Abstract

As the world's leading energy source, petroleum hydrocarbons arc being transported and stored almost everywhere in the planet, and are therefore become the most often encountered pollutants in the environment. Many methods have been tried to remove petroleum hydrocarbons from soil, water and the air. This paper reports an innovarive soil remediation technology invented and patented by the TerraChem Environmental Services which is a member of McLaren/Hart's remedial services group.
