|Horizontal Configuration of the Lasagna Treatment Technology, User Guide (EPA/600/R-02/033) June 2002
This user's guide discusses the technology and operations unique to the installation and operation of the horizontal configuration of an integrated soil remediation technology. This technology, named Lasagna because of the layers of electrodes and treatment zones, has been developed to combine electrokinetics with treatment zones for use in low-permeability soils where rates of hydraulic and electrokinetic transport are too low to be useful for remediation of contaminants.
The technology was developed by two groups: industrial partners and the U.S. Department of Energy, and EPA and the University of Cincinnati. Each group pursued different electrode geometries. This report deals with the horizontal configuration where electrodes and treatment zones are installed by hydraulic fracturing in soil.
