Rational design relates laboratory treatability studies at field scale to the distribution of contaminants and to the residence time of remedial fluids. The electron acceptor is usually the limiting factor in bioremediation. Ideally, the electron acceptor should not be depleted as water or air moves across the region contaminated with oily phase material. When all of the contaminated mass receives adequate supplies of electron acceptor, the course of remediation should parallel that established in the laboratory study. If regions of the contaminated mass are not adequately supplied, the course of remediation at field scale is not predicted in any straightforward way from the laboratory study. Rational design compares the residence time and concentration of electron acceptor at field scale to the demand demonstrated for the electron acceptor in the laboratory to ensure that the engineered implementation of in situ bioremediation is adequate.
