The document reviews the results of a 28 day demonstration program conducted by the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program. Eco Logic International owners and operators of the process, provided their Gas-Phase Chemical Reduction Reactor and a companion Thermal Desorption Unit (TDU) for the demonstration. The Eco Logic Reactor is designed to treat liquid waste streams contaminated with chlorinated compounds, such as PCBs. The companion TDU can be used to desorb organics from contaminated soils. The reduction reaction employed by the Eco Logic process uses high temperatures (900 C) and a hydrogen-rich atmosphere to reduce waste streams to a reformed gas product. This reformed gas product, once scrubbed of HCL, losely matched the composition of other commercial fuel gases. In test runs involving a PCB contaminated waste oil (24.5% PCBs) and a wastewater (3,757 ppm PCBs), the Eco Logic Reactor achieved 99.9999% DRE.
