Also known as ‘slurping’, this is an in-situ technique in which a multiphase process is simultaneously applied via a single well, to remove liquid- or vapour-based contaminants from groundwater or soil:

  • Vacuum extraction/recovery removes free product along with minimal groundwater
  • Vapour extraction removes volatile contaminants
  • The increased oxygen levels allow bioventing to take place, enhancing biodegradation of contaminants.

This technique is particularly appropriate where it is important that water table fluctuations are minimised.
