dc.description.abstract This paper describes the soil remediation techniques that were employed at five bulk petroleum storage depots across southern Africa and the results of the remediation process. The different sites were remediated using up to date technologies, in as timeous a manner as possible. The remediation trains that were employed were specifically designed for the specific site, based on available technologies and products. The paper takes a case study approach and describes site by site the characteristics of the site, the areas of identified contamination to be remediated and the type of remediation train that was implemented. In most cases soil samples were taken before, during and after the remediation process in order to assess the success of the remediation plan. The sites were remediated through a commercial remediation company and thus a number of limiting factors were imposed, mostly due to budget and availability of technology constraints. However it is shown that in spite of these constraints, the effective remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated petroleum storage depots in southern Africa is possible. en
