The report summarizes the results of a Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) demonstration of the CF Systems critical fluid organics extraction system at the New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts Superfund site. The technology depends on the ability of organic pollutants to solubilize in the process solvent, a liquefied gas. The pollutants treated include polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. The report examines the performance of the process in terms of PCB extraction efficiency, variation in process operating conditions, potential health and safety impacts, equipment and handling problems, and projected system economics. Volume I covers process design, field activities, sampling and analytical program, and results and discussion.
