What is TEVET Technology?
Thermally enhanced vapor extraction technology (TEVET) is a process that removes VOCs, SVOCs, chlorinated solvents, (BTEX, benzene, toluene, etc.) from soil. We perform this technology on-site and at low temperatures. Utilizing heated air, volatile contaminants are removed from soil piles via vapor extraction piping. The contaminants are then passed into either the 1,800 degree burn chamber or individual carbon units, which capture the chlorinated compounds.
Benefits of TEVET
- TEVET is a fraction of the cost of traditional transportation and disposal for hazardous soils
- TEVET is a quick process, handling up to 1000 tons of soil a week per unit
- No soil has to leave the site, ensuring that you will never miss a Manifest or Bill of Lading. The treated soil can yield a tremendous cost savings, as it can also be used as backfill at the site.
- Treatment objectives are typically accomplished in four to six days per pile, depending upon the contaminate. The TEVET process has been approved for use in various states, including Massachusetts and New Jersey. Since the TEVET process is self-contained, most state agencies require no extensive permitting.
