Thermal Cyclone Washing (TCW) is a soil remediation technology developed and tested at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. TCW is a combination of thermal, chemical, and physical processes using mechanical equipment, surfactants, and a hot water jet to clean soil, sediment, and sludge contaminated with organic constituents. TCW involves high energy mixing of excavated contaminated soils. The technology consists of a two-stage process.
