The report summarizes available information on air emissions from the treatment of soils contaminated with fuels. Soils contaminated by leaks or spills of fuel products, such as gasoline or jet fuel, are a nationwide concern. Air emissions during remediation are a potential problem due to the volatile nature of many of the fuel components and the remediation processes themselves, which may promote or result in contaminant transfer to the vapor phase. Limited information is also included on air emissions from the treatment of soils contaminated with hazardous wastes. The report will allow staff from state and local regulatory agencies, as well as staff from EPA regional offices, to assess the options for cleaning up soil contaminated with fuels. Seven general remediation approaches are addressed. For each, information is presented about the remediation process, the typical air emission species of concern and their release points, and the available air emissions data. Control technologies for each approach are identified and their reported efficiencies are summarized. Cost data are given for each approach and for its associated control technologies. Emission factors and other emission estimation procedures for each remediation approach are presented along with a brief case study.
