The article focuses on the self-sustaining treatment for active remediation (STAR) which has a potential use in remediation of manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites affected by non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs). It states that the treatment was developed around the principle of NAPL smoldering. It says that it is being tested for the treatment of chlorinated jet fuels, pesticides, and solvents at the University of Western Ontario and the University of Edinburgh.
