GARDNER, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, / -- TerraTherm, Inc. of Gardner Massachusetts USA (TerraTherm) and Nelson Environmental Remediation, Ltd. of Spruce Grove Alberta Canada (Nelson) have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to bring proprietary thermal remediation technology to select Canadian markets. The MOU is a first step toward a formal sublicense agreement, granting Nelson rights to patented technology exclusive to certain areas in Canada.

The scope of thermal technologies available from Nelson and TerraTherm is the most comprehensive on the market, including Thermal Conduction Heating (TCH), Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH), Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE) or combinations of these technologies.

The exclusive Heated Box (HB1100) thermal technology for ex situ treatment on-site will also be offered to the Canadian market. In this method, contaminated soil is treated in batches in a thermal heating system on the surface, allowing the soil to be rapidly decontaminated and reused on the site itself.

Jim Engdahl, Nelson’s recently appointed CEO, says "This is one of the first steps in my new role to diversify Nelson’s remediation technology offerings worldwide.” Engdahl was appointed Director and CEO in March 2017.

“This new partnership brings innovative solutions to the Canadian remediation market,” says James Galligan, TerraTherm’s Senior Vice President of Operations. “The success of our continued international expansion is due in large part to the dedication of partners like Nelson. We choose only the most experienced remediation leaders to deliver our world class proprietary thermal technologies. No other thermal provider offers all mainstream in situ thermal remediation technologies as well as ex situ alternatives in- house,” explains Galligan.
