Part of the SERDP/ESTCP Environmental Remediation Technology book series (SERDP/ESTCP)

Abstract

This chapter summarizes the principles of chlorinated solvent remediation, provides overviews of the biotic and abiotic reactions that can transform and detoxify these compounds, and discusses the remediation challenges posed by the properties and behavior of these compounds in the subsurface environment.
