The purpose of this document is to describe the research and development of hydraulic and pneumatic fracturing technologies to remove contaminants from soil and ground water at waste disposal and spill sites. The pneumatic fracturing process involves injection of highly pressurized air into consolidated sediments that are contaminated to extend existing fractures and create a secondary network of fissures and channels. Hydraulic fracturing creates distinct sand-filled fractures in low permeability and over-consolidated clays or sediments.
