Malahat Nelson Limited Partnership

Vancouver Island

Nelson Environmental's soil remediation facility at Malahat Business Park. Direct Fired Thermal Desorption (TDU) removes organic contaminants from soil, sludge or sediment by heating them in a machine called a “thermal desorber” to evaporate the contaminants. The evaporation process volatilizes the organic contaminants in the soil into a vapour phase (gases) which in turn, separates them from the solid material and destroys them.
