To better understand the removal efficiencies of our heating technologies, TRS conducts laboratory testing on emerging and difficult to remediate contaminants. This research has led to patented thermal solutions for miscible compounds, such as 1,4-dioxane and tetrahydrofuran, and PFAS.
Current Lab Research
This research is led by Emily Crownover, Managing Principal Engineer.
- PFAS thermal desorption evaluation (peer-reviewed article published in Remediation Journal)
- From Research and Development to PFAS Project Implementation (newsletter article)
Emily Crownover leads a tour at Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Alaska, where TRS is using its thermal conduction heating technology on PFAS containing ex situ soil stockpiles.
