Protocol for In-Situ Bioremediation of Chlorinated Solvents Using Edible Oil
This course was developed to presents a technical protocol for designing and implementing in-situ bioremediation cleanup strategies at chlorinated solvent sites using edible oil. Management of groundwater contaminated with chlorinated solvents is one of the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) greatest environmental challenges. Because of their physical and chemical properties, most chlorinated solvents are relatively recalcitrant in the subsurface, are more difficult to access once they are in the ground, and take longer to remediate. Consequently, the cost of remediating chlorinated solvents sites may significantly exceed the cost of remediating POL sites. The Edible Oil Process is part of an initiative by the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment to develop and demonstrate new technologies for the remediation of chlorinated solvents in groundwater.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of forty (40) questions to earn 8 PDH credits.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding of the biological processes that degrade chlorinated solvents
- A design approach to implement bioremediation of chlorinated solvents using edible oil
- Detailed review of the USAFCE protocol for the edible oil process
