Geosafe Corporation was established in 1988 for purposes of commercializing the patented In Situ Vitrification (ISV) technology. Subsequent to that time the Company has invented, developed and applied a suite of large-scale vitrification technologies specifically suited to remediation of contaminated soil sites and treatment of waste materials. Both in situ and ex situ technologies are available.
The GeoMelt® technologies have been demonstrated and applied to a broad range of hazardous, radioactive, and mixed waste types for government and industrial clients in the United States and around the world. The technologies remove or destroy organic contaminants (such as PCBs and dioxin), and permanently immobilize inorganic contaminants (such as uranium and plutonium) in a high integrity vitrified product that is superior to any other type of immobilization media for long-term environmental exposure. The technologies are unique in their applicability to difficult site remediation and waste treatment applications, including applications involving large amounts of debris, due to their ability to operate at higher than typical melt temperatures and their large-scale. These capabilities also typically enable the GeoMelt® technologies to be applied at significantly lower cost than alternative vitrification technologies.
GeoMelt®site remediation and waste treatment services are now available through Geosafe's exclusive, worldwide licensee, Kurion, Inc.
The patented GeoMelt® In Container Vitrification (ICV) technology was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy as the preferred vitrification technology for demonstration in its Supplemental Treatment Technologies Program directed to treatment of the low-level fraction of Hanford Tank Wastes. The top two photos at left show the GeoMelt ICV technology being employed at the GeoMelt Test Site in Richland, WA. The photo at lower left depicts the GeoMelt technology being employed to remediate a large Superfund site.
Geosafe Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Battelle Memorial Institute of Columbus, Ohio. The GEOSAFE and GEOMELT marks are registered trademarks of Geosafe Corporation.
