  • In-Situ thermal treatment of MGP waste and creosote

    In-Situ thermal treatment of MGP waste and creosote

    Abstract: Remediation of coal tar at former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites, and creosote associated with wood preservative sites is challenging due to the viscous nature of the dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) and the modest solubility and ...

  • Thermal treatment of thick peat layers – DNAPL removal and shrinkage

    Thermal treatment of thick peat layers – DNAPL removal and shrinkage

    Abstract A PCE DNAPL source zone was treated using thermal conduction heating combined with multi-phase extraction. Thick peat layers, even when contaminated with PCE DNAPL, were remediated to average soil PCE concentrations of 0.17 mg/kg (99.6% ...
