In Situ Thermal Treatment Technologies: Lessons Learned

The purpose of this paper is to convey useful information gained from approximately 10 years of development and deployment of in situ thermal treatment (ISTT) technologies.

This paper is the result of a series of in‐depth interviews with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) and On‐Scene Coordinators (OSCs) and with ISTT vendors whose experience extends beyond federal response action sites to include state‐regulated cleanups and Brownfields/voluntary cleanups, as well as international projects.
