Short description: ISCO is the process of injecting oxidants and coamendments into the subsurface to chemically convert hazardous contaminants to nonhazardous or less toxic compounds that are more stable, less mobile, or inert. ISCO is especially useful in treating NAPLs and can be applied to contaminants that include chlorinated solvents, non-chlorinated VOCs, SVOCs, petroleum products, PAHs, PCBs, explosives and propellants, and pesticides. Commonly used oxidizing agents include permanganate (either sodium or potassium), Fenton’s reagent (hydrogen peroxide and iron catalyst), hydrogen peroxide, and ozone.
