    Solution Preview

    There are basically two methods of in-situ treatment of chlorinated solvent in groundwater: physical/chemical treatment methods, or biological methods. In situ solidification/stabilization detoxifies contaminants in the sediment by separating them from the environment, or by changing them into a chemically-unavailable form. Air sparging, directional wells, dual phase extraction, and fluid/vapor extraction are separation techniques. They are generally effective and relatively fast, compared to ...
