The High Value of Thermal Treatability Studies

Laboratory treatability studies are often one of the first logical steps when considering In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) at a given site. In relation to the full-scale source remediation, treatability studies can be a wise and relatively low cost investment in a proof of concept. You might begin with a lab study if you have a unique mix of target compounds in the treatment area, or a challenging geological matrix. Or perhaps certain stakeholders need some extra “convincing” that ISTR will work at your site.  A study performed on actual site materials can quantitatively demonstrate the effectiveness of various thermal … Continue reading

How to Determine if Thermal Remediation is a Good Fit for your Site

More people than ever are choosing Thermal technologies to remediate a wide variety of sites these days.  While quite a few in the industry have gained experience in selecting sites for thermal, many are still learning about it and have questions about the criteria that make a site a great fit. So, this blog post is intended to provide a few fundamental questions to help you determine if thermal is right for your site: Are the Contaminants right for Thermal Remediation? If they are organic compounds or mercury, Thermal technologies are applicable.  For instance, we have had 100% success in … Continue reading
