Short description: www.cluin.org/products/thermal/ IST treatment includes technologies that involve steam injection, electrical resistance heating (ERH), conductive heating, radio- frequency (RF) heating, and hot air injection. These technologies treat chlorinated solvents, non-chlorinated volatile organic compounds (VOC), semivolatile VOCs (SVOC), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), oils and petroleum products, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), and wood preserving compounds in ground water and soil. IST technologies heat the subsurface and destroy or enhance the removal of contaminants, including those present as non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL).
