Groundwater contamination from petroleum products and other organic solvents is a serious environmental problem. Residual volatile organic compounds constitute an ongoing source of contamination. Multi-phase extraction (MPE) is a variation of soil vapor extraction (MPE) and one of the most cost effective methods of removing VOCs from unsaturated soils and groundwater. Unlike SVE, MPE extracts more than one fluid phase from wells or trenches simultaneously. This course will look at the basic strategies for determining when to use MPE, look at basic design principles, start up and operation and maintenance considerations.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
