Because soil vapor extraction (SVE) is an effective, economic, and environmentally benign technology to remediate soils contaminated by volatile and semivolatile organics, it has been widely used in the remediation of these soils. The objectives of this paper were to introduce the basic principle of SVE and general steps of constructing SVE engineering, discuss major impact factors on remediation efficiency of SVE technology, and describe three kinds of enhanced SVE technologies. Finally, study and application progress of SVE technologies in China was introduced.
