Abstract : This technology demonstration was completed to determine the feasibility of using an ultraviolet (UV) oxidizing catalyst in the presence of ozone to treat non-chlorinated, fuel hydrocarbon volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The soil vapor extraction (SVE) and treatment demonstration was conducted at the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) Site SS-20 located at Myrtle Beach Air Force Base (AFB), Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Site SS-20, locally known as the MOGAS site, was previously investigated under the IRP and known to be contaminated with gasoline residuals. This demonstration was conducted from 10 November to 20 December 1996 and was performed as part of an ongoing innovative technologies evaluation program sponsored by the Air Force in order to promote cost-effective vapor treatment technologies at contaminated sites. The technology demonstration was performed in accordance with the 'Treatability Study Test Design for ULTROX(registered) UV/Oxidation System Pilot Scale Treatability Testing at Myrtle Beach AFB, Myrtle Beach, SC.' (Zimpro, ULTROX Division, September, 1995) as approved by the Air Force and regulatory agencies.
