Forms and Applications

Our systems maximize the effectiveness of zerovalent iron

Zero-Valent Iron (ZVI) can exist in several physical forms including steel wool, iron fibers and iron chips. For contaminated groundwater, ZVI can be mixed with earth, sand or other reactive and nonreactive materials to form a Permeable Reactive Barrier (PRB). As contaminated groundwater flows through the PRB, ZVI reduces and/or dehalogenates the pollutants rendering them immobile.

Consistently maximizing surface area per unit volume is a key to maximizing the effectiveness of our zero valent iron media. Consistency of the surface area per unit volume creates more reaction sites, reduces preferential water flow and improves media life.
