In April 1996, IT Corporation began operating the first stage of a demonstration-scale system called the Base Catalyzed Decomposition Process (BCDP) on Guam for the US Navy. This report presents the results of a study funded by NRMRL. The purpose of the study was to obtain data which will facilitate a more thorough understanding of the BCD chemistry and the fate of soil-bound PCBs, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) in the BCDP/APCS operating on Guam. The scope of this study entailed sampling and analyses of Guam soil (both before and after treatment) as well as sampling and analyses of the liquids, soil particles, and offgas streams from the APC during normal operation of the Guam BCDP system. The objectives of the study are as follows: (1) Determine the efficiency of the BCD first-stage rotary kiln reactor for removing PCBs, PCDDs, and PCDFs from Guam soil; (2) Concurrent with Objective 1, determine where in the Air Pollution Control System PCBs, PCDDs, and PCDFs are being removed.
