A protective cover shields a FlexHeater site at Eielson Air Force Base near North Pole, Alaska, where TRS performed PFAS remediation in an ex-situ soil stockpile.
We received an early present this year in North Pole, Alaska, just a sleigh ride away from Eielson Air Force Base (Eielson AFB), where TRS Group (TRS) applied its patented FlexHeater® thermal remediation services to remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from an ex-situ soil stockpile.
While the weather outside was frightful, with temperatures as low as -39° Celsius, the stockpile was at an average of 414°C with a maximum temperature of over 480°C, an ideal range for PFAS removal efficiencies of 99.998%.
In 2020, the Department of Defense (DOD) awarded TRS and its co-performers three PFAS treatment projects funded by the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), two of which focused on thermal desorption of PFAS from soil. Paragon Professional Services, LLC led the Eielson AFB project with Brown University and TRS as co-performers.
With peace and joy,
