Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a halogenated aliphatic organic compound which, due to its unique properties and solvent effects, has been widely used as an ingredient in industrial cleaning solutions and as a universal degreasing agent. Methods that are required for remediation of water contaminated with TCE if such water is to be used for human consumption are discussed. The purpose of this paper is to: (1) present a synopsis of physicochemical properties and reactive mechanisms of TCE, and (2) delineate and discuss promising remediation technologies that have been proposed and/or demonstrated for restoring TCE-contaminated subsurface environmental media.
