Bioventing is an extremely cost-effective method for treating soils contaminated with fuels (JP-4, diesel, gasoline, and heating oil) and non-chlorinated solvents. In April of this year, the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence (AFCEE) launched a nation-wide 'bioventing initiative' to test the effectiveness of this innovative process at 55 contaminated sites in nineteen states. Twenty systems have already been installed and tested. To ensure that systems were installed and tested consistently, AFCEE developed the comprehensive protocol document. With minimal site specific modifications, the protocol is also used as a regulatory test plan. The concept significantly reduces test plan preparation costs. The AFCEE document introduces the bioventing technology and describes the technical procedures used to set up a bioventing system for field evaluation. It also provides testing, equipment, measurements, and other relevant quantitative data.
