Abstract

The Panoche Facility is a hazardous waste landfill being remediated. Drum Burial Area V (DBA V) is a 5-acre section of the landfill that was active from 1977 to 1981 (IT [l])and received wastes in the following chemical categories: corrosive acids and caustics, flammable and combustible, water reactive, strong oxidizers and reducing agents, and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)- contaminated oils. (IT [1]) During the removal activity, the drum emissions were collected and treated before being released to the atmosphere. The challenge of this removal activity was to design a system that could collect volatile organic compounds (VOC)
