In situ vitrification: Technology status and a survey of new applications

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) is developing a thermal treatment process called in situ vitrification (ISV) for remediating contaminated soils, underground structures such as tanks, and buried wastes. ISV was initially developed for contaminated soil applications in 1980 and has since become a mature technology for these applications. Relatively new applications of ISV to underground structures and buried wastes are currently in the development stages. This paper will outline the development progress of the ISV technology, including the results of demonstrations and other field-scale testing performed to date, and examine the key remaining issues associated with new ISV applications. Progress on ... continued below
