Technology Merit: Remediation


TerraTherm (Gardner, MA) for becoming the first thermal remediation company to gain certification of their soil heating system and heating components. Through Intertek, one of the world's largest testing, inspection and certification companies, TerraTherm’s patented heater elements and heating system obtained the Electrical Testing Labs (ETL) Mark, a symbol that dates back to 1896 when Thomas Edison founded ETL to provide assurance to consumers through product performance and safety testing.

Through attainment of the marks TerraTherm’s In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) system also demonstrated compliance with published safety standards (UL499 and UL1030), allowing more efficient and safe projects with expanded capability to streamline the permitting process often required by the local inspectors and other stakeholders within the communities of TerraTherm’s projects.
