By Q. Hilbert, A. Vandekerckhove, H. SAADAOUI, J. HAEMERS - HAEMERS Technologies J. Chibleur, J. Leplat - Biogénie In-Situ and Ex-Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD and ESTD) are a technology based on thermal conduction that can effectively treat organic contaminants, independently of large soil heterogeneity. One of its applications is for contaminated properties in urban areas and under existing buildings. The main principle of the technology resides in installing a network of steel pipes that act as a air/soil heat exchanger to heat [...]
Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in the environment: Origins and feasibility in thermal desorptionadmin
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) came into use in 1950’s and since then have been used in numerous industrial and commercial applications. PFAS comprises a large group of compounds (> 6.000) consisting of at least a hydrophobic alkyl chain of varying length . This hydrophobic variety can be completely fluorinated (perfluorinated alkyl substances) or partly fluorinated with at least two fully fluorinated carbons (polyfluorinated alkyl substances). Compared to the binding energy of C-C bond (347 kJ/mol), the C-F bond (439 [...]
