Vapor Extraction and Bioventing Systems

For many soil conditions where soil is contaminated with hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents, a SVE system of vertical wells penetrating the contaminated plume-utilizing vacuum to induce volatilization of contaminants is an option. Or this piping can be used to inject air (bioventing) to improve aerobic biodegradation of compounds. By connecting the wells with horizontal piping, we create an airflow network to bring vapors to the surface to be scrubbed or oxidized thermally or to stimulate the bioremediation process. Under the right soil conditions, these systems can be very effective and many times can operate without interference to your normal site operations. Engineering designed systems are followed to achieve performance specification.
