Short description: Emulsified edible oils have been used to stimulate in situ anaerobic biodegradation of groundwater contaminants at commercial, industrial and military sites throughout the US. The procedures and applications of emulsified oils for the anaerobic bioremediation of chlorinated solvents are applicable to numerous other anaerobically biodegradable contaminants like nitrates, perchlorates, and energetics (e.g., RDX, TNT). The protocol presented in this document is intended to assist base managers and project engineers in: (1) determining if the emulsified oil process is appropriate for their site; and (2) designing and implementing this technology. This protocol also provides background information on the development and scientific basis of this technology (June 2006, 100 pages).
