2015 Fall Focus Meeting

University Consortium 2015 Fall Focus Meeting

Brown Palace Hotel, Denver, Colorado – Central City Room
November 3 and 4, 2015

Topic

University Consortium (UC) research, and the work by others, is driving recognition that natural assimilation processes often play a large role in managing risks at older subsurface releases of organic compounds. While natural assimilation processes are often consequential, they are also often slow with respect to desired time frames for cleanup. An emerging focus is the use of low level heating (ΔT = 5-20 °C) to passively enhance natural assimilation rates. Potential benefits of thermally enhanced natural assimilation include reduced longevity of releases, greater sustainability, and reduced life cycle costs for sites.
