Chemical oxidants are increasingly being used for in-situ destruction of organic contaminants in ground-water. The most common implementation involves using an injection/withdrawal system to circulate oxidants (e.g., potassium permanganate, hydrogen peroxide, and Fenton’s Reagent) through a DNAPL-source zone. Since the efficiency of chemical oxidation is highly dependent on geological heterogeneities, effective delivery schemes are essential for successful remediation. This paper reviews the… CONTINUE READING
