The report is a project summary of an evaluation of eight alternative treatments for PCB-contaminated sediments. The processes are: Basic Extraction Sludge Treatment (B.E.S.T.), UV/Ozone or Hydrogen/Ultrasonics Technology, Bio-Clean Naturally-Adapted Microbe, Potassium Polyethylene Glycolate (KPEG), Low Energy Extraction, MODAR Supercritical Water Oxidation, Critical Fluid System (CFS), Propane Extraction, and Battelle In Situ Vitrification. The processes were evaluated using five criteria that were addressed by engineering analysis of available data and site visits to developers' facilities. The processes were ranked comparatively as to the overall desirability of thorough test and evaluation using all five criteria collectively.
