Intro to Thermal Remediation

Thermal 101: What Is Thermal Remediation And How Does It Work?

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, everything from VOCs, SVOCs and PAHs to MGP coal tar and dioxins. But to 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 webinar, thermal experts Nikole Stone and Steffen Griepke will cover the basics of thermal remediation. They’ll explain how the three primary thermal technologies work, what constituents and lithologies they’re best suited to treat, typical project timeframes, and a few real-life examples. There will also be time for a Q&A, 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 is a webinar you won’t want to miss.

Fast, Reliable Remediation: Why Thermal Should Be On Your Short List For Redevelopment Projects

Redevelopment projects can revitalize business districts and create new opportunities for local communities, but they are not without their challenges. Before being fully utilized, many sites must first address long-ignored soil and groundwater contamination.

This is no easy task under normal circumstances, but redevelopment projects often have sensitive schedules that can cost the site owner and developer millions of dollars if they aren’t met—or result in the project being abandoned altogether. Remediation technologies and strategies that can achieve site goals quickly and reliably are critical to project success.

In this webinar, thermal expert John LaChance will discuss how thermal technologies can quickly and efficiently remediate contaminated sites for reuse. He’ll dive into some of the challenges specific to former industrial sites, as well as strategies for overcoming them. John will also share real-life examples of using in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) to clean up impacted properties for sale and reuse.

Introduction to ISTR – Part 1

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.

In Situ Thermal Remediation of VOCs

In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) has a reputation as one of the most effective approaches for addressing sites with hard-to-treat constituents, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs). Want to learn more? This flash webinar will help you understand how ISTR works to accomplish your cleanup goals.

TerraTherm technology experts Erin Hauber and John LaChance will cover the basics of thermal remediation and explain how the three primary ISTR technologies treat VOCs, including BTEX. They’ll also review:

  • Key contaminant removal mechanisms
  • Important design do’s and don’ts for a successful remedy
  • Common ISTR myths
  • Indication of typical costs

There will be time for questions at the end,  so bring the thermal remediation questions you’ve never had a chance to ask. This flash webinar is scheduled for 30 minutes.

Low Temperature Thermal – The Sustainable Thermal Remediation Approach

“Thermal” and “sustainable” in the same sentence?!

Yes! Although most often associated with a high demand for resources and infrastructure, thermal remediation can be accomplished sustainably.

In this flash webinar, John LaChance and Erin Hauber will explain how low-temperature thermal technology can address your challenges in an environmentally and economically friendly manner. They will describe how the technology works, and the remediation mechanisms targeted by low-temperature thermal. They’ll also cover which contaminants of concern (COCs) are most suited for this approach, costs, and timeframe.

John and Erin will answer questions during a Q&A at the end of the presentation, so be sure to submit yours during registration.

Why Do Thermal Remediation Projects Cost So Much?

Ever wonder why using thermal remediation technology costs so much? Are owners of thermal remediation companies driving around in fancy cars and vacationing on the Riviera (or fill in the blank for some other nice spot)?

As hard as it may be to believe, the answer is no. In this two-part flash webinar series, our experts will delve into the details that determine in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) project costs, and how those costs can be managed.

In part one, TerraTherm experts Erin Hauber and John LaChance will explain all the moving parts that go into the delivery and implementation of a successful ISTR project. They’ll pull the curtain back and break down the components of a thermal project (drilling, surface cover, vapor and liquid extraction, manifold piping, treatment system, power supply, and design, operations, engineering support, etc.) and how site conditions (COCs, depth of treatment, geology, groundwater flux, and site access limitations) affect design approaches and costs.

You’ll also have a chance to ask your most burning questions about thermal remediation costs, so be sure to register and attend!

How to Manage and Optimize the Cost of Your ISTR Project

Why do thermal remediation projects cost so much? And is there anything that can be done to manage those costs?

In part one of this webinar series, TerraTherm experts Erin Hauber and John LaChance explained how in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) costs are determined.

In this second, 30-minute installment, they shared ways to manage the cost of ISTR and discussed how decisions made during the site characterization, technology selection, procurement, and design phases of a project impact costs. They also covered…

  • Establishing the treatment area and interval
  • Soil and water cleanup goals (e.g., what happens when the cleanup goal within the treatment area is much less than concentrations remaining on the outside)
  • Starting mass estimates
  • Subsurface vs. above grade wellfield completions
  • Conservative temperature performance goals (e.g., every sensor must achieve 100°C).

Erin and John provided guidance on how to compare competing proposals to identify the best technical approach and overall value, giving you and your client the highest probability of success for the minimum cost.
