Combined Remedies

ISTR in Complex Geologic Settings with Highly Variable Permeabilities and High Groundwater Flux Zones

Complex geologies with highly permeable zones can cause significant challenges while heating the subsurface during in situ thermal treatment and those challenges pose a serious threat to your project’s success. It is critical to have a detailed conceptual site model (CSM) and a proper understanding of the site’s lithology before choosing the technologies and designing the remedy that will best address the contaminant(s), the site’s unique complexities, and the outcomes demanded by state and federal guidance.
In this webinar, thermal expert John LaChance discusses the type and nature of high permeability and complex geologic settings, how they affect thermal treatment, and examples of effective in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) designs in complex geologic settings.

Can Thermal Remediation Technologies be Combined at a Site?

Maybe you have a site with challenging geological features, and you’re trying to figure out if a thermal remediation technology can be used. Or perhaps you have a client who is on a tight schedule and needs to treat a source zone and a downgradient plume simultaneously to develop the site in a short amount of time.

What may come as a surprise is that while each individual thermal technology has its sweet spot, multiple technologies can be used safely at a site simultaneously to address contamination in complex geologies like silts, clays, sands, and fractured bedrock.

In this 30-min flash webinar VP of Technology, Steffen Griepke and Senior Technologist, Erin Hauber will reveal when it’s beneficial to combine thermal technologies to meet the site-specific goals. They will provide several examples of projects where thermal technologies have been successfully combined.

Join the discussion for insight on how and when to combine thermal technologies to treat sites with varied and complex conditions.  There will be time at the end for Q&A, so bring your questions about using thermal to remediate sites.

Can Thermal Remediation Be Used and Be Effective at Sites with High Groundwater Flux and Shallow Water Table?

Join us for an in-depth webinar exploring cutting-edge techniques in groundwater source zone contamination treatment. Dive deep into the challenges and potential of thermal remediation at sites with high groundwater flux rates. Discover how Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE) can be utilized effectively with Thermal Conductive Heating (TCH) or Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) to optimize heating in high-permeability and high groundwater velocity situations. 


However, thermal treatment of groundwater source zones is not without its challenges. Understand the design considerations and treatment system impacts on high flowing thermal sites, along with the change in energy demand associated with maintaining hydraulic control during the thermal remedy.  Equip yourself with the knowledge to navigate these challenges and implement efficient and cost-effective remediation strategies. 


Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from industry experts and enhance your understanding of groundwater source zone remediation techniques. Register today for our next webinar and stay on top of the latest trends and techniques in environmental management.
