Description

'Surfactant enhanced DNAPL recovery involves the use of injected surfactants to increase the solubility and/or mobility of DNAPL in the subsurface to reduce the time and cost required for site remediation. The successful design of a surfactant enhanced DNAPL recovery system requires a quantitative understanding of the competing processes of DNAPL solubilization and mobilization, and sorption, precipitation, and microbial degradation of injected surfactant components. An innovative new site-characterization technology, the single-well, push-pull test method, is currently under development at Oregon State University and has been successfully used in the field to determine a wide range of aquifer physical, chemical, and ... continued below

Description

'Surfactant enhanced DNAPL recovery involves the use of injected surfactants to increase the solubility and/or mobility of DNAPL in the subsurface to reduce the time and cost required for site remediation. The successful design of a surfactant enhanced DNAPL recovery system requires a quantitative understanding of the competing processes of DNAPL solubilization and mobilization, and sorption, precipitation, and microbial degradation of injected surfactant components. An innovative new site-characterization technology, the single-well, push-pull test method, is currently under development at Oregon State University and has been successfully used in the field to determine a wide range of aquifer physical, chemical, and biological characteristics. A push-pull test consists of the controlled injection of a prepared test solution into a single monitoring well followed by the extraction of the test solution/groundwater mixture from the same well. The type, combination, and concentration of injected solutes is selected to investigate specific aquifer characteristics. The overall goal of this project is to further develop the single-well, push-pull test method as a new site characterization and feasibility assessment tool for studying the fundamental fate and transport behavior of injected surfactants and their ability to solubilize and mobilize DNAPLs in the subsurface. The specific objectives are: (1) to develop a modified push-pull test for use in identifying and quantifying the effects of sorption, precipitation, and biodegradation on the fate and transport of injected surfactants, (2) to use the developed test method to quantify the effects of these processes on the ability of injected surfactants to solubilize and mobilize residual phase trichloroethylene, and (3) to demonstrate the utility of the developed test method for performing site characterization and feasibility studies for surfactant enhanced DNAPL recovery systems.'
