WHITE PAPER ON THERMAL REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR TREATMENT OF CHLORINATED SOLVENTS: SANTA SUSANA FIELD LABORATORY, SIMI VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
California Department of Toxic Substances Control, 69 pp, 2018

The objective of this white paper is to present information that will support the eventual evaluation of in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) to meet remedial objectives in selected areas of groundwater contamination at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory site. Corrective measures studies will be prepared separately by DOE, NASA, and Boeing for their respective areas of responsibility. The ultimate remedial objectives for the site are chlorinated solvent mass removal to a level that meets applicable state and federal risk-based groundwater standards. The ISTR evaluation consists of a comprehensive literature review focused on the application of ISTR to remove VOCs from bedrock sites. This paper is not intended to be a general review of all reported ISTR applications, nor does it provide details regarding ISTR system construction and operation. Rather, this paper summarizes the primary types of ISTR, discusses their effectiveness in reducing chlorinated VOC contamination in bedrock, and provides several specific examples of full-scale implementation. https://www.dtsc-ssfl.com/files/lib_feasibilitystudy/TreatabilityReports/67791_Thermal_Technologies_White_Paper_073018.pdf
