Remediation Of Dnapls Using Emulsified Zero-Valent Iron: Laboratory And Field Results
Research conducted at the University of Florida demonstrated the feasibility of using emulsions containing iron particles to expediate dehalogenation of dense non-aqueous phase liquids. The components of the emulsion, corn or vegetable oil, food-grade surfactant, water and iron particles are biodegradable and/or harmless to the environment. Surfactant micelles possess the ability to pull pooled TCE into emulsion droplets where degradation of TCE takes place. A direct push injection technology is not adequate for subsurface placement of the emulsion. A field test is evaluating evaluated under the EPA Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation Program deployed in August 2002 at Cape Canaveral Air Station, Launch Complex 34. This is an abstract of a paper originally presented at the 225th ACS Meeting (New Orleans, LA 3/23-27/2003).
