  • Pump-and-treat revisited
  • Soil vapor extraction (SVE) and bioventing
  • Air sparging
  • Vacuum enhanced recovery/multiphase extraction (VER/MPE)
  • Engineered in-situ biodegradation/bioremediation – aerobic and anaerobic processe
    • Natural attenuation principles and aquifer assimilative capacity
    • Reactant/nutrient delivery
      • Nutrients
      • Aerobic treatment
      • Anaerobic systems (Enhanced reductive dehalogenation-ERD)
      • In situ chemical oxidation
      • Hydrogen peroxide
      • Fenton reagent
      • Potassium permanganate
      • Ozone
      • Fe(0) anaerobic corrosion
    • Reactive walls/barriers, in-situ reactive zones
    • Vapor migration control
    • Thermal enhancement, resistance heating, in-well stripping, etc.
    • Case studies and design fundamentals
    • Economics

26.10. (9-16.00) Management and Economics

  • Project Life Cycle Strategy and Economics II
  • Reasonable expectations
  • Environmentally/Regulatory acceptable endpoints
  • General costs and case studies
  • Money
  • Most Common Mistakes (technical x managerial)
  • Project staff
  • Risks with too much and too little information
  • Interpretive and design mistakes (hydraulic tests, obstacles unaccounted for, too much is not always better, mass balance x site improvement, isoconcentration).
  • Over-design and economics
  • Drilling; well completion
  • Sampling and QA/QC – what do we really need?
  • Importance of a flexible approach with respect to changing site conditions-active project management.
  • Reporting and documentation …a story to tell
  • Necessary (and unpleasant ) tradeoffs
  • Conclusions
  • Preventive measures are investments well made
