Introduction to ISTR – Part 1
Originally broadcast on Apr 19, 2022
In the last 20 years, thermal remediation has gained a reputation as one of the most effective approaches for addressing sites with hard-to-treat constituents; including everything from, VOCs, SVOCs and PAHs to MGP coal tar PCBs, dioxins and even PFAS. But to reliably and uniformly achieve site goals, the project has to be well engineered, with a clear understanding of…
- The geological setting
- Which contaminants are being addressed and where they are in the subsurface
- The estimated mass of constituents to be removed
- Which heating technologies are best suited for the site
- The timeframe available for the project
- What the remedial objectives are, and more.
In this first of two flash webinars, thermal experts Nikole Huard and Steffen Griepke will cover the basics of thermal remediation. They’ll explain the key removal mechanisms and how the three primary thermal technologies work and what constituents and lithologies they’re best suited to treat as well as the essential site information required to evaluate whether thermal remediation is a good fit and typical project timeframes.
There will be time for Q&A after each webinar, so be sure to bring all the questions about thermal remediation you’ve never had a chance to ask.
If you’re interested in gaining a basic understanding of thermal technology, this two-part webinar series is one you won’t want to miss.
