The problem of aquifer contamination remains one of the greatest challenges facing environmental scientists and engineers. Air sparging, a technique unknown until recently, has emerged with increasing application frequency as an alternative to both the pump-and-treat technology and conventional in situ bioremediation for treating this problem. This book, featuring contributions from the world's most experienced air sparging practitioners, conveys the latest practical experience and information from North America and Europe. Air Sparging for Site Remediation presents an overview of air sparging in general and detailed information on particular air sparging technologies and their applications. The book examines the application of the technology to a variety of contaminants, including hydrocarbons, pesticides, nitrates, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. In addition, these specific topics and more are discussed:
