Abstract

Carbon disulphide (CS2) is a contaminant of concern at a significant number of US EPA Superfund sites, and is found at an increasing number of contaminated land and groundwater sites. The risk assessment and remediation Of CS2 therefore requires a wider appreciation for the potential occurrences and what remediation options are available when identified as a contaminant of concern. This paper reviews the sources, risks and remediation options that are currently known for CS2 contaminated soil and groundwater.
