The report evaluates the perox-pure chemical oxidation technology's ability to remove volatile organic compounds (VOC) and other organic contaminants present in liquid wastes. The report also presents economic data from the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) demonstration and three cases studies. The perox-pure chemical oxidation technology was developed by Peroxidation Systems Inc. (PSI), to destroy dissolved organic contaminants in water. The technology uses ultraviolet (UV) radiation and hydrogen peroxide to oxidize organic compounds present in water at parts per million levels or less. This treatment technology produces no air emissions and generates no sludge or spent media that require further processing, handling, or disposal. The perox-pure chemical oxidation technology was demonstrated under the SITE Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Site 300 in Tracy, CA. Over a 3-week period in September 1992, about 40,000 gallons of VOC contaminated ground water was treated in the perox-pure system. For the SITE demonstration, the perox-pure system achieved trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE) removal efficiencies of about 99.7 & 97.1 percent, respectively.
