Teterboro, NJ – The Biggest In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD) Site in the World – Remediation Completed!

The Teterboro Landing Site in New Jersey was historically used for manufacturing precision aerospace components. The site is located adjacent to Teterboro Airport and less than 10 miles from Manhattan and New York City. TerraTherm was contracted in November 2011 to remediate an area that was impacted with Chlorinated Volatile Organic Compounds (CVOCs). The total volume of the In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD) treatment area was 122,300 cubic yards. The thermal remediation system designed, built and operated by TerraTherm included a wellfield with a total of 907 Thermal Conduction Heater (TCH) wells, 35 Multi-Phase Extraction (MPE) wells, 116 horizontal Vapor … Continue reading

Drilling and Well Installation at In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD) Sites

Once all of the modeling, treatability studies, and design work have been completed, it’s on to the next step for TerraTherm and time to mobilize our staff, resources, and equipment to the field to install the thermal wellfield. This is an essential task that must be done precisely in order to ensure thermal success. It does not matter how well the site was modeled or designed; if the installation is not done correctly it can lead to issues with thermal treatment operations and potentially jeopardize the success of the project. Plan of Attack: When the wellfield layout has been finalized, … Continue reading
