Heat It Up: How High Temp Thermal Tackles Recalcitrant Chemicals
Originally broadcast on Jul 30, 2021
What do coal tar, PAHs, PCBs, pesticides, dioxins, PFAS and mercury all have in common?
They’re all recalcitrant chemicals that are hard to treat using traditional remediation methods. Sites with these contaminants are nearly unaffected even by thermal treatments reaching the boiling point of water. Luckily, high temperature thermal conductive heating (TCH) can reach temperatures of more than 300°C, high enough to address these difficult chemicals.
In this webinar, TerraTherm’s Steffen Griepke will discuss where high temperature thermal is applicable, what chemicals can be targeted and what results can be achieved. Different implementation approaches tailored to the site specific circumstances will be presented, and both in situ and ex situ case study examples will be provided. Steffen will draw on TerraTherm’s 25 years of experience working with high temp thermal projects to answer participant questions during the Q&A.
If you have interest in cleaning up some the most difficult chemicals out there, this is a webinar you don’t want to miss.
