In Situ Thermal Remediation - Part 1
This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the appropriate screening and selection of in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) technologies, including steam enhanced extraction injection, electrical resistivity heating, and thermal conductive heating.
A significant number of sites are contaminated with high level of organic contaminants. These contaminated sites include hundreds of Federal installations and thousands of private facilities. The contaminants in these sites, especially non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL), have been difficult to treat with conventional technologies such as groundwater extraction, bioremediation and soil vapor extraction. More aggressive technologies have been sought to address these conditions. These technologies include in situ chemical oxidation, surfactant/solvent flushing, and ISTR methods. ISTR methods represent the most aggressive and effective of these techniques.
This 9 PDH online course is applicable to environmental engineers, geologists, hydrogeologist and soil scientists who are interested in improving their knowledge on the appropriate use of in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) technologies.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with site characterization data necessary for the screening and designing of remediation systems using the three ISTR technologies (TCH, ERH, SEE)
- Gaining a general overview of multiphase flow and multi-component mass transfer in the subsurface and how elevated temperatures can enhance these processes for the removal of contaminants
- Learning about technology screening and feasibility studies for ISTR
- Understanding bench and pilot scale studies to determine if ISTR is an appropriate means to remediate a site
