Emulsion based recovery of multicomponent hydrocarbons using nonionic surfactants.

Baniahmad, Parnian.

Abstract: Remediation of source zones containing non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) often involves aggressive mass removal to reduce mass discharge and create favorable conditions for follow-on treatments. One option for aggressive mass removal is the use of surfactants. Surfactants can aid subsurface remediation through three primary mechanisms - solubilization, mobilization or emulsification.
