The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has sought to develop soil decontamination technologies which are effective, but which do not involve incineration. This paper presents the results of a study in which a steam-assisted, thermodesorption system utilized on Guam was characterized in terms of its effectiveness for removing PCBs and PCDD/Fs from soil. Data are also presented which are indicative of the performance of the air pollution control system which is directly coupled to the thermodesorber. The potential for formation of PCDD/Fs during thermodesorption is discussed.
