Glossary entry:Thermally Enhanced Recovery (EURODEMO)
Meaning in EUGRIS: Thermally enhanced recovery is an in situ treatment process that uses heat to increase the volatilization rate of organics and facilitate extraction. Volatilized contaminants are typically removed from the vadose zone using soil vapor extraction. Specific types of thermally enhanced recovery techniques include radio frequency heating, conductive heating, steam heating, in situ steam stripping, hot air injection, dynamic underground stripping, in situ thermal desorption, and electrical resistance heating. Thermally enhanced recovery is usually applied to contaminated soil but may also be applied to groundwater.
