Soil Vapor Extraction: A Proven Method of Reducing VOCs in Environmental Media

Soil vapor extraction (SVE) is a proven in-situ technology used to remediate various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from soil and soil vapor within the vadose zone. Vapor extraction involves applying a vacuum throughout the area of soil that has been impacted by VOCs. Through the pressure differential created between the extraction wells and the surrounding soil, VOCs are stripped from the soil by moving air through the vadose soil zone.

The fracking process involves pumping water, chemicals, and sand (proppant) slurry at high pressure into a well, which fractures the surrounding rock formation and props open passages,
