This innovative technology evaluation report (ITER) summarizes the results of an evaluation of a surfactant-enhanced extraction technology. This evaluation was conducted under a bilateral agreement between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) program and the Federal Republic of Germany Ministry for Research and Technology (BMBF). To provide performance data for the evaluation, the surfactant-enhanced extraction system was demonstrated within an artificial aquifer from February 28 through March 5, 1998 at the Versuchseinrichtung zur Grundwasser-und Altlastensanierung (VEGAS) research facility in Stuttgart, Germany. Prior to the demonstration, the artificial aquifer was injected with xylene to create a contaminant plume for the technology evaluation. During the demonstration, surfactant was injected into the artificial aquifer, groundwater containing xylene was extracted, and the system was monitored to assess the effectiveness of the technology.
