Modular Remediation Testing Systems documents a unique modular testing environment designed for use in the development of remediation technology and for on-site selection of remedial technologies. This complete design and operation manual gives you the tools you need to conduct successful, cost effective remediation projects. The major attributes of this system, the Experimental Controlled Release System (ECRS), that distinguish it from past test facilities include the following:
  • Portable - shippable to the researcher's location or remediation site
  • Tightly sealable - facilitates mass balance
  • Large pilot-scale facility - step below full-scale demonstration
  • Flexible testing conditions - vadose zone or aquifer, chemical release or contaminated soil, air sparging or SVE
  • Easy to construct - design drawings developed, standard equipment
  • Easy to operate and maintain - easy access, standard equipment
  • Affordable - easily shipped and set up, reduced regulatory requirements, minimal maintenance
  • Faster tests - reduced or eliminated permitting, operate within one week of arrival, programmable for 24-hour duration
    This monograph presents key information needed to design, construct, and operate similar modular remediation testing systems or to utilize the two existing modular ECRS facilities. The well-sealed, above-ground modular system design minimizes leaks to the environment, facilitates mass balances, and controls test conditions. This allows for multiple uses with minimal permitting.
    Modular Remediation Testing Systems is a comprehensive reference for researchers in environmental engineering and for engineering consultants and regulators looking for a pilot-scale system. These pilot-scale systems are uniquely suited to both research development and real-world application at remediation sites.
