Abstract : This report summarizes the findings of a demonstration of the Hot Air Vapor Extraction (HAVE) technology, developed by Global Remedial Technologies, Inc. The technology demonstration was conducted under the Department of Defense Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) as part of the National Environmental Technology Test Site (NETTS) program. The technology demonstration was conducted at the Advanced Fuel Hydrocarbon National Test Site (HNTS), Port Hueneme, California, over a 3-month period between August 21, 1995 and November 22, 1995. The primary objectives of the demonstration were to: (1) validate the efficacy of the HAVE technology to treat a wide range of hydrocarbons contaminated soils, (2) gather information necessary to estimate treatment costs, and (3) develop engineering guidance to allow routine application of this remediation technology DoD-wide. The demonstration consisted of two phases and five separate test runs. During the demonstration, the system performance was optimized by varying operating parameters and by changing the treatment cell configuration. The economic analysis indicated that the unit cost for the treatment of a batch of 750 cubic yards (cu. yds.) of soil is approximately $82/cu. yd. Larger volumes of soil can be treated at lower unit costs due to reductions in mobilization, site preparation, and startup costs.
