Site preparation is complete and full-scale implementation of STAR at a coal tar-impacted site in Newark, New Jersey is now 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. More than 55,000 cubic yards or coal tar-impacted soil will be treated with the STAR process. Please contact us if you're interested in taking a tour of the STAR operations at the site.
The STAR technology will be field tested at two Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) Sites this Fall. The first test (Illinois) is targeting coal tar contamination is a former mill race while the second test (Michigan) is targeting both and an LNAPL zone (water table) and a DNAPL zone (40 ft bgs) associated with a former gas holder.
Savron will be attending conferences to be held in North America and Denmark in the first half of 2015. Learn about the latest advancements in STAR and STARx at our booth and through various platform, keynote, and poster presentations at the following conferences:
STAR was evaluated as an alternative to excavation and disposal at a 37-acre former manufacturing facility in New Jersey impacted with coal tar. Three phases of pilot testing were conducted within two hydrogeologic units (i.e., surficial fill and underlying sand units) to evaluate key design parameters such as: 1) contaminant mass destruction rates; 2) STAR well radius of influence (ROI); and, 3) vapor emissions levels, in preparation for the design...
STARx reactor systems have been developed for the treatment of waste oils and contaminated soils. Similar to in situ STAR, STARx is based on smoldering combustion where the contaminants / waste materials are the source of fuel. The process is self-sustaining following a short duration, low energy input ‘ignition event’, such that the energy of the reacting contaminants is used to pre-heat and initiate combustion of contaminants in the adjacent area...
The AMS Site in Belgium used to produce coke for steel making. Investigations have shown that the backfill of a former meander of a nearby river is nearly saturated with coal tar below the water level (from 7 to 9 meters below ground surface [bgs]). Its excavation and treatment would be very expensive and create numerous nuisances for the neighborhood. Therefore, the agency in charge of its cleanup (SPAQuE) is looking for a cost-effective in-situ treatment technology...

IPSW is an annual competition where students at the University of Western Ontario collaborate on problems from industry partners focusing on materials science, data analytics, environment, and sustainability. The Savron team, who looked at heat recovery systems for STARx reactors, won the 2014 IPSW award.
