Abstract:

The patented Low Temperature Thermal Treatment LT3 System was previously proven to be successful in treating soils contaminated with volatile organic compounds and petroleum hydrocarbons. This demonstration broadened the applicability to include soils contaminated with aviation fuel and other halogenated solvents. Several test were conducted to verify the effectiveness of the LT3 system. While meeting all goal cleanup objectives, a processing rate of 20,000 lbhr was demonstrated with a projected LT3 System processing cost of 86ton. A number of system changes and process improvements are recommended. The system proved to be an efficient, cost-effective, and commercially available remediation alternative for decontaminating soils.
