Webinar: Steam Enhanced Extraction – The tricky thermal solution for permeable sites

In case you missed our last installment of “Inside In Situ Thermal Remediation”, TerraTherm’s informational webinar series, you can find a recorded version here: “Steam Enhanced Extraction – The tricky thermal solution for permeable sites” Presented by TerraTherm’s Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Gorm Heron. Description: This presentation focuses on the oldest In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) technology, Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE).  It is vastly different from the other ISTR methods used, in that steam is generated above-ground and injected through wells, heating the ground while displacing fluids as the steam zone grows.  Since steam tends to … Continue reading

Dwindling Water Resources and TerraTherm’s Role

After the air we must breathe, water is the most essential resource on the planet, but one that is becoming increasingly scarce in many places. How can that be, when nearly three quarters of Earth is covered with water? During a seminar that my former Ph.D. advisor, Daniel Hillel presented at UMass-Amherst during a rare visit he made there this week, he focused on the huge challenges we face as the world’s population grows and our available water resources, finite to begin with, become degraded or less abundant. His topic resonated with me as an environmental scientist, and as a … Continue reading
