REMEDIAL TECHNOLOGY FACT SHEET: ACTIVATED CARBON-BASED TECHNOLOGY FOR IN SITU SUBSURFACE REMEDIATION
EPA 542-F-18-001, 9 pp, 2018

This fact sheet presents an emerging remedial technology that applies a combination of activated carbon (AC) and chemical and/or biological amendments for in situ remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated by organic contaminants, primarily petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents. With the development of several commercially available AC-based products, this remedial technology has been applied with increasing frequency at contaminated sites across the country, including numerous leaking underground storage tank and dry cleaner sites. It also has been recently applied at several Superfund sites and at federal facilities that are not on the National Priorities List. This fact sheet provides information to practitioners and regulators for a better understanding of the science and current practice of AC-based remedial technologies for in situ applications. https://semspub.epa.gov/src/document/HQ/100001159
