Quicklime (calcium oxide, CaO) is often used as part of soil cleanup operations to remove contaminants or to create more favorable physical soil conditions for treatment. The extent to which quicklime chemically reacts with trichloroethylene (TCE) was evaluated by reacting CaO with a TCE-water mixture in test vessels designed to minimize volatilization loss… CONTINUE READING
