This presentation will provide an overview of the scientific principles behind Self-Sustaining Treatment for Active Remediation (STAR), and summarize the five years of proof-of-concept research that has been successfully conducted to date.

In addition, this presentation will provide the design and results of the first in situ STAR pilot study. The in situ pilot study involved the application of the technology at a former cresol manufacturing facility in New Jersey and was designed to test STAR at a large scale and under saturated conditions (i.e., below ground surface and below the water table).
