Reterro Inc., Pleasanton, California, a remediation company that specializes in eliminating hydrocarbon contamination from soil and ongoing waste streams, announced it is doubling the size of its system fleet for on-site earth cleaning.

The new systems will be ready for deployment to customers in the third quarter of 2014, according to the company. The fleet expansion comes a month after Reterro's initiation of a practice specifically designed to serve heightened demand from the U.S. oil and gas industry in the Texas-Oklahoma energy corridor. It also follows the doubling of Reterro's corporate facilities earlier this year.

The fleet employs the Reterro Principle, which removes hydrocarbon waste from soil and attains the desired clean-up level. The company's small on-site footprint and flameless process are designed for immediate certainty in safe soil and waste-stream remediation, the company says. The units are able to attain specified clean-up levels in hours. The Reterro Principle eliminates the need for hauling contaminated soil across jurisdictions, according to the company.

"As we reported in our overview of the first quarter of 2014, Reterro is seeing increasing demand for its green remediation solutions and is undergoing significant growth and financial strengthening," says Reterro CEO Ferdinand Seemann. "Reterro offers the fastest and highest quality clean-up levels of any technology in the market today. Large-scale customers and local communities alike are increasingly endorsing our high-value proposition."

Reterro says its technology is effective in urban, populated and space-constrained environments in which health and safety restrictions prohibit other competing technologies.
