Common Treatment Train for Explosives
In general, no single technology can remediate an entire site. Several treatment technologies are usually combined at a single site to form what is known as a treatment train. A system diagram of a common treatment train for explosives is illustrated below. Explosive contaminated soil is first excavated from the site and transported to a windrow composting site. During windrow composting, contaminated soil is placed in a pile under a protective shelter and mixed with readily degradable carbon sources by a mechanical mixing vehicle.
