Abstract Air stripping is a means to transfer contaminants from aqueous solutions to air. Contaminants are not destroyed by air stripping but are physically separated from the aqueous solutions. Contaminant vapors are transferred into the air stream and, if necessary, can be treated by incineration, adsorption, or oxidation. Most frequently, contaminants are collected in carbon adsorption systems and then treated or destroyed in this concentrated form. The concentrated contaminants may be recovered, incinerated for waste heat recovery, or destroyed by other treatment technologies. Generally, air stripping is used as one in a series of unit operations and can reduce the overall cost for managing a particular site. Air stripping is applicable to volatile and semivolatile organic compounds. It is not applicable for treating metals and inorganic compounds. The bulletin provides information on the technology applicability, the technology limitations, a description of the technology, the types of residuals produced, site requirements, the latest performance data, the status of the technology, and sources of further information.
