Ecologia Srl has recently completed the installation of several heating and vapour recovery wells at a site in central Italy. Ecologia is working in partnership with TRS a leading US in-situ thermal provider to carry out a field pilot trial in advance of full-scale remediation. The drilling process was initially hampered by difficult ground conditions, but this was overcome once the most appropriate drilling protocol was implemented. The treatment area is now being capped with an impermeable liner prior to installation of thermal well heating elements and off gas recovery system pipework. The pilot trial is scheduled to commence in the next few weeks once the installation of the heating wells and dual phase recovery system has been completed.
