'hog and haul' method of remediating a site. The options are the use of (1) minimal controls, (2) extensive onsite monitoring and (3) a fabric structure with limited air testing.

As we are all aware, the government continues to react to public and media pressures relating to real or perceived environmentally caused health problems. Therefore, there is the possibility that new regulations will require more stringent guidelines for controlling emissions during the remediation operations and minimizing the need for further action in the future.
