Abstract

A solidification treatment process for soils that are contaminated with hydrocarbons at levels of 0.5% and 3.0% benzene by weight is investigated. The experimental specimens consisted of concrete mixtures in which 40% of the sand was replaced with the contaminated soil. The test results showed that the effective diffusivity was reduced by three to five orders of magnitude over the molecular diffusivities in unfixed contaminated soil used as a control. It was observed that the presence of fly ash in the concrete decreases the effective diffusivity by about an order of magnitude.
