Using Air Stripping and Electro Kinetic Soil Flushing to Remove LindaneAuthor(s): Jackson Will
In order to clarify the primary processes taking place in the soil when electric fields of 0.75 V cm and 1.50 V cm are applied, this research assesses the remediation of soil spiked with lindane utilizing a combination treatment consisting of Electro Kinetic Soil Flushing (EKSF) and air stripping. The outcomes show that lindane is delivered to the cathodic and anodic wells effectively when flushing solutions containing Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate (SDS) are used. The air injection also causes a significant proportion to be volatilized and stripped. Because of the very alkaline media in the cathodic well, lindane is rapidly converted into other species. These additional species are also present in the soil areas close to the well, supporting the effectiveness of SDS in the transfer of chlorinated organics.
