Enhanced Soil Vapor Extraction:
MECX has developed a vadose zone enhanced soil vapor extraction (ESVE) soil remediation process, which is extremely effective at removing volatile organic compounds (VOC) contamination from tight impermeable soils.
Soil vapor extraction (SVE) is a well known and effective soil remediation technology when applied in permeable soils but has not been historically effective in tight impermeable soils. Our proprietary remediation technology operates as a closed loop recirculation process, using heated air to desiccate the soils and increase the overall permeability. Since there is no external emission, no air permit is required. This ESVE system is particularly well suited for the environmental remediation VOC contamination from dry cleaners.
