Abstract : The Air Force Armstrong Laboratory, Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, has supported the research and development of Radio Frequency Soil Decontamination. Radio frequency soil decontamination is essentially a heat-assisted soil vapor extraction process. Site S-1 at Kelly Air Force Base, Texas, was selected for the demonstration of two patented techniques. The site is a former sump that collected spills and surface runoff from a waste petroleum, oils, and lubricants and solvent storage and transfer area. In 1993, a technique developed by the ITT Research Institute using an array of electrodes placed in the soil was demonstrated. In 1994, a technique developed by KAI Technologies, Inc. using a single applicator placed in a vertical borehole was demonstrated. Approximately 120 tons of soil were heated during each demonstration to a temperature of about 150 degrees Celsius.
