Groundwater contamination by MTBE from underground storage tanks.

Project Details


The aim of the project has been to make a framework project proposal that outlines how future projects can identify whether methyl tert. butyl ether (MTBE) leaking from underground storage tanks is a significant threat to groundwater. It is suggested to: 1) Perform investigations in both sandy aquifers and in moraine clay and chalk aquifers to reflect Danish conditions, and 2) That the field investigations are supplemented by laboratory investigations under controlled conditions.
