Soil Venting, Bioventing, Dual Phase Extraction & Air Injection

Soil venting is an innovative technology for removing organic contaminants to remediate polluted soil zones. The organic contaminants can be in the soil in three different zones: as free "product" in pools or residual globules, dissolved in the groundwater, or as vapors in the vadose zone. Soil venting directly deals with the free product and the organic vapors in the vadose zone by applying a vacuum through wells and extracting the air in the contaminated zone. Soil venting also deals indirectly with groundwater contamination, by removing the overlying free product and vapors, promoting transfer of the contaminants into the vadose zone, where they are removed through the extraction wells.
