Permable reactive barriers using zerovalent iron

Project Details


Groundwater polluted with chlorinated compounds and metals can be remediated by use of reactive material such as metallic iron. Research is carried out on permeable reactive barriers by use of laboratory experiments, and field investigations. Lately a study on the hydraulic properties and the in situ degradation rates has been carried out at the Vapokon site together with Irene Lo and Keith Lay from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The work continues in student projects.
