Thermal desorption is an innovative treatment technology that treats soils contaminated with hazardous wastes by heating the soil at realtively low temperatures (200-1000 deg F) so that contaminants with low boiling points will vaporize (turn into gas) and, consequently, separate from the soil. There are three steps in thermal desorption: (1) heating the soil to vaporize the contaminants; (2) treating the vaporized contaminants; and (3) testing the treated soil.
