Presentation Summary

Joseph Martinez, Director – South Texas Region at TSC Environmental (TSC), will be presenting on the use of RECLAMAX® soil remediation technology. RECLAMAX® utilizes aeration and chemical oxidation to remediate petroleum hydrocarbon impacted soils in the South Texas oil field. Utilizing this technology, petroleum hydrocarbon impacted soils can be remediated on-site without generating harmful biproducts. The system output averages 500 cubic yards of soil processed per day which is typically ready for testing and reuse within days. This technology offers many advantages including reduced time, cost, liability, and resource consumption. TSC will provide a technical overview of the treatment process and discuss system advantages and limitations.
