How are VOCs Treated Using Thermal Remediation?

Originally broadcast on Apr 12, 2023

Add heat to remediate!  Sounds simple enough, but do you ever wonder how raising the temperature can be so effective at removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from soil and groundwater, even from difficult-to-remediate low-permeability silts and clays?

TerraTherm technology experts Nikole Huard and John LaChance introduce the primary thermal technologies and mechanisms responsible for this amazing feat.  Key site information useful in evaluating whether In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) is the best option for your site will also be covered.  They  review:

  • Important design do’s and don’ts for a successful remedy,
  • Common ISTR myths, and
  • Typical costs for ISTR at a VOC site.

There were interesting questions at the end of this session so make sure to listen all the way through. This recorded flash webinar is 30 minutes.
