Engineering and Design: In-Situ Air Sparging (Engineer by US Army Corps of Engineers

By US Army Corps of Engineers

In-situ air sparging (IAS) is a swiftly rising remediation know-how for therapy of contaminants in saturated quarter soils and groundwater. Injection less than the water desk of air, natural oxygen, or different gases can result in removing of contaminants via volatilization or bioremediation. much less more often than not, IAS can be utilized to immobilize contaminants via chemical alterations resembling precipitation. This Engineer guide (EM) presents assistance for review of the feasibility and applicability of IAS for remediation of infected groundwater and soil and, as a secondary goal, describes layout and operational concerns for IAS structures.
