Abstract [en]

Soil Vapor Extraction has proven to be a viable method for reducing the mass of volatile compounds from soils that have been impacted by contamination. The theory, design and use of SVE systems have been fairly well documented, however the use of SVE systems in cold environments such as Alaska has not been adequately investigated to date. This paper examines the use of SVE systems in cold environments. The affect of low soil temperatures on volatile compound removal by SVE is discussed. Methods used to overcome the impact low temperatures have on the operation and effectiveness of SVE systems are examined in detail. Possible low cost strategies such as barometric pumping during winter months are presented as solutions to reducing SVE operating costs in cold regions
