LAB DEVELOPS NOVEL METHOD TO CLEAN GASOLINE SPILLS

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a process to remove underground gasoline at leak or spill sites. The dynamic stripping process includes heating and steam cleaning soil and was discussed earlier this month at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. Kent Udell of the University of California at Berkeley and university colleagues developed the dynamic underground stripping process by adding vacuum extraction to the steam injection method used
