Eliminating perpetual groundwater liabilities with innovative solution ‘The NET System’

This seminar aims to answer challenging questions such as what NAPL (Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid) thickness justifies remediation, what‘s the optimum recovery rate and how can lifecycle costs be reduced? The NET System is an evaluation and remediation tool that first assesses if remediation is justified and if so, achieves best in class recovery. Using simple design, it has been achieving oil-water ratios of 93-99% in the UK since its introduction.
