This is the fourth in the 2021 Monthly Online Presentation Series!
Vice President, Sales & Marketing
Emily Crownover, Ph.D
TRS Group, Inc.
Since its commercial introduction just over twenty years ago, practitioners have implemented in situ thermal remediation at about 300 sites, removing organic compounds in all types of subsurface matrices, including clay, sand, silt, and sedimentary and metamorphic bedrock. Typical concentration reductions exceed 99%.
The presentation will cover the technology fundamentals, selection process and applications of the primary heating technologies:
- Electrical resistance heating (ERH) – for evaporating volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Steam enhanced extraction (SEE) – for extracting light non-aqueous liquids (LNAPL)
- Thermal conduction heating (TCH) – for volatilizing VOCs and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs)
Interestingly, we can apply TCH at temperatures to volatilize per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). DOD’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) has awarded TRS Group and its teaming partners three PFAS remediation projects: in situ and ex situ soil remediation and cleaning aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) fire suppression systems.
Please join us for an exciting evening event!
It's free, just register using the button above and you will receive a link to the Zoom Meeting for that evening.
The presentation will be followed by a geologic trivia question and answer activity for those who would like to participate!
