Full-scale Implementation of STAR Technology

Full-scale implementation of STAR at a coal tar-impacted site in Newark, New Jersey is underway. Field crews are currently targeting the deep sand unit located up to 35 feet below the water table and operations will continue through 2016. Six ignition point "cells" are being operated simultaneously which are capable of destroying coal tar at a rate of approximately one ton per day. Please contact us if you're interested in taking a tour of the STAR operations at the site.

STAR Pre-Design Evaluations

STAR Pre-Design Evaluations

The STAR technology was recently field tested at two sites. The first test (Michigan) targeted both Diesel Range Organic (DRO) and Gasoline Range Organic (GRO) contaminated soils while the second test (Virginia) targeted Navy Special Fuel Oil (NSFO). The GRO Pre-Design Evaluation in Michigan was unique in that it successfully demonstrated the use of a surrogate fuel (emulsified vegetable oil) to support the combustion of these high volatility compounds.

Examining Limitations and Defining Success of Smoldering Combustion (STAR)

A recent article published in Remediation Journal examines the limitations and defines the success of STAR smoldering technology across a wide-range of hydrocarbons in a variety of hydrogeologic settings. Further limitations, as well as lessons learned and methods to mitigate these limitations, are presented through a series of case studies. STAR can result in >99 percent reduction in contaminant concentrations in treated areas with reduced lifecycle costs and reduced risk.

Pilot Field Tests Discussed in ES&T Article

Savron practitioners, along with their partners, recently co-authored an article now available on the Environmental Science & Technology website. The article, titled “Smoldering Remediation of Coal-Tar-Contaminated Soil: Pilot Field Tests of STAR”, was released 16 November 2015. The article discusses the first field evaluation of STAR for two hydrogeologic units impacted with coal tar at a former manufacturing facility.
