Bench-scale laboratory experiments were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of air stripping for in situ remediation of benzene-contaminated soils. Several parametric studies were performed to evaluate the effect of soil grain size, air injection flow rate, and air inlet temperature on the benzene recovery efficiency. An increase in soil grain size produced a significant increase in benzene recovery efficiency especially during the early stages of air injection. After 2 h of treatment, an… CONTINUE READING
