Indirect Thermal Desorption

Staff checking computer screen, ITD and staff member checking quality of recovered oil

The indirect thermal desorption (ITD) process is used to treat organically contaminated hazardous and non hazardous solid and sludge wastes using a combination of techniques to recover organic fractions and in doing so rendering the remaining residue suitable for either re-use, recycling or disposal via appropriate highly engineered landfill installations.   

Also, the unit can treat a broad range of organic contaminants such PCBs and PAHs to organic solvents, as well as oils and petroleum products.
