Short description: This project report describes the successful pilot trial of low temperature thermal desorption (LTTD) technology as part of a process to assess the feasibility of full scale LTTD clean up of contaminated soil at a chemical works. 
Long description: Approximately 38 tonnes of soil contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons was treated by the 'Thermal Soil Remediation Unit' (SRU). The purpose of this report is to describe the site conditions, provide an objective assessment of the performance of the SRU technology under pilot trial conditions, and extrapolate costs to full scale clean up of the site.
