Abstract After developing the radio-wave technique for various conditions in laboratory-scale and technical plant-scale experiments, field tests in combination with biodegradation and soil vapor extraction were carried out at three sites: (i) a bioremediation facility for ex situ cleaning of soil, (ii) in situ remediation of contamination at a former storage facility for organic solvents, and (iii) a polluted soil under a former petrol station. Various electrode arrangements such as parallel plates, rod arrays, and coaxial antenna were applied in order to meet the site-specific requirements optimally. Soil temperatures between 35 and 100 °C were established. The successful tests gave much insight into the engineering, physical, biological, and chemical aspects of radio-wave application. General conclusions on the appropriateness and competitiveness of the radio-wave method as well as on preferred application fields are drawn.
