Under SERDP Project ER-2307, scientists focused on the following tasks: (1) conduct a "big data" study to identify the typical scale and conditions within 1,4-dioxane and/or CVOC sites; (2) assess metal catalysis as a novel treatment approach; (3) evaluate chemical oxidation, catalysis, and biodegradation processes to understand the potential advantages of combined treatments on dioxane degradation kinetics; and (4) investigate the potential contribution of matrix diffusion processes on fate and transport via comprehensive modeling of typical dioxane release scenarios and a field investigation of the relationship between dioxane concentrations and site hydrostratigraphy at two contaminated groundwater sites. The goal is to use the findings to develop a more informed basis for managing 1,4-dioxane sites. In addition to the main report, project results are summarized in a lessons-learned fact sheet.

Remediation Journal Special Issue Targets 1,4-Dioxane

The Winter 2016 issue of Remediation Journal is dedicated to recent developments in 1,4-dioxane investigation and remediation techniques. The nine papers in this issue offer two case studies and cover treatment overviews, innovations in characterization, and sustainability issues.
