Title:X*TRAX (TM) Laboratory Treatability Study of Jet Fuel Contaminated Soil from Chanute Air Force Base Near Rantoul, Illinois

Abstract:Chemical Waste Management, Inc. (CWM) conducted a laboratory X*TRAX treatability study on a fire training area jet fuel contaminated soil from Chanute Air Force Base (AFB) near Rantoul, Illinois. The CWM X *TRAX patented process is an innovative thermal desorption technology which volatilizes organic compounds by indirectly heating the feed material in an inert atmosphere rotary dryer and condenses the organics separate from the remaining solids. The feed material chemical concentrations were significantly reduced by the X *TRAX process. The treated soil does not exhibit the federal toxicity characteristic for benzene. Removal of oil and grease and all volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds detected exceeded 99 percent. The cost for treatment with the X*TRAX process is considerably lower than for treatment using incineration. The Chanute AFB jet fuel contaminated fire training pit soil is a suitable candidate for X *TRAX treatment. In general, the X *TRAX process is a suitable and economical alternative treatment technology for other petroleum contaminated soils in Illinois.
