Abstract Soil vapor extraction (SVE) is designed to physically remove volatile compounds, generally from the vadose or unsaturated zone. It is an in situ process employing vapor extraction wells alone or in combination with air injection wells. Vacuum blowers supply the motive force, inducing air flow through the soil matrix. The air strips the volatile compounds from the soil and carries them to the screened extraction well. Air emissions from the systems are typically controlled by adsorption of the volatiles onto activated carbon, thermal destruction (incineration or catalytic oxidation), or condensation by refrigeration. SVE is a developed technology that has been used in commercial operations for several years. The final determination of the lowest cost alternative will be more site-specific than process equipment dominated. The bulletin provides information on the technology applicability, the limitations of the technology, the technology description, the types of residuals produced, site requirements, the latest performance data, the status of the technology, and sources for further information.
