Rapid Remediation

The ET-DSP application of convective heating, accomplished by injecting water at controlled rates into the ends of the electrodes where the electrical field has the highest density, makes ET-DSP a far more effective heating technology than other forms of electro-thermal heating. Without the benefits of convective heat transfer, conventional remediation processes are limited by retardation of the contaminant in-situ, especially in fine sediments and clays. Consequently, primary technologies must be operated for long periods of time and may not achieve clean-up standards in low-permeability soils or where the vapour pressure of the contaminant is low. To date, Mc2 has successfully implemented ET-DSP on over 60 sites achieving clean up goals in each. In all cases, a significant reduction in contaminant was achieved within a period ranging from 3 to 8 months, vs. the primary electro-thermal heating methods of potentially years.

Measurable Results

Once an ET-DSP system is installed and operating, it is largely self-automated. Operations and project progress can be monitored and adjustments made remotely via a proprietary and secure, web-enabled interface. Through this custom programmed interface, clients and project personnel have immediate access to accurate, real-time, subsurface data. In addition to web-enabled interfaces, McMillan-McGee has developed an Apple iPad compatible application to remotely control and monitor a project’s operation in the field. The device will allow operators to control power to each individual electrode and will relay real-time project information to operators including a summary of the current state of a project (excepted and current project duration, current input energy, power, power density, average temperature and water injected and extracted). A detailed well field map includes digiTAMtemperature profiles for multiple depths and days.

Training & Support

McMillan-McGee provides operation, optimization, maintenance, and project management for all ET-DSP projects to ensure proper site selection, installation and safety. Our operations team consists of individuals possessing an intimate knowledge of the North American and International environmental markets, engineering, geology, hydrology and contaminant extraction. As world leaders in the electrical heating of soil and groundwater, Mc2’s technology board is comprised of leading experts in applied electromagnetics and electrical heating of porous media. Additionally, our team of electrical engineers is led by Dr. Bruce McGee, the world’s foremost authority on electrical heating and thermal remediation technology. ET-DSP technology has been used on numerous sites across 3 continents and in each case, all remedial objectives were achieved on time and on budget. In fact, most ET-DSP sites have been cleaned to non-detect status and “No Further Action” (NFA) closure was achieved.

McMillan-McGee is a leading technology company that empowers its clients to clean dirty dirt. Every day, companies leverage our proven, proprietary tools and technologies to manage remediation projects of all shapes and sizes. Aptly referred to in the industry as Mc2, our team of Einsteins is singularly dedicated to finding rapid, resourceful solutions to complex environmental challenges.
