The Geosafe In Situ Vitrification Technology is designed to treat soils, sludges, sediments, and mine tailings contaminated with organic, inorganic, and radioactive compounds. The organic compounds are pyrolyzed and reduced to simple gases which are collected under a treatment hood and processed prior to their emission to the atmosphere. Inorganic and radioactive contaminants are encapsulated in the molten soil which hardens to a vitrified mass similar to volcanic obsidian. This mobile technology was evaluated under the SITE Program on approximately 330 yd of contaminated soil at the Parsons Chemical site.
