Description:

Laboratory biotreatability studies evaluated the use of bioventing and biosparging plus groundwater circulation (UVB technology) for their potential abililty to treat soil and groundwater containing creosote and pentachlorophenol. Soils from two former wood-treatment facilities were used in these studies. These studies provided useful, site-specific data demonstrating enhanced biodegradation of all monitored organic constituents. The results suggest that the introduction and delivery of co-reagents (i.e., oxygen and nitrogen) essential to in situ biodegradation of organic wood preservatives represents an important component of effective in situ bioremediation. Full-scale implementation strategies are being considered based on the findings of these studies.
