A Evaluation of Electro-Thermal Dynamic Stripping Process(tm) for the Remediation of a Creosote-Contaminated Superfund Site
Northington, Chad D., Master's thesis, Michigan Technological University, 132 pp, 2004

A 4-month pilot-scale study of the in situ Electro-Thermal Dynamic Stripping Process(tm), a proprietary electrical resistance heating method (McMillan-McGee Corporation), was implemented in 2004 to demonstrate the effectiveness of this method for creosote contamination in the source zone at the Cape Fear Superfund site.
