Systematically conducted, well-documented treatability studies are an important component of remedy evaluation and selection under the Superfund program. This manual focuses on solvent extraction treatability studies. This manual presents a standard guide for designing and implementing solvent extraction treatability studies. The manual presents a description of and discusses the applicability and limitations of solvent extraction technologies and defines the prescreening and field measurement data needed to determine if treatability testing is required. It also presents an overview of the process of conducting treatability tests and the applicability of tiered treatability testing for evaluation solvent extraction technologies. The specific goals of each tier of testing are defined and performance levels are presented that should be met at the remedy screening level before additional tests are conducted at the next tier.
