About this book

While tremendous progress has been made in remediating sites that have been contaminated by chlorinated solvents, stabilizers that are added to chlorinated solvents in order to improve their performance have been overlooked. This book is the first to focus on this previously overlooked contaminant: 1,4 Dioxane. Written by the authority in the field, it presents an indispensable reference for forensic investigation of source apportionment at solvent release sites and focuses on areas of interest including: why solvent stabilizers are used; how they become concentrated in the "still bottom" wastes; and how sites contaminated with solvent stabilizers can be identified, investigated and remediated.

Contents

Stabilizing Solvents for Vapor Degreasing. Solvent Stabilizer Compounds in the Subsurface Environment. Toxicology of Solvent Stabilizer Compounds. Drinking Water Standards for Solvent Stabilizer Compounds. Laboratory Analysis of Solvent Stabilizer Compounds. Treatment Technology for Removal of 1,4-dioxane and Other Stabilizer Compounds. Use of Solvent Stabilizer Compounds in Forensic Geochemical Investigations. Case Histories. The Lessons Learned: Technical and Policy Issues.
