2002 In Situ Flushing Process for the Treatment of Mixed-Contaminated Soil

Monique Punt and Bill Wong, SAIC

  • Lower costs associated with in-situ treatment (no soil excavation/ building demolition required)
  • Minimal interruption of commercial/industrial activities at the site
  • Treatment rates are generally slower than for ex-situ treatment
  • Open” treatment system

The objectives of the study were to evaluate the in-situ flushing of the petroleum contaminated soil; Evaluate the effect of lignosulfonates on the removal of PHC; Optimize process parameters; Design and build a prototype pilot test system; and demonstrate the technology.
