Ozone-air sparging provides enhanced stripping of VOCs from groundwater while introducing ozone as a highly reactive oxidant to destroy the targeted compounds. Ozone is a highly reactive chemical that has proven to be effective in destroying a wide variety of organic chemicals, including MTBE and chlorinated VOCs. Ozone destroys organic chemicals through the process of chemical oxidation, which breaks the targeted organic chemical down into carbon dioxide and water.
- Low initial capital equipment costs.
- Minimal site disturbance
- Does not require soil vapor extraction since the contaminants are destroyed in-situ rather than transferred from the dissolved state to the vapor state.
- Small self contained units for short term use
- Large trailer mounted units for full scale clean-up
