Thermal Remedy of Fractured Crystalline Rock
Investigating and remediating fractured rock can be a lot more complex than treating a porous media like sand or clay. This webinar will present information and data from projects where thermal remediation was successfully used to clean up sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous bedrock. The removal mechanisms as well as challenges for using thermal remediation technologies in fractured rock will also be reviewed, along with technology applicability and costs.
Thermal Treatment: A Reliable Option For Your Bedrock Source Zone
Treating fractured bedrock is complex, and effective remedial options are limited. Due to the fractured nature of rock, contamination can migrate deep, and pathways out of the bedrock system are limited.
One of the most effective and reliable methods of treating fractured bedrock is to use thermal technologies.
In this webinar, presenters Steffen Griepke, Technology Director at TerraTherm and Niels Ploug, Product Manager at Krüger will discuss the treatment of bedrock source zones, including:
- The challenges of removing volatile organic compounds (VOC) from fractured rock
- The pros and cons of the most common thermal treatment technologies in bedrock settings
- Design considerations and field implementation challenges
The presentation will be peppered with examples and results from the many thermal sites successfully treated by the combined TerraTherm and Krüger teams. Steffen and Niels will also share highlights from a recently completed project—the world’s deepest thermal remediation project of crystalline rock, treated to a total depth of 170 ft.
