Enhancement of TCE volatilization and vapor extraction from variably-saturated clay using salt and alcohol solutions
One of the most common dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) found in polluted underground systems in the U.S. is trichloroethylene (TCE). Most of the remediation technologies for chlorinated solvents like TCE have been ...
Development of testbed for assessment of enhanced soil vapor extraction of trichloroethylene in unsaturated clayey soil
Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a volatile organic compound (VOC) commonly found in many contaminated sites. It is a dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPLs) considered harmful to human health. DNAPL pose particular threats ...
Enhanced trichloroethylene remediation with a polymer-aided alcohol flushing
In situ flushing for remediation of dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) contaminated soil and groundwater is done by the injection of a solvent solution into the contaminated zone. The system is followed by downstream ...
Fate and transport of TCE aqueous and non-aqueous phases in a karstified limestone physical groundwater model under different flow rates
This research assesses the fate and transport of non-aqueous and dissolved trichloroethene (TCE) in a karstified limestone physical model (KLPM). The KLPM integrates a limestone block (15 cm x 15 cm x 77 cm) and simulates ...
