TerraTherm, Inc. was awarded a 2007 Business Achievement Award/Project Merit:Remediation and Restoration Award by the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) for the successful completion of a major in situ thermal remediation project in fractured rock. The 2007 awards will be presented at EBJ's 6th annual Environmental Industry Summit in Coronado, California on February 20, 2008.
EBJ awarded TerraTherm the following Project Merit Award:
TerraTherm, for completing a major remediation project in the Southeast using its proprietary In-Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD) technology to treat dense non-aqueous-phase liquids (DNAPLs) in fractured rock. The goal was to remove trichloroethane (TCE) from the upper 75 feet of an 87-foot treatment zone and achieve mean TCE concentrations of less than 60 micrograms per kilogram (µg/kg). Pretreatment concentrations had been 81 million µg/kg. Using ISTD, which combines thermal conduction heating with vapor recovery, TerraTherm treated the site for a period of 120 days, achieving temperatures at the boiling point of water throughout the treatment zone and removing 12,000 lbs. of VOCs. The firm says that it achieved its cleanup goals with energy costs of only $12 per cubic yard of soil treated.
TerraTherm, Inc. is a worldwide leader in the development and
implementation of in situ thermal remediation of source zones and
hazardous waste. We design, build and operate projects from concept
to closure, using Thermal Conduction Heating (TCH), Steam Enhanced
Extraction (SEE) and Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH). With offices
in Fitchburg, MA, Keene, CA, and Atlanta, GA, and licensees such
as Kruger A/S (Denmark and Sweden), AIG Engineering, Ltd. (UK),
and SheGoTec (Japan), we offer services worldwide. For more information,
