Remediation Technologies Screening Matrix, Version 4.0  
Table of Contents


Sites where nonhalogenated VOCs may be found include burn pits, chemical manufacturing plants or disposal areas, contaminated marine sediments, disposal wells and leach fields, electroplating/metal finishing shops, firefighting training areas, hangars/aircraft maintenance areas, landfills and burial pits, leaking collection and system sanitary lines, leaking storage tanks, radioactive/mixed waste disposal areas, oxidation ponds/lagoons, paint stripping and spray booth areas, pesticide/herbicide mixing areas, solvent degreasing areas, surface impoundments, and vehicle maintenance areas. Potentially applicable remediation technologies are presented in Table 2-1. Typical nonhalogenated VOCs (excluding fuels, BTEX, and gas phase contaminants) encountered at many sites include the following:

1-butanol Cyclohexanone Methyl isobutyl ketone
4-Methyl-2-pentanone Ethanol n-Butyl alcohol
Acetone Ethyl acetate Styrene
Acrolein Ethyl ether Tetrahydrofuran
Acrylonitrile Isobutanol Vinyl acetate
Aminobenzene Methanol  
Carbon disulfide Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK)  

*Please note that fuels, BTEX, and gas phase contaminants are located in section 2.7.
