Abstract
SmartStripping is an innovative on-site process for green remediation that reduces concentrations of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOC, sVOC) from unsaturated soils and groundwater. It differs from other technologies as it generates a "closed circular air flow” in the underground that reduces contaminants concentrations, cutting out environmental impacts, as it doesn’t need groundwater extraction, water discharge, gas emissions or introduction of chemicals.
