Webinar: Heat It Up: How High Temp Thermal Tackles Recalcitrant Chemicals
What do coal tar, PAHs, PCBs, pesticides, dioxins, PFAS and mercury all have in common?
They’re all recalcitrant chemicals that are hard to treat using traditional remediation methods. Sites with these contaminants are nearly unaffected even by thermal treatments reaching the boiling point of water. Luckily, high temperature thermal conductive heating (TCH) can reach temperatures of more than 300°C, high enough to address these difficult chemicals.
In this webinar, TerraTherm’s Steffen Griepke will discuss where high temperature thermal is applicable, what chemicals can be targeted and what results can be achieved. Different implementation approaches tailored to the site specific circumstances will be presented, and both in situ and ex situ case study examples will be provided. Steffen will draw on TerraTherm’s 25 years of experience working with high temp thermal projects to answer participant questions during the Q&A.
If you have interest in cleaning up some the most difficult chemicals out there, this is a webinar you don’t want to miss.
Thermal Rediation for Treatment of PFAS Source Areas
Per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) are known as forever chemicals because they are persistent in the environment and difficult to remove. Tackling these contaminants is feasible with the right technology. Thermal conductive heating (TCH) is an effective remediation solution for PFAS and other recalcitrant compounds. Recent laboratory studies conducted by TerraTherm partner Krüger have shown better than 99.99% removal of PFAS contaminants when simulating the TCH efficiency.
You know there’s more to project success than technology alone. Experience matters. TerraTherm’s Technology Director with guest speaker Søren Eriksen, Chemical Engineer from Krüger. They addresses the literature background as it relates to thermal removal of PFAS, describes the conducted lab testing and results. They also touch on the fate of the thermally treated PFAS compounds in the process, and presents how a field application will be implemented.
