“Nice sustainability win”
Antea Group has created an innovative remediation technology that effectively and safely treats impacted soil and groundwater by creating a re-circulatory process with zero emissions and no combustion. The Enhanced Concentrating Oxygen Soil Vapor Extraction System (ECO-SVE) increases subsurface oxygen levels and biotic activity, thus accelerating site clean-up and reducing lifecycle remediation costs compared to conventional remediation systems.
“Really nice improvement to a difficult environmental challenge! This innovation can reduce the eco-impact of remediation in a cost-beneficial way…nice sustainability win,” noted a judge.
The ECO-SVE system is unique in that is has none of the following: volatile organic compounds, exhaust, combustion, heating elements, greenhouse gasses, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, or supplemental fuel. This zero emissions system can be used anywhere a traditional SVE system is used and can even replace existing SVE systems with typically minor well reconfiguration or peripheral well replacements.
Impressed with the ECO-SVE process, one judge stated, “This process can have a dramatic impact on the cost and effectiveness of cleanups nationwide involving contaminated soils. By eliminating air permitting requirements and improving the quality of the treated soils at a lower cost than conventional technologies, ECO-SVE provides a faster path to remediation and reuse of contaminated sites that could be redeveloped to create badly needed jobs in industrial areas.”
