Aerospace & Defense

Aerospace manufacturing and DOD sites create unique vapor intrusion and mitigation challenges, as well as complex security and work access restrictions. Clean Vapor is experienced in navigating these unique challenges and delivering customized mitigation systems with patented response-driven controls, remote management tools, and critical performance data while reducing energy and cutting costs for our exclusive clientele.

Chlorinated solvents, mixed commingled fuels, methane, and low permeable soils, coupled with large open building spaces, require extensive soil mapping knowledge and experienced designers to develop a mitigation system that meets these unique challenges. Our unique remote management tools provide performance data, response-driven controls, and unprecedented energy efficiency.

Project Showcase

US Space & Missile Center

Clean Vapor designed and installed a dual-use methane and vapor intrusion mitigation system to mitigate commingled contaminants at Los Angeles Air Force Base. The system features methane sensors within the contaminant stream and pressure differential sensors below the slab. Designed to support ESG goals, this site operates on a sensor-driven algorithm designed to minimize atmospheric methane discharge and maintain specified pressure differentials with minimal electricity consumption. The US Space & Missile Center is equipped with alarms for occupant safety and remote management services to ensure system performance.

Fortune 500 Aerospace Manufacturer

One of Clean Vapor’s most significant mitigation projects includes 37 mitigation systems at a major aerospace manufacturing complex located in the New England area. The project totals over 1.5MM square feet of enclosed building space and the systems provide protection for over 37,000 people on the campus. The buildings consisted of both manufacturing facilities and office spaces, constructed over shallow groundwater, basements, and tunnels. The sub-slab structure is complicated by various fill soils with different permeability, compaction levels, undocumented utilities, and legacy machine pads which provide unique challenges. Manufacturing exhausts, multiple roof shapes, and elevations all contribute to dramatic shifts in interior air pressures that must be overcome as part of the mitigation process. Our science and technology team incorporated our Vapor Guardian™ monitoring panels as part of our designs, which allows our team and clients to track individual system performance with real-time data analytics. The Vapor Guardians provide the ability to dynamically control the systems remotely, create performance documentation, and deliver substantial energy savings.

US Naval Facilities

As the leader in Vapor Intrusion Mitigation, Clean Vapor was selected to author the Vapor Intrusion Mitigation NAVFAC guidance for the U.S. Navy for Existing Buildings and New Construction facilities. These documents have become the primary references for repurposing existing Navy buildings and developing new structures on Naval bases worldwide. For the U.S. Navy, Clean Vapor has designed pre-construction mitigation systems for Multi-Family housing and historic structures at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. Supporting land development for the US Marine Corps aviation hangars, Clean Vapor designed and installed passive Vapor Intrusion Mitigation systems at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
