Soil vapor extraction is a cost-effective technique for the removal of volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) from contaminated soils. Among the advantages of the soil air extraction processes are that they create a minimal disturbance of the contaminated soil, they can be constructed from standard equipment, there is demonstrated experience with soil vapor extraction at pilot- and field-scale, they can be used to treat larger volumes of soil than can be practically excavated, and there is a potential for product recovery. The experience with existing extraction systems has been reviewed and information about each system is briefly summarized.
