Contaminant Types

In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) techniques will treat just about any organic compound, including:

  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and furans (PCDD/Fs), better known as simply Dioxins
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), often present in creosote at wood treatment sites, and coal tar at former Manufactured Gas Plant sites
  • Trichloroethene (TCE), tetrachloroethene (PCE), 1,2-dichloroethene (1,2-DCE), trichloroethanes (TCA), and other halogenated hydrocarbons, often referred to as chlorinated solvents
  • Pesticides and herbicides
  • Petroleum, petroleum products and their volatile constituents including benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes (BTEX), and methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE)
  • Any other volatile or semi-volatile hydrocarbon
  • Dense and light non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs and LNAPLs)
  • Nearly any other organic compounds or combination of organic compounds

Mercury, a volatile metal whose boiling point is within the PCB range, can also be treated by appropriate use of ISTR techniques.
