The comprehensive report describes the work performed in several laboratories toward the development of the alkali metal polyethylene glycolate (APEG) chemical dechlorination technology. The equipment and operational procedures implemented in various studies (ranging in scope from laboratory scale to full scale) are described and the results obtained are presented. Much of the work described herein was funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory, Cincinnati, OH. The initial laboratory studies that were performed focused on treatment of oils that were contaminated with PCBs as well as closely related compounds, including polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs). Laboratory-scale studies involving PCB-, PCDD-, and PCDF-contaminated soils were performed during the early to mid-1980s; the results of these studies led to the design and implementation of drum and pilot-scale versions of the APEG process. The report provides the potential users of the APEG process with information that can be used to assess which version of the APEG process is best suited for implementation at a particular site.
