  • VOC Remediation Using HRC at Navy Base

    Site Summary Site investigations at a Naval Base in Long Beach, California revealed high contaminant levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from a dry cleaning operation. In well MW-14-S4, the contamination levels of DCE, TCE and PCE reached 4,100 μg/L, 4,000μg/L, and 6,500 μg/L, respectively. The land use in this vicinity was primarily industrial and operations ceased by ...

  • Cryogenic Treatment Unit (TU-51) for Recovery of VOCs for Soil Remediation

    A Cryogenic Treatment Unit or TU-51 was developed to apply a cryogenic air treatment process to recover persistent vapor phase volatile organic compounds (VPVOC) having extremely low boiling points. These would include explosive compounds present in the vapor stream. The portable TU-51VPVOC (OEM) operates the following process: vapors are recovered from geologic units via SVE, often from a ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Halogenated VOCs in Soil, Sediment and Sludge

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with halogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific analysis ...

  • Lessons Learned from a Dual-Phase Extraction Field Application

    ABSTRACT A field-scale Dual-Phase Extraction (DPE) system was installed and operated at the Pinellas Science, Technology, and Research (STAR) Center, formerly the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Pinellas Plant, in Largo, Florida, from August 1997 through September 1999. The goal of applying the DPE system was to enhance the pump-and-treat remediation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) ...

  • Air Emissions/Off-Gas Treatment

    A number of technologies have been widely applied for removal of VOCs from off-gas streams. However, the application of these technologies to off-gases from site remediation may be quite limited. Biofiltration has been widely applied for VOC destruction in Europe and Japan, but it has only recently been used in the United States. Catalytic and thermal oxidation are widely used for the destruction ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs in Air Emissions/Off-Gases

    Three technologies that are most commonly used to treat nonhalogenated VOCs in air emissions/off-gases are carbon adsorption, catalytic oxidation, and thermal oxidation. Carbon adsorption is a remediation technology in which pollutants are removed from air by physical adsorption onto the carbon grain. Carbon is 'activated' for this purpose by processing the carbon to create porous particles with ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Halogenated VOCs in Ground Water, Surface Water and Leachate

    It may be necessary to know other subsurface information to provide remediation of VOCs in the ground water. Treatability studies to characterize the biodegradability may be needed for any biodegradation technologies. Treatability studies are usually necessary to ensure that the contaminated ground water can be treated effectively at the design flow. A subsurface geologic characterization would ...

  • Presumptive Remedies

    A presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site. EPA is establishing presumptive remedies to accelerate site-specific analysis of remedies by focusing the feasibility study efforts. EPA expects that a presumptive remedy, when available, will be used for all CERCLA sites except under ...
