Like soil vapor extraction, air sparging uses a vacuum to extract the vapors. , benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene, and xylene [BTEX]), because they readily transfer from the dissolved to the gaseous phase, but is less applicable to diesel fuel and kerosene. When air is pumped underground, the chemicals evaporate faster, which makes them easier to remove. Methane can be used as an amendment to the sparged air to enhance co-metabolism of chlorinated organics. Soil vapor extraction and air sparging are often used at the same time to clean u p both soil and groundwater.
