Treating a floating layer with Thermopile
Thermopile©, (patented by Deep-Green) is a new thermal treatment technology which, without the need for excavation, uses the desorption of volatile products from polluted soils. The technique uses the combustion gases (in quasi closed-loop gas circuit) to heat the soil and recuperate the contaminant. The circuit consists of a unit of combustion, a fan, a network of pipes and a purge. The technique has already been successfully applied on several urban and industrial sites. Thermopile© in-situ was recently used on the sites of D’Ieteren in Brussels for the treatment of a floating layer of 50cm thick (on average) located at a depth of 2.5m. The area of the zone treated is ~5m2. The achieved results are very promising.
