GeoPro Talks: Ex-Situ Thermal Desorption of Highly- Impacted Mercury Soils in an Urban Area

In-Situ and Ex-Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD and ESTD) are technologies based on thermal conduction that can effectively treat organic contaminants, independently of large soil heterogeneity. One of its applications is for contaminated properties in urban areas and under existing buildings. The main principle of the technology resides in installing a network of steel pipes acting […]

GeoPro Talks: CFB Comox Firefighter Training Facility PFAS Novel Source Control (with 3-year update)

SLR’s 2021/2022 award winning CFB Comox project implemented novel in-situ and ex-situ PFAS management methods (amendment and thermal treatment, respectively). To reduce PFAS concentrations in downstream site surface water, the highest concentration materials were targeted for management. This presentation will introduce project design and provide an update on environmental conditions three years after implementation.
