Short description: This bulletin describes a CL:AIRE Technology Demonstration Project (TDP10) in which contaminated material from The Avenue in Chesterfield, Derbyshire was treated using thermal treatment. MEL Limited in conjunction with United Soils Recycling from the USA, undertook the remediation trial in 2001 to assess the suitability of Enhanced Thermal Conduction (ETC) technology to treat materials from the site. The objective of the trial was to demonstrate the applicability of thermal treatment for the remediation of the soils at The Avenue site. The success criteria related to how efficiently the technology could reduce levels of a broad range of contaminants at the site, whilst demonstrating a cost-effective alternative to landfill. This trial was funded by the national regeneration agency, English Partnerships, through the National Coalfields Programme's £104.5M remediation project for The Avenue site, being delivered by East Midlands Development Agency (emda).
