A promising method of accelerating the removal of re sidual DNAPLs from aquifers involves the mobilization of trapped glob ules by alcohol flooding. This technology was originally developed in the petroleum industry for the recovery of residual oil after waterflooding. Alcohols can significantly reduce the interfacial tension between the re sidual DNAPLs and the aqueous phase, allowing for mobilization of trapped globules through pore constrictions. In addition, laboratory batch and column… CONTINUE READING
