The Group's Patent Pending Hybrid Energy Thermal Remediation (HETR) system provides a simple, cost effective, renewable energy based & sustainable option to tradition thermal remediation technologies. The HETR transforms and applies multiform energy to an individual, or multiple connected, points, well(s), or installations, by means of convective, conductive, and radiative heat transfer to an outer casing, which in turn thermally conducts heat to contaminated media in contact with the device, including soils, groundwater, and non-aqueous phase liquids. The HETR technology is well suited to thermal remediation applications targeting temperatures anywhere from 35 degrees C all the way up to 400 degrees C.
In various configurations, the HETR system can be designed to utilize variable energy reliance from either source, be it fuel combustion, or electric heating, and both energy systems can be configured and utilized in a grid-connected modality, partial grid connected modality, or entirely isolated from grid. Furthermore, this device allows differential heat application both longitudinally within the well and laterally across a wellfield, affording greater control of heat distribution than many traditional thermal technologies.
In all of it's variations, this technology significantly reduces the carbon footprint of thermal remediation projects, increases the efficacy of energy consumption and utilization, minimizes reliance on traditional energy sources requiring heavy infrastructure and helps circumvent many traditional utility availability constraints.
The Group's automated/programmable closed-loop groundwater recirculation systems can be designed to include renewable energy sources that allow these systems to be implemented completely off-grid, without the unreliable fuel based generator systems.
Integrating both solar energy and other alternative energy generation systems in the Heat Enhanced Recirculation System (HERS) technology, allows for 24-7 renewable energy generation from solid state devices with no moving parts so they are able to operate with minimal O&M and are perfectly suited for remote applications or urban settings alike.
The Group is currently working on bringing a new thermal remediation and renewable energy technology to market. This system is designed to first function as a renewable energy based high-temperature thermal remediation system, capable of reaching temperatures of 300 degrees C or higher and remediating a wide range of impacts from VOCs to PCBs and Pesticides. The system then transitions into a Permanent Renewable Energy Generation Plant, which reuses the infrastructure and energy from the remediation process with little additional infrastructure or modification needed.
Landfills, former Airfields, Military Bases, Ammunitions Testing Grounds, or other large open areas with existing contaminant plumes in the subsurface could be Thermally Remediated and redeveloped as a Renewable Energy Plant simultaneously, and at much lower cost than implementing either independently.
